What is an SMS notification?

SMS notifications are alerts that display on a mobile phone when a text message is delivered. They can appear as banners on the home screen, pop-ups when you’re using your phone, and notifications on a phone’s texting app that draw recipients’ attention. Unlike push notifications, SMS notifications require no additional apps to reach your recipient, allowing them to engage with your messages on a familiar channel they use every day.

Consistently connect with users at scale

SMS notifications capture contacts’ attention so they’re more likely to read your messages. Send updates, reminders, promotions, and review requests to any opted-in phone number. Reach more contacts through their preferred channel with personalization that encourages engagement and improves retention.

Best practices for crafting effective SMS notifications

Capture opt-in

Collect opt-ins from web forms or inbound text messages so that you can text leads, customers, and employees. Never text without permission, including with staff, without capturing an opt-in to maintain compliance. Allow easy opt-outs with TCPA keywords.

Personalize your messages

Target messages to your audience by creating segments to engage specifically. Use text templates and custom fields to reach entire segments with personalization that builds better relationships.

Keep messages concise and relevant

Ensure timely and consistent delivery by keeping messages under 160 characters. Create texts that are relevant to your recipient to achieve better engagement and improve response rates. Avoid sending too many texts to minimize opt-outs.

Include clear CTAs

Send messages with clear instructions and requirements to improve click-through and response rates. Give contacts the option to text you back for faster resolution times. Encourage interaction through conversational messaging that builds stronger relationships.

Test and optimize message delivery

Schedule SMS notifications to be sent at the right time for your recipients. Test different delivery times for marketing content and experiment with different periods of notice for reminder texts. Refine your messaging based on data and reports collected from Heymarket to improve efficiency.
