How does it cost?
How to get started with transactional SMS?
BSG transactional SMS gateway is integrated into your existing CRM using our advanced transactional SMS APIs using an API key. Once done, define your recipients, set a trigger action or event, and create predetermined messages to send. Or you can launch transactional SMS via SMPP gateway. Install an SMPP Server, set network parameters, establish the peer-to-peer connection, add data and set up your transactional SMS campaign. The customer’s specified action triggers pushing predefined SMS. For example, as soon as someone places an order in your online store, your system will text them an order confirmation in response.
What should I consider before implementing service notifications?
Be it transactional or promotional SMS, you first need the customer’s consent. It can be ticking a dedicated affirmative checkbox upon a checkout, or in the messages already received via other channels, or with a phone number field on a web-portal. Tell them what type of messages to expect. Neglecting an opt-in, or sending excessively may close the door for SMS and lead to legal ramifications. Service SMS scales down friction to interact with your brand. But this also means lowering the churn threshold. So, evaluate your current churn rates before implementing SMS. Reasons for churn might be a product, pricing or shipping issue, or a competitor. Database segmentation helps to find loyal subgroups to pilot SMS subscription with.
How do I convey the brand voice and positive impression in my messages?
BSG supports the pre-made templates where the system pulls up the custom fields with the transaction details such as order number, and customer details such as their name, birthday, products of interest. This makes communication highly personalized and friendly. Include short, branded links to foster more trust. It is also important for your company to register a unique sender alpha-name. It will pop up for your audience every time they receive your SMS keeping your marketing efforts on-brand. And of course, don’t forget to provide the possibility to unsubscribe, adding the corresponding opt-out link.
