Twitter is one of the world's biggest platforms for social media; with its 330 million active users monthly. The best part about twitter is that you can reach an incredible number of followers, and you can also do it without spending a dime. I am sure that we all are aware of a tweet of some short that just blew up and completely changed that person's life forever. An example of the sheer power and wonder of Twitter is how a company has found itself in a multi-million-dollar deal with just one single tweet. This one tweet from Marketing Eye’s account was able to reach 1.7 million users on Twitter. While it is nice to go viral, it is even better if a business can benefit from it; which it did.
As a great way to connect with your audience, Instagram has over 1 billion active users monthly and more than 500 million of them use the platform daily.
Fewer than 25% of businesses say they are satisfied with their conversion rates. That is pretty depressing.

No longer can marketing teams rely on basic selling tactics to bring customers; those attempts do not work anymore. Consumers today are heavily drawn to things with extreme value, to build a relationship that goes deeper than the surface level can carry a relationship with your customer a long way. Brands are starting to put far more emphasis on developing brand loyalty and creating lifetime customers. One of the ways that they are going about this is experiential marketing.
Let's say you are remodeling your house, and you need a contractor. You have done your research on multiple search engines and found a few options, but don't know who to choose. Before you commit to anything, you call up friends, family, or turn to Yelp, Instagram, Facebook, or any other online platforms to help you find the best person for the job.
Did you know on average we check our phone 85 times per day? The point? People are constantly checking their phones, and they are always nearby. Companies need to understand that our world has gone mobile, and need to use that to their advantage. In fact, a great way to increase customer engagement at a low cost and receive a high return on investment is by text message marketing.
