Why Choose MMS Over SMS?

Think about it. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a 160-character text message is nothing compared to an infographic, meme or GIF to share your message. Plus, with Multimedia Text Alerts you get unlimited characters (that means more words to get your message across).

MMS texts aren’t just limited to pictures. File types such as images (jpg/png), slideshows (gif), audio clips (mp3),  and videos (mp4) can all be included, as long as the file is under 500KB.

There’s a reason Multimedia Text Alerts have the highest read and response rates of any digital outreach. Images and video can convey emotions like humor, outrage or excitement, which increase reaction and response.

No Spam & Instant Viewing

Did you know the average person checks their phone 150 times a day? 

Yes. That probably includes you, too. But don’t worry, this is good news.

150 times a day means you have 150 chances to capture a person’s attention. And since Multimedia Text Alerts appear as notifications as phones,  there’s no need to wait for your audience to check their mailbox, email or log on to social media. They can see your message instantly, and the more engaging your text is, the more likely you are to get responses.

Multimedia Text Alerts also have a 98.5% open rate, which means your message gets through. Say goodbye, spam filters!

Personalization with a Better Price Tag

Stop marketing to your audience like they’re just a number in your database. Multimedia Text Alerts allow you to engage in one-on-one conversations at a fraction of the cost of traditional forms of advertising. 

Your hard-earned marketing dollars should go to a form of outreach that conveys who you are and what you’re about. Can a black and white message do that?
