Jack in the Box discovered that coupon redemption rates were 3-5 times higher when the fast-food chain used mobile text marketing, as opposed to traditional email marketing. The restaurant offered 2 free tacos to any customer who opted in and subscribed to their texts.
Jack in the Box further found that 26% of the consumers that received mobile text promotions attributed their in-store purchases to those texts; 32% of mobile text recipients attributed their visit to the restaurant on text-message advertising; and 21% of mobile text recipients recommended Jack in the Box to another person based on text promotions they received.
Similarly, Bulmers Irish Cider in the UK used mobile text marketing simply to make their targeted audience aware of Bulmers’ locations in an attempt to bring in more foot traffic to their individual pubs. Over the course of 4 weeks, Bulmers sent approximately 77,000 texts to males between the ages of 18 and 34. At the end of the promotion, their data showed that about 75% of those who were texted visited a Bulmers pub because of the SMS message. After the promotional texts were sent, Bulmers sent a follow-up survey to the recipients, finding that 53% of those who received the first text remembered seeing it. This alone is evidence that people are more likely to open and read text messages than they are any other form of traditional marketing.
