Want to learn more about customer service text messaging and SMS customer support? We’ve answered some common questions below. Contact our team if you need any additional tips, best practices, or information.
What is SMS software?
Modern SMS software or SMS customer service software refers to cloud-based platforms that help businesses text with consumers, then receive and read texts. These platforms allow you to text-enable a business number or add a new number for texting. These platforms, Heymarket included, are accessible via websites or as apps on your phone.
What is SMS customer service or text-based customer service?
These are both terms for service that customers can access by texting your number or messaging your brand through channels like Facebook Messenger. To communicate with customers via SMS, you need SMS software like Heymarket. It will help you respond to and manage the many customer SMS messages you receive.
Can I send SMS to customers?
Yes, but before you send SMS to customers, they must opt in to receive texts from you. This means they agree to receive communication from your customer texting service. They also must provide their phone number. If they have done both of these things, you may text them with relevant, valuable customer service content. This includes account notifications, ticket or case follow-ups, return updates, and important reminders.
How do I text customers?
First, set up your business texting platform and import your contacts by uploading a CSV with their information. Then, access the messaging tool in your user interface. Finally, select your contact, write your message, and either send it immediately or schedule it for later. Platforms like Heymarket make it easy to send SMS messages to customers.
How do customers text service teams?
You need to share your business’s SMS number and let customers know they can text customer service team members. Publicize this information by including it on a Contact Us page, posting about your text customer support on social media platforms, and emailing customers who belong to your email newsletter list.
What does conversational SMS mean?
Some business texting platforms only allow one-way messaging. With one-way messaging, you can only message customers and they can’t reply. Conversational SMS refers to two-way text messaging between agents and customers. Conversational support—providing customer service through messaging conversation—is an effective tactic for helping, engaging, and forming relationships with customers.
How do I send professional text messages?
Text etiquette is new territory for a lot of customer service teams. Use a casual yet polite tone, like you would with a new neighbor. However, with SMS, you should also add some personality. If your brand guide allows, use emojis and GIFs to liven up conversations and let customers know they’re texting with people, not bots.
How do I get customers to text instead of call?
Some customers will always prefer calls. However, once many customers find out that you offer texting, they’ll start sending their questions via message, empowering your team to answer more customers in less time. Promote your SMS number and opt-in process to encourage them to sign up. Share this information on your website, across your social media channels, and in your email newsletters. Include your response times so customers know they’ll receive faster replies through messaging.
