How It Works

Four Simple Steps

Step 1 

Select Your Offer

Select an offer that you would like to give for birthdays and anniversaries.  

We suggest a small small service like free tire rotation or check your fluids.  Keep in mind that the goal is that they feel a relationship built between your company and you are the only one they consider for taking care of "their baby" car.

Step 2

Post Signs About The VIP Club

  • Text Hover
Once you have your offer, we will create signs to let your customers and visitors know about the VIP Club.

The signs will have your unique code and phone number listed.

Step 3 

Invite quest to join your VIP Club

It is important to have all of your staff involved in inviting customers to join the club.  Don't depend on signs alone.

Just a brief mention while giving a client their receipt and/or at the cash register, "make sure to join or VIP club for upcoming specials", is a nice touch.

Benefits of SMS Marketing

SMS marketing comes with a number of benefits that can help move your business forward. Here are some benefits of using this digital marketing technique:

It Promises the Best Engagement Rate

No other marketing medium has the type of engagement rate SMS marketing offers. While marketing emails can stay in people's inbox for several days before they are opened, researches have shown that more than 90% of all text messages are opened and read within the first few minutes of receiving them.
The fact that more than 95% of today's adults own mobile phones which do not require internet bundles to send and receive these short messages further shows that SMS marketing has the highest engagement rate ever seen.

Their Platforms are Easy to Track

The Invoteq SMS service offers a very trackable platform. With text messages, you can easily manage your marketing campaigns directly from your desktop. We do not require any software or app for you to download, which means you can handle everything straight from the dashboard.

Very Interactive Content

SMS marketing comes with the advantage of receiving fast responses from your prospects. You only need to include a link to your offer or a reply button in your message. This medium allows you to send short messages to your audience and prospects with a link that directs them to your site for more interaction.

Immediate Delivery of Messages

One other very important advantage of SMS marketing is that it gains relevant insight quickly. It is possible to set up a text message marketing campaign now and receive several hundreds of clicks and feedbacks within a couple of minutes.

Gives More Room for Customization

One other important benefit of SMS marketing is that it gives you the chance to customize and personalize your messages. You can address the recipient directly using words like "first name" " bday", etc.

Using SMS for Marketing

One very amazing thing about text message marketing is that it offers you the chance to be creative and flexible in your marketing messages. This means you can decide to engage your customers and prospects using different SMS strategies. Here are some effective ways to use SMS for marketing:

Birthday and Anniversary Celebrations

Everyone is looking for a good deal and where to save a few dollars. When sending your customers messages about your exclusive deals, make sure you mention coupons. This tactic will make your customer feel he/she is getting good value from your text messages and will always look forward to receiving them.

Use Drip Campaigns

Birthday and Anniversary celebrations is a great time to get a customer to come back to your business.  Offering a special gift to celebrate, they are likely to bring people with them for the celebration that will also purchase items from your business.

Run Polls

Creating a poll for your customers and subscribers will help you learn valuable information about your customer base and customer opinions. It will also help the customers feel more connected to your business as a part of the major decision-making processes. This type of engagement is healthy for sustaining your business and keeping your subscribers for as long as you are in business.

Introduce Contests

Sometimes coupons and small incentives are not enough to engage your customers. With SMS marketing you can engage your customers by offering them bigger rewards through contests on your social media. Simply send out text messages about these contests and include links to your sites in your SMS.
