“Business text messaging is fast becoming the most convenient and reliable way to reach out and interact with your customers,” said Jim Murphy, CEO at Broadvoice. “This is even more important during the pandemic when digital strategies are the primary way to reach your customers.”
Text messages have, on average, a 98 percent open rate, 95 percent read rate, 75 percent engagement rate, and a 45 percent response rate – which is a significant improvement over phone or email for communications or marketing.
“Broadvoice Bubble not only saves time by automating routine notifications and responses, but it also allows businesses to give their customers immediate and responsive service they’ll rave about,” said Murphy. “Plus, it enables businesses to drive revenue by sending promotions and special offers that customers can see and activate with one click.”
