If you’re in an emergency situation or want to make an immediate impact, sending an SMS alert is one of your best and most cost-effective options. Statistics prove that SMS has an average 98% open rate. More importantly most recipients open an SMS in less than 3 minutes.
Here are the most common types of SMS alerts:
Perfect for flash sales, SMS Marketing, and time-sensitive promotions. For a targeted experience, try connecting your sale alerts with your customer’s geolocation. That way, the odds of them converting are even higher - since they will receive alerts only when they’re within a convenient distance of your store.
Did you know 91% of mobile phone users have their devices within reach 24/7 a day? When a community is in a state of emergency, it makes the most sense for that to be broadcasted on a mobile device. This is why SMS safety alerts are so important. Text messages also don’t need an internet connection, which is usually the first to go in a state of emergency.
For a more custom option, special SMS notification alerts can be built into your business through our SMS API. Here are a few examples of what our clients are doing:
- Stock and currency alerts
- Unfamiliar login warning
- Successful money transfers

The Motley Fool uses our SMS API to send their members SMS notifications, once stock market movement appears. Stocks can dip within seconds, that’s why traders need every possible advantage they can get.
To stay ahead of their competition, the Motley Fool also uses our SMS customer support tool to respond to customers as fast as possible. Once they receive a website enquiry, an SMS is sent directly to one of their customer service representatives. That way, any enquiry, good or bad, will be resolved immediately. This keeps everyone happy.
