The Secret to Closing More Deals? Start Texting.

Posted by TextUs Team on Dec 12, 2018 1:21:35 PM

If you aren’t texting, you’re missing out on potential deals. Sales have had to pivot since inception, from door-to-door salespeople to letters to phone calls (a big leap!), then calls to email. And, just as you would’ve been missing out on great connections if you hadn’t started emailing your prospects in the past decade, today, you need to text your contacts. Just take a look:

Let’s put those numbers into words.

SOS: How to Use Texting For Announcements and Emergencies

Posted by TextUs Team on Dec 4, 2018 10:56:51 AM

Use texting for quick announcements and emergency blasts to internal staff and contacts. Brief enough to grab attention and more widely-accessed than email or calls (which may be jammed during an emergency), texts are a great way to quickly get time-sensitive messages to your audience.

Reasons you might send an emergency text:

  • Impending catastrophic weather
  • A national emergency affecting your business and customers
  • An active, dangerous situation inside your building

Prepare on how to send an effective SOS text so you’re ready if the emergency strikes.

How to Use TextUs to Make Mobile Scheduling Easy

Posted by TextUs Team on Oct 30, 2018 5:41:48 PM

Remember when you had to message back and forth endlessly just to find a time to meet with a contact? How people would wander off during the scheduling process if it was taking too long to get a meeting on the books? How sometimes you would double-book meetings, not realizing you’d offer the same time slot to two people?

If you’re thinking something like, yes, because these things happened this week!, then we’re going to take a moment to geek out to you about digital scheduling services. If your company isn’t using a platform like Calendly or Doodle or their sales tool cousins, like Hubspot’s Meetings or Drift Meetings, please try one of them out right now.

Aren’t they awesome!?

IT Staffing Firm Meridian Technologies Improved Response Rates by 240% and Increased Submissions with TextUs + Bullhorn

Posted by TextUs Team on Oct 18, 2018 10:11:27 AM

Meridian Technologies, an IT staffing firm, knew the power of texting. “If you’re not texting candidates, you’re behind the eight ball,” said Justin Van Tassel, Director of Recruiting, Talent Acquisition, Training & Development.

Their recruiters were using their personal cell phones to text with prospects and candidates and seeing great response rates over email and phone outreach alone.

But not everyone was comfortable using their personal cell phones, and as a result, Meridian wasn’t able to adopt text messaging company-wide. What’s more, when the staffing firm was using a BYOD (bring-your-own-device) model, management had zero insight into the quality, frequency, and efficacy of text outreach. This left a big hole in their analytics.

Posted by TextUs Team on Apr 9, 2018 2:52:17 PM
