NEW! Announcing Actionable Analytics

Announcing Actionable Analytics

We all rely on many tools and apps both personally and for the businesses we are part of. However, with such a large number of apps and the lack of actionable analytics, it can get tricky (at times almost impossible) to figure out which ones are contributing to your ROI.

At Salesmsg we are committed to building a platform that will help transform the way you engage your customers, and in the process, boost your key business metrics.

But we don’t want you to take our word for it. That is why, today we are excited to introduce a number of new and improved Actionable Analytics features to give you insights into how effectively you are using Salesmsg, and what you can do to get the most out of the platform.

The first feature of the Actionable Analytics suite is Conversion Tracking. 

Conversion Tracking helps you understand exactly how your Salesmsg Broadcasts are converting your prospects into customers. There are unlimited conversion scenarios that you may be interested in tracking such as:

  • the number of products you sell on your e-commerce site
  • the number of new leads you were able to generate through your landing page
  • How many newsletter subscriptions or webinar registrations you have gotten, and many more!

Tracking a conversion event in Salesmsg is very easy. Simply create a new Conversion, specify the URL of the specific page that indicates a successful conversion, and a value for your conversion.

The last thing you need to do before you start tracking conversions is add the provided code snippet to every page on your website.

From there include these conversion events in Broadcasts, the tracking will start!

Click Tracking

In addition to Conversion Tracking, Salesmsg has a Click Tracking feature for Broadcasts and Triggers. The cool thing about this feature is that if you include more than one link in the message body of a Broadcast, the number of clicks generated will be broken down by links.

Triggers & Broadcasts Analytics

To help you further understand the effectiveness of your Broadcasts and Triggers, Salesmsg provides a number of metrics beyond total clicks such as total Sent, Failed, Replies and even Opt-outs.

What Is SMS Marketing? Everything You Need To Know

What Is SMS Marketing? Everything You Need To Know

Note: this post on SMS Marketing was originally published in November 2019. We have periodically updated it to ensure that the information is as current as possible. We last refreshed it on November 21, 2021.

What Is SMS Marketing?

SMS (short message service) marketing is the process of sending promotional, transactional, and other marketing-related messages to customers via SMSs on mobile phones.

SMS marketing is just another marketing channel for your company to reach your customers. For example, you can combine SMS marketing and email marketing for more targeted drip campaigns.

However, unlike most other marketing channels, SMS marketing tends to be extremely precise due to its 160 character limit.

Despite those limits, many marketers today rely on SMS marketing as a quick, affordable way to engage their target audiences. Indeed, SMS marketing is one of the most commonly used marketing tactics today. It’s reliable, accessible and will help you reach your customers in no time.

In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about SMS marketing and show you how to leverage it for your company.

New Salesmsg Pricing – 2021

Over the last 5 years, we’ve added over 135+ new features, fixed over 3,174+ bugs, made over 1,542+ and we are not slowing down. Meanwhile, our prices have been fixed.

While the plans we previously had did not reflect the major improvements we made to the platform over the last couple of years, the major drawback was the lack of flexibility for our customers

Today Salesmsg is used by businesses of all sizes, for different a wide variety of use cases.

However, prior to this change in our pricing structure, not every business could choose a plan that suits its needs. For that reason, when we designed the new pricing structure we had flexibility as the core principle in mind.

We are delighted to bring to you today a pricing structure that is flexible to suit your needs.

A Plan for Every Business 

The first and perhaps most important improvement we added to our pricing structure is the flexibility with monthly credits.

You are no longer required to pick one of two widely divergent plans. If your anticipated usage falls somewhere in between then there is a plan for you.

Pay for Salesmsg Only When You Need it

In addition to flexibility with the volume of credits you use, there is also flexibility on frequency. If your need for business texting and calling is frequent, then you can choose a monthly subscription.

Alternatively, if your need for texting is seasonal for example around major holidays or tax season, then you can opt for a Pay-As-You-Go plan.

Pay-As-You-Go is a flexible lite option with fewer features, designed for businesses with sporadic need for texting.

Transparent Billing

Lastly, your Salesmsg bill is clearer than ever. As the platform grew, the range of add-on products you can include in your subscription grew as well.

Now you will be able to see the breakdown of what you are paying for, between subscription and other add-ons such as Seats, Numbers, Bulk Credits, and more!
