Sending messages with rich media offers a higher engagement rate than standard texts and other forms of advertising (up to 250%). All you need is customer consent and a trusted MMS marketing platform to get started. TapOnIt makes MMS marketing easy for businesses spanning all industries. Let’s get in touch!

Increased Engagement

A picture is worth a thousand words. MMS marketing gets attention and encourages interaction. It’s about creating unique branded content that’s meant to be shared with others. Pairing your text blasts with redemption codes lets you measure their effectiveness in real-time while giving customers meaningful ways to connect.

Enhanced Customer Experience

MMS marketing gives you more creative ways to communicate your messages to customers. Creating a superior customer experience goes a long way in building loyalty to your brand. Rich media leads to a richer customer experience. Don’t limit yourself to boring black-and-white texts. Give your customers much-needed visuals to help drive conversions and engagement.

Better Return on Investment

When you enhance your text marketing with images, GIFs, and video, it’s less likely to be ignored. MMS messages are shared nearly eight times more often than SMS messages, resulting in greater exposure and a potent boost to your campaign’s ROI. Businesses across many industries rely on MMS to more effectively hook their patrons and encourage them to get their friends on board.

Are There Character Limits in MMS Marketing?

SMS (Short Message Service) has been considered the gold standard in the mobile marketing field ever since it became the standard during the 1990s. However, it’s always had some drawbacks, one of which being how it limits texts to 160 characters. MMS marketing takes SMS to the next level. MMS can have up to 1,600 characters and supports photos, videos, and animated GIFs in addition to text. MMS marketing is often more effective than SMS because images help you capture an audience’s attention. When was the last time you ignored a text with photos? Exactly.

What Types of Files Can Be Sent in MMS Text Marketing?

MMS text marketing supports various file types, including JPGs, JPEGs, PNGs, GIFs, and animated GIFs. File size limitations will vary by cellular carrier. However, TapOnIt can help you optimize and compress files for the smoothest message delivery. While MMS marketing is widely accepted throughout the United States, it isn’t supported by some carriers in different countries. If you need to reach international customers, we suggest sending an SMS with a file link.
