But The 2014 Businesses Texting Customer Survey (http://Autosend.io/SMS-Survey) shows there’s nothing to be afraid of. In fact, there are some surprising insights in this SMS marketing study that show you might not be texting your customers enough.

2. Over 52% of them get text messages from their friends the most. This is a perfect opportunity to start a referral program using text messages.
3. Most of those surveyed say they’ve received an SMS from a business before. Don’t be the 25% not getting the amazing results text message marketing can bring.
4. Believe it or not, the survey found that your customers actually want text messages from you. In fact, 50% of those surveyed said they wouldn’t mind if a business send text messages to them one to five times a week or more. This is shocking since so many businesess are so hesistant to “bother” their customers with text messages.
