DeKalb, IL, United States, 2011/06/28 - Christy Burns, Owner of Salon Suite, thrilled with Instant Response to Text Messages sent to Customers - HomepagesDirectories.com.
Salon Suite no longer has any Saturday appointments available in July, according to owner Christy Burns. This week, Christy sent out a text blast to inform her customers about which dates she would be unavailable during on-site bridal parties.
“I was amazed by the rapid response I got from my customers,” said Christy. All of her Saturday openings were booked solid only an hour after Christy sent her first text. People who texted CHRISTY to 36000 received an exclusive offer of 20% off any retail product. She reported receiving a "terrific response" from her initial offer. “It was so easy to get started. My clients usually make last-minute appointments with me, but HomePage’s Text Marketing service has helped keep my schedule full.”
“I had 40 people opt-in to my list almost immediately thanks to the in-store signs and displays featuring my text code which were provided by HomePages, and lots of my customers were complimenting me about how cool it was to be able to instantly receive helpful information. Also, several people signed up for my text list didn’t even know I did on-site bridal parties. I’ve had a lot of people wanting to book me for on-site bridal parties that didn’t know I offered this service until I started sending out text messages,” said Christy.
