Get your SMS Campaigns ready for Christmas

20 November 2014

As the cold weather sets in and the leaves start to fall down from the trees, it gives us all a reminder that Christmas is coming and we businesses need to prepare for the festive season.

With only a few weeks till Christmas, consumers are beginning to think of their Christmas needs such as buying presents for the family or booking a table for a fabulous Christmas dinner. Regardless of your motivations, now is the time that businesses to start preparing and implementing their marketing strategies and SMS marketing is a great way to communicate with both consumers, business partners and colleges.

Here are a few interesting ideas for reaching your target audience via text messages:

Pubs and Restaurants

As a popular destination for families and corporate days during the Christmas period, the hospitality market should utilise this season to promote Christmas offers and deals, such as “Corporate Christmas meal” or “Christmas offer: every child gets one desert for free”.


Using text messages in schools and education is a good way to invite parents to some Christmas bazaars or Christmas celebrations. Alongside this, Schools are able to communicate school holiday dates, or ‘snow days’ with parents directly to their mobile phone.


The Christmas season is a retail season, and with an increased level of competition and choice, businesses should promote their Christmas offering to help increase uplift and market share.

Travel Agencies

With the cold weather rolling in, some consumers like to get away from it all, and travel for their Christmas break. With SMS marketing and promotion, travel agencies can offer ‘last minute deals’ and ‘Christmas get-always’.


For manufacturers, retailers or distributors using text messages to their client base, is a fast and uncomplicated way to tell the customers that you are on holiday over Christmas, for example “Please note, that we are on holidays from 24th December until 7th January”.

In general businesses can use text message campaigns during this Christmas period, as quick and easy way to communicate with their customers and clients, as well as winning some new business along the way.  Call us on 08451 221 302, or email our Customer Service Team directly for more information on how TextAnywhere can help you.
