Summer may have come to a close, but the weather is still beautiful – and perfect for ice cream! It’s that time of year where ice cream shop owners are salvaging the last few weeks of flowing business and trying to implement creative ways to keep customers coming back. If you are looking for a great way to end the season, what’s better than special offers?
By using our Ripples service, you can implement a text club and schedule messages to send to your audience. Simply give keyword to text and the short code to text it to, and voila – they’re in! You can use Ripples to inform customers when limited edition flavors are available, of special events, or just to say hi and reward them for being a loyal customer. One way to encourage patrons to join your text club is to give a special offer upon joining, such as 10% off or a free topping with a purchase.
If you’re thinking you’re too busy running a business to send out random messages to your text club throughout the month, think again. With Ripples, you can schedule the messages at any time. If it’s the beginning of the month and you know you have a packed agenda, you can schedule all of the messages you want to send that month right then! Easy and effortless. Another cool feature Ripples offers is the ability to filter the texts you send out by demographics, birthdays, specific radius, zip code, city, etc. And it doesn’t have to be the same filter every time; you can switch it up with each message. After the Ripple gets fired, you have the ability to view if it sent successfully to everyone in your text club and see if anyone has unsubscribed in the past 24 hours, week, timespan of the club, etc. Then you can see what messages caused people to unsubscribe and tailor your future texts to fit the wants and needs of your customers.
So, what are you waiting for? Implement your customizable text club today to keep your patrons loyal with our Ripples service and end the season with a bang!
