Working with leading mobile marketing company Txtlocal, Goal Soccer Centres are using SMS marketing to reach out to a predominantly male target audience of 20 to 60 year olds. The company found, through research, that this group are instantly reactive and less prone to forward planning, responding extremely well to campaign offers, monthly updates and discounts via their mobile phones. The research also found that this group were far more likely to use their smartphones to browse the internet.

The company feels that this could spark a national trend in the upward support of 5-a-side football.

Goal Soccer Centres, Martin Franklin said “Mobile marketing is the quickest way to send a quick turnaround campaign message to a large audience. Rather than cold calling which only achieves around a 40% connection. It’s made a huge difference to this business, and 5-a-side football is evidently becoming more popular.”

Txtlocal Managing Director, Darren Daws supports this view, ‘SMS is an excellent compliment to other marketing channels. We are seeing many organisations receiving excellent response rates like Goal Soccer Centres. The beauty of our online SMS service is that there are no real barriers to entry, anyone can literally be up and running within minutes.’
