What Key Metrics Are Essential to Tracking & Reporting?
If you’re new to the world of SMS and MMS marketing, you may have questions about the terminology often used to describe their effectiveness. Here’s a quick guide to the key metrics used in tracking and reporting the data from your text message marketing campaigns:
Number of Subscribers
This is the total number of people who have opted to receive your text marketing communications.
Click-through rates measure the percentage of people clicking your links out of the total number of people receiving your text messages.
Conversion rates measure the actual percentage of people making purchases after clicking your links out of the total number of people receiving your texts.
This refers to customers who opt-out from receiving your texts and then decide to opt back in later.
This rate measures the total percentage of people who unsubscribe from the total number of people receiving your text messages.
Opt-outs are the total number of people unsubscribing from receiving your texts.
What Types of Data Do Text Message Analytics Measure?
Crafting compelling content is only half the battle when delivering a successful text message marketing campaign. Once your messages reach your intended audience, text message analytics help you make informed decisions about future campaigns. Text message analytics include the following:
Engagement analytics help gauge customer interest in text message marketing campaigns. Learn what works and doesn’t with content, promotions, and more. Are customers unsubscribing after receiving certain messages? Analyzing your unsubscribe rate can help you identify which content pieces resonate with an audience and which ones fall flat. You can also take a look at response rates to see how much time it takes for customers to respond after receiving texts from your brand. Including links in your messaging is one of the best ways to measure engagement. Tracking tools allow you to see if and when a customer opens one of your links. You can also customize and shorten your links to increase brand awareness.
Message analytics measure everything from your delivery rates, times, and statuses to deactivated numbers that you’ll want to remove from your active subscriber list:
- Delivery Rates – Delivery rates are the percentage of delivered messages in your campaign.
- Delivery Times – Delivery times analyze how long it takes for messages to reach customers. Frequently long delivery times may require investigation to correct delivery errors as quickly as possible. Undelivered messages represent lost customer engagement.
- Delivery Statuses – Delivery statuses help you analyze if your recipient received a message. If a network, system, or carrier issue is to blame but your recipient’s number is still active, your message will be delivered later. However, if the number is no longer valid for that customer or is a landline number, your recipient will not be able to receive your texts.
Have you ever wondered where your subscribers come from? Subscriber analytics help you paint a clearer picture of your subscribers, so you can understand how and why they opted to receive your texts. Knowing more about your subscribers can help you tailor content to meet their expectations while guiding you in creating content that entices future subscribers. See how your subscribers joined and understand their actions better through keyword analysis. Having unique keywords for various promotions or events helps you measure which keywords yield the most successful campaigns.
