Recently, we ran a sms marketing campaign for a retail client, Halloween Alley, that really only gets noticed during one time of the year: Halloween. During that time, a frenzy of people rush into stores and go purchase-crazy, buying costumes, accessories and getting ideas for Halloween. Before and after this time, well, let’s just say it can be quiet enough to hear the tiptoed footsteps of a looming ghost, if one was left to haunt the premises.

How did we help a client collect customer data with Text to Join?
Halloween Alley is not exactly top-of-mind until the Halloween season approaches, we helped them grow their mobile list to take advantage of sms marketing campaigns to stay top of mind and drive more customers in store during their busy season. In this previous post we went through how to grow your marketing lists using in store mobile strategies.
We ran a 30-day campaign for Halloween, using our in-store list growth tools and text-to-join. We created Keywords and offers for each store location and then promoted the offer using our Interactive Signage.
This in-store campaign resulted in 2000 new unique customer contacts – scary good results. We collected First Name, Last Name, Email Address, validated Mobile Number and Opt-in to stay compliant.
These new contacts become the foundation for Halloween Alley’s sms marketing campaigns!
We can’t say enough about how important it is to get accurate information from your customers. Your list growth strategy is the foundation to any good sms marketing strategy!
