SMS has the advantage of being less formal and more flexible than electronic mail (email) or phone calls. It is possible to target the audience based on different information collected such as their name, their preferences or their past buying tendencies.
With a personalized SMS, your targets are affected by the precision of your message. Customers sense attention from you and feel distinguished among your hundreds of other contacts. They are more likely to engage with your message.
