What is an SMS Landing Page?

Sending traditional SMS is a great way to send customers a simple message quickly and with no frills. But pictures speak a thousand words, and that's where RCS and SMS Landing Pages come in.

Esendex’s new rich message builder, Messaging Studio, enables you to design and send mobile landing pages which put the user experience on a mobile first, rather than secondary to desktop.

By using images, offer codes and call-to-action buttons you'll be able to drive customer engagement, and increase your process conversions.

What can SMS Landing Pages be used for?

Here are some of the ways your business can send richer, more visually appealing content to your customers.

Property
Utilities
Retail

Retailers can stay ahead of the competition, reduce costs, and increase sale conversions by sending offers and promotions directly to customers' mobile devices.

SMS Landing Pages can help with this by providing the branding and imagery you would expect to see on a traditional webpage, but, critically, offering a more streamlined shopping experience.

Example applications include:

  • Deliver personalised marketing and promotions
  • Receive payments by linking to secure payment portals
  • Digital receipts
  • Delivery updates and confirmations.
Finance

Financial service providers can replace any paper based communication with a personalised, mobile focused SMS Landing Page, which will reduce their cost to serve and increase customer engagement.

Traditionally plain customer communications like statements and alerts can also be presented in a more visually appealing way to increase the engagement level with the customer.

Example applications include:

  • Personalised statements
  • Fraudulent activity alerts
  • Links to secure payment portals
  • Marketing and promotions
  • Rich appointment reminders, including maps and branch pictures.
Healthcare

Healthcare providers can ensure that important communications like appointment reminders reach their destination and are understood, without the need to rely on slow and unreliable postal mail. Providers will benefit from the inclusion of "Save to Calendar", "Call Us" and interactive map buttons, which aid the patient's journey and reduce no-shows.

Providers are also able to make substantial cost savings by switching from a paper-based strategy, to a digital strategy employing SMS Landing Pages.

Example applications include:

  • Appointment reminders with links to re-arrange
  • Maps to healthcare provider location
  • Links to appointment booking platforms
  • Deliver test results
  • Supply prescriptions
Property

Increase your conversions with image-rich communications. Make it easier for agencies to alert potential buyers to their perfect property, without the need to search on property websites.

Estate agencies will be also be able to reduce the amount of time that their agents need to spend calling potential buyers by sending richer communications which promote self-service.

Example applications include:

  • Arrange viewings and add them to your mobile device's calendar
  • Appointment confirmations including photos of agent and property
  • Get directions to the property with interactive maps
  • New/ newly reduced property notifications
  • Links to legal requirements
Utilities

Utility providers can save money by switching from a paper based communication strategy, to a digital strategy which employs SMS Landing Pages.

Communications can also be tracked and reported on, meaning that providers can say with certainty that important communications have reached their customers.

Example applications include:

  • Engineer appointment reminders
  • Smart meter roll outs
  • "Works in your area" alerts
  • Supplying bills/Linking to payment portals
  • Marketing and promotions.
