How SMS marketing conquered the corporate world?

The world today is a very fast one that contains people with limited time and very busy schedules, so people nowadays are not patient enough to listen to the advertisements or read paragraphs of advertisements. That is, a company cannot call a person through telephone to tell him/her about the company's offers because of the reasons like company doesn't know the mood of the customer they are calling or he/she might be too busy to attend the call. This has made companies take the decision that they present their offers in the shortest and fastest way possible. Thus SMS marketing was adopted. This helps companies to communicate with a single person or a group of persons in a fast and cost effective way. Also the time of the customer is saved. Another advantage is that only one message need to be typed and can be sent to many people at the same time.
 
The above mentioned technique is called as bulk SMS service. Another thing is that people take cell phones where ever they go making SMS a medium of great reach. A method of store and deploy is also used in which message sent does not go directly to customer but gets stored in a server called SMSC server. This method's advantage is that if a customer is out of coverage area or if mobile is switched off then the message will wait till he/she gets to an area with proper coverage or switches on the mobile and then gets delivered to customer. The advantage of SMS marketing is that messages sent are sure to be delivered. The customers who are willing to accept company's offers will respond and that would be in groups.  

SMS marketing and bulk SMS services enhance your brand popularity and volume of revenue to a great extent. This is the reason why majority of business people prefer SMS marketing as their prime promotional technique.
