The competitive landscape for Email Service Providers (ESPs) has undergone significant change. Sure – marketers more than ever understand the need to invest with an ESP, as tools to boost email communication, targeting and tracking have become essential. However, with 90%+ of the U.S. owning cell phones and 90%+ of cell phone owners keeping their mobile within arms' reach 24/7, the digital world has shifted off of people's desktops and into their pockets. Moreover, email's non-optimal open and time-to-open rates make it ineffective for two-way and time sensitive communication – both hallmark qualities of mobile communication.￼
That's what makes integrating SMS mobile messaging so powerful for ESPs. SMS complements email elegantly, providing a direct, interactive and immediate pipeline to consumers. Plus, SMS and email strategy are similar, given the importance of developing a subscriber list mapped to various segmentation data.
During this webinar, we analyzed SMS integration for ESPs, putting specific focus on the keys to be successful.
