Customers prefer texting

Texting is the highest rated contact method for customer satisfaction compared to all other communication channels.  According to a study by Dynamark, 98% of text messages are read, compared to only 22% of emails that are sent.  Additionally, 95% of texts will be read within 3 minutes of being sent! (Forbes)

Texting doesn’t just make communication better – it builds retention.

In a recent J.D. Power Customer Service Index study, only half of the customers who were contacted by phone said they would return – but for those who received texts, that rate jumped to two-thirds.
