We really are a generation of “deletion creatures” and by that I mean that out of the 100 emails you might receive in one day, how many of them do you really read?

Yet, when it comes to SMS, it really is a different story.

SMS, stands for “short message service” and is considered today to be an indispensable resource within mobile marketing ecosystem. Not only that, SMS has an open rate of 95%. That’s greater than any other messaging service around.

Most mobile providers offer unlimited texts on affordable SIM-only contracts, meaning, it’s made affordable for even the smallest budgets.
