Why businesses are using text reminders for appointments?

Text reminders are revolutionizing how businesses connect with their customers. But, maybe you know that one of the biggest nuisances you can get in your business is missed appointments. Yes, every missed appointment translates into lost revenue. 

But your business doesn’t have to go through this unfortunate experience. On the contrary, modern communication technology has brought unprecedented opportunities which businesses like yours are taking advantage of; Let’s see what the mobile phone can help you achieve in this respect.

Shrewd businesses realize the potential created by mobile phones. Today, almost everyone has and depends a lot on their mobile phones. Remember, in the USA alone; it is estimated that within the first fifteen minutes of waking up, 79% of Americans check their phones. But, that’s not all; these people check their phones about 150 times per day on average.

That tells you how much your business has not taken advantage of this wide access to these devices.

What Is a Text Appointment Reminder?

If you are new to this concept, know it’s not rocket science. But, of course, you most likely use ordinary text messages to communicate with your loved ones and for business purposes. The idea is the same but differs in terms of purpose and scope. 

A business appointment reminder text is an SMS text that you send to your customers on behalf of your organization. The purpose of this text is strictly formal; it is meant to remind the customer or any other person of interest about a pending appointment. 

If you have ever missed a crucial appointment because you forgot all about it, you know how vital a reminder via a text to your mobile phone is.  

These reminders can be used in a wide variety of business situations like the following: 

 

The primary goal of text reminders for appointments is to remind the target individual about an upcoming appointment with your business or organization. 

Most text reminders are brief and to the point; they contain the day and time of the appointment or a relevant link to more information about the upcoming appointment.   

Text messaging alert system allows businesses to send messages quickly to a defined list of recipients. The use of such a system has been widely adopted by companies, who find this method easy, convenient, fast, and affordable. In addition, many text messaging systems have excellent security and alert features which their users can regularly update.

Some of the benefits you’ll get by using text message reminders include:

6 Key Benefits of Text Appointments Reminders for Your Business

Cost-Effective Marketing

The use of text messaging reminders can be cost-effective for your business. For example, if yours is a small firm, you don't have to launch a costly promotional campaign to advertise your products and services. Sending out text messages to your current and prospective customers is cheaper. Compared to traditional means of reaching out to consumers like advertising in newspapers, mailing, and distributing flyers or on radio, a text messaging system is cost-efficient.

Saves Time

Companies that have a text messaging system can save time with the use of this technology. Bulk uploading will help you achieve this fit by allowing you to upload and schedule all the necessary text messages immediately from a CSV file. By sending text messages, your business can remind customers about the intended appointment quickly and efficiently. There's no need for your firm to send out promotional flyers that take days or even weeks to find their way into the mailbox of the said customers. Nor do you have to instruct your staff to spend hours on the phone calling up your customers or reminding them about an upcoming promotion.

Communicates With Target Audience

There's no way for the target recipient to ignore the message sent through a text-messaging alert system. A customer can't delete the said text message in his inbox without first reading it. On the part of employers, a text message is a more realistic way of alerting employees about a change in an upcoming promo, business process, or an impending weather disturbance.

Message Groups

Your text messaging system does not limit your firm to sending messages to a specific group of recipients. Instead, you can create an unlimited number of groups. For instance, you can create separate groups for customers, company executives, employees, and so on.

Appointment Rescheduling

Unfortunately appointments occasionally need to be rescheduled but according to SpotOn, less than 5% of scheduled appointments get canceled after a customer receives a text message reminder. With TextP2P the client can simply text a keyword to get an automated message to help them reschedule the appointment. You can provide them a link to your calendar or a number to call to easily reschedule their appointment with you.

Customers Prefer Text Messages

Did you know that 95% of text message appointment reminders are read within 3 minutes?
