HandsFreeSMS and Shopify SMS

Shopify is a subscription-based software that allows anyone to set up an online store and sell their products. An average revenue received per customer on the Shopify platform is $90.00 and an average annual revenue per merchant is $900,000. Shopify merchants can enjoy its platform features by creating a quick online store, getting paid quickly using the Shopify credit card processing service, and adding useful Shopify partner-created apps to enhance visibility and sales.

Many Shopify merchants have been relying heavily on SMS to re-engage their customers, send SMS alerts and marketing SMS messages, and rescue abandoned shopping carts.

SMS marketing works much better than email or paid ads as it has a 97% open rate and it gives users instant access to what is available for sale and to being notified of their order status. Other ways SMS messaging applications are used are through SMS royalty programs, pre-order and sold out alerts, reorder SMS messages, and SMS reminders.

For choosing an SMS platform that is suited best for a merchant, here are some tips that may help with making this tough decision:

Ease of operation

Find out how much time you need to invest every day to design and manage your SMS campaigns. Find an SMS platform that you can sign up for, spend a few minutes to set up, and start seeing results quickly without spending hours learning how to use the platform.

Automated campaigns

find a platform that offers proven automated campaigns so that you don’t spend more time with the platform rather than spending your time on more important things such as bringing in more businesses and relationships.

Time sensitive

Are you getting sales quickly or do you need to tweak the campaign many times over to see a sale?

Pricing

If you don’t have a large volume, the price does not make that much of a difference in the beginning. If you are sending 2000 msgs  a month, it really does not matter much if you pay $0.01 or $0.015 so long as you are generating good conversion. It is more important to know that you are getting good conversions than what it costs to send a single message.

Customer service

Most of automated platforms do not offer live customer service.
