Use SMS templates to easily get more customers and sales

SMS messages are a direct communication channel with customers and you should use them to your advantage, as they don’t rely on internet connection or the latest model of cell phones. SMS have a very high open rate, and when you get your customers to sign up voluntarily to receive messages, their effectiveness in generating sales can be quite high.
