MOBILE COUPONS are much more effective than paper!
It’s simple. People don’t redeem paper coupons like they used to. It’s a hassle to print them, cut them out, and remember to keep them in your pockets so you can have them handy just at the right moment.
On the other hand, people have their phones with them at all times and so the redemption rates for mobile coupons are much higher compared to paper coupons.
Use Pocket Promo to create your restaurant’s own Mobile Keywords!
You’ve seen the same technology on American Idol, heard it on the radio, or seen it on a billboard. People can text your mobile keyword to Pocket-Promo’s short code (69302) to join your mobile distribution list and start receiving your mobile coupons. You can also setup an automated message to be texted immediately back to your customers.
Text messaging is the perfect way to get the word out about:
- 2-for-1 specials
- Discounts (30% off your next purchase)
- Free stuff (get a free ice cream cone with your next purchase)
- ‘Kids Eat Free’ Nights
- Any important announcement
Not everyday is a busy day. Especially with the economy in a slump, sending a mobile text message coupon to your highly targeted audience is the only way to instantly turn your slow days into busy ones without planning weeks ahead of time. Even if you have to offer discounts, it’s always better to have some business as opposed to no business.
