Appointment Reminders Using Text Messaging

SMS Text Message Appointment Reminders

Any business in the San Francisco area that relies on customer appointments or reservations for revenue can benefit from SMS appointment reminders. Unlike automated phone calls, which can be annoying to the receiver, text message appointment reminders are non-intrusive, yet personal at the same time.

If you are a business with a computer and internet access, you can use SMS appointment reminders to keep up with your clients, patients and customers in an easy, yet very effective way. Mobile use is surging in the U.S., and text messages have a much greater open rate than email. Over 90% of text messages are opened and read within 4 minutes of being sent, so your reminder is almost guaranteed to be read. Unlike a phone call, the receiver does not have to stop whatever they are doing to answer you. A text message is discreet and the receiver can open and read it while they are doing something else.

Whatever your business is, whether you own a day spa, a doctor’s office, dental office, automotive repair shop or hair salon, SMS appointment reminders can work for you. If your business depends on people keeping their appointments, you know how important appointment reminders can be. People forget appointments all the time, or they figure you won’t care too much if they don’t show up. SMS appointment reminders show them that you care and that you expect to see them.

SMS appointment reminders are easy to set up and execute. It is easily the most cost effective way to keep your appointments full and the business busy. They can be customized as well. For example, if you would like to receive word back from your clients that they are either planning to be there or need to cancel, the SMS appointment reminder can be set to allow them to respond with either answer. If they respond that they cannot keep the appointment, you have the option to then call them to reschedule.

Businesses that also depend on repeat customers, such as salons, can also utilize appointment reminders to remind clients that their next treatment or service is due, along with the number to call so that they can easily call you to schedule an appointment.
