SMS – Blast it Your Way

Did you know that there are 110 million mobile telephone subscribers in the country today? The Philippines’ population is reportedly at 100 million to date. There was even a time that the text messages being sent reached 2 billion. Wow that’s a LOT!

Being the Text Capital of the World, it is not surprising that businesses and companies take advantage of sms use to promote their products and services. Because why not? Almost all people we know have mobile phones. Also, it is not that pricey to send a text message because of unlimited texting promos of mobile networks.

With the holidays fast approaching, businesses are sure to offer a lot of sale promotions. There are so many ways to communicate to your consumers nowadays with the help of social media of course. But let’s face it, not everyone has access to an Internet connection 24/7. So communicating via SMS is still one of the most effective marketing strategy.
