  24. 24. SMS is used a lot in disco’s, when the sound is to heavy to speak to each other, so people sent SMS to communicate.

  27. 27. Do’s and don’ts<br /><ul><li>SMS is meant for quick messaging ... tell it short ... to the point. ... the 160 characters are indeed a challenge.
  28. 28. Is your service using SMS ?... promote it! Cross Selling, put it on every document of </li></ul> your organisation… don’t think that just having a website will boost your SMS <br /> traffic.<br /><ul><li>Privacy restrictions … don’t burn your database of numbers ... end users get irritated after receiving more than 2 messages/month.</li></li></ul><li>Do’s and don’ts<br /><ul><li>What is “privacy” to consumers? We use the same words to mean at least 3 different things:
  29. 29. I don’t want you to know about me.
  30. 30. it’s ok for you to know about me, but don’t tell anyone else.
  31. 31. don’t bother me at all.
  32. 32. and separately, I want my data secured .
  33. 33. SMS is a fusion between “speak” and “write”.We write what we say ... but beware who you are sending the message to!
  34. 34. If you promote your SMS action TEST IT and verify the printed version of your action!</li></li></ul><li>
  35. 35. A demo of an POS application <br /><ul><li>To register: sent the keyword MOMO to 8012
  36. 36. A free confirmation message will be sent to confirm your registration and a way to unsubscribe in the future.
  37. 37. When the promotion will become active, a SMS with couponning will be sent in order to retrieve your product as a member of an exclusive club.</li></li></ul><li>Why integrate SMS in communication?<br /><ul><li>SMS is an extreme personnalised way of communication and very easy to setup for mass communication. (also two ways)
  38. 38. SMS is very direct and will always be read.
  39. 39. SMS reduces your costs of traditional forms of (printed) direct marketing.
  40. 40. sending a letter … postage fees of € 0,59 per letter.
  41. 41. sending a SMS costs you max. € 0,10 .</li></ul>It’s faster and cheaper and you can determine on your own when the end user must receive it!<br />
  42. 42. Why integrate SMS in communication?<br /><ul><li>SMS gives always a fast respons, people react instantaneously, so you get very fast feedback regarding the success ratio of the action.
  43. 43. SMS can be received everywhere, no need to login on a computer!
  44. 44. SMS has a viral effect, messages are easily forwarded between people.
  45. 45. Cross Selling : state your website or other promo in the textmessage (if you have the space).</li></li></ul><li>160 characters ...<br />a limitation ...<br />or a challenge?<br /><ul><li>You can put more information in an emailing, but maybe too much?
  46. 46. Too much information makes that people don’t read it.</li></li></ul><li>Why Golden Bytes?<br /><ul><li>We are a technical platform, created in 1998
