With SMS notifications, you can quickly update and alert customers and ensure that your urgent messages have the best visibility.
What are SMS notifications?
SMS notifications are a way for businesses to inform their customers about any changes to schedules or orders, emergency alerts, upcoming events, or anything that the customer should be notified about that is time-sensitive.
SMS notifications are perfect for promotional marketing messages as well as support and update notifications. Whatever the use case, SMS notifications will help you get the best reach and higher engagement with your customers.
Why should you use SMS notifications?
SMS is fast and convenient. Every mobile phone can receive SMS messages, making it the perfect channel to launch notifications and ensure customers are always informed.

Small and medium businesses can keep engagement up and gain valuable real estate on their customers’ devices with SMS notifications, without going over budget on their communication strategy.
SMS notifications: The back-up plan
If you use other channels to communicate with customers, be sure to add SMS as a fallback channel. SMS notifications don’t rely on data or Wi-Fi availability, so when messages can’t be sent over chat apps due to bad service they can be re-routed to SMS.
This is ideal for time-sensitive messages and important updates that customers should know about as they happen. Don’t get stuck with undelivered messages and keep your customers satisfied with back-up SMS notifications.
When should you use SMS notifications?
SMS notifications can be applied across industries to make sure communication with customers is clear and prompt. Improve your customer service and satisfaction by alerting customers ahead of time about changes they need to know about.
They are the perfect tool for emergency messages, time-sensitive scenarios, alerts for bank transactions, registration confirmations, and promoting events and sales.
