1. Shoot for Spontaneity.
If it looks like it’s going to be a hot summer day outside, then text your loyal customers to come in and get a smoothie at half price. Make this a deal that is only available in the afternoon. Spontaneous marketing can be effective and fun. It makes people want to stay on your text marketing list.
