Maybe you have bad associations with texting a lot of people at once. You think “mass texting” and you might picture the worst kind of business communication -- anonymous, generic outreach or promotional messages that don’t meaningfully consider the audience on the other side of them.
When text messaging first started being used for business, campaigns were all about impersonal marketing. Contacts received bland, promotional messages from 5-digit numbers. These messages didn’t inspire conversation or connection -- often they were just interruptions that got quickly deleted.
Smartphones have become the primary way we take photos.That means that when your customers are shopping, attending conferences, or networking, they use their phone to take photos of products, informative presentations, and even business cards.
You use Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) all the time, probably without thinking too much about it. Whenever you text a funny GIF to your friends or a breathtaking pic of the sunset, you’re tapping the power of MMS.
You may not know it, but you’ve been texting in the dark. If you’ve wondered whether or not your texts were received, how well your messages perform, and whether you were sending at optimal days and time, you’ve likely relied on rough estimates and guesses. In short, you’ve been texting blind.
You may think of business communication as emotionless. You’re just conveying facts, solving problems, and making good decisions, right?
On closer look, emotion doesn’t just help you communicate effectively -- conveying a little excitement, happiness, frustration, or doubt can make you a better businessperson.
