Six good reasons to use email to SMS and SMS to email

Offer your customers SMS support

SMS to email makes it easy for customers to get in touch with customer service via an SMS, after which customer service can reply to the message directly in their email inbox. When customer service responds, the message is converted back into an SMS that is sent to the customer’s device.

Instant delivery

Email to SMS allows for almost instant delivery of messages, ensuring that recipients receive time-critical information quickly. This is particularly valuable for urgent matters that require immediate attention.

High opening rates

SMS messages have significantly higher open rates compared to emails, and most SMS messages are read within minutes of receipt. Using email to SMS ensures that your message is seen and understood by the recipient immediately.

Consolidated inbox

Email-to-SMS allows communication to be managed via one email platform, eliminating the need to switch between multiple programs. This streamlines processes and makes it easier for users to manage all their messages in one place.

Send SMS messages easily

Via email to SMS, it is possible to send handheld SMS messages to customers directly from the email inbox. There is therefore no need to log into a system to send SMS messages.

Use with caution

Powerful tool to get the attention of the users

Unlike most other marketing channels, SMS marketing is able to capture the attention of the users here and now. That also means that there are a number of best practices that must be followed in order to maximize the effectiveness of the SMS campaigns.

It is paramount that you have obtained permissions from the users and that personal data is handled in accordance to the rules that apply in your area. Furthermore, it is also paramount that the message clearly states how users can unsubscribe from your SMS list, e.g. “Send STOP to 1234 to unsubscribe”.

Ordering a taxi by SMS

The Danish taxi company 4x27 uses SMS to email and email to SMS for taxi bookings and internal communication with taxi drivers.

The setup allows customers to order a taxi simply by sending a text message to +4527272727 with their address in the text field, which is then converted into an email sent to the booking office’s inbox. The booking office can send back an email shortly afterwards, which is converted into an SMS notifying the customer that a taxi is on its way.

Rapid response on important cases

Banks, insurance companies and lawyers can quickly get customers to respond to a message if they need critical information from them or want to keep them updated on an important case. Because it’s handled directly from the inbox, it’s quick to write the message and easy to keep track of the correspondence.

Smooth management of craftsman appointments

The SaaS company Minuba has integrated an SMS service into their platform, which allows craftsmen to keep their customers updated on when they are coming by, as well as giving customers the opportunity to write back if the time does not fit them. This is all handled through the system’s messaging/email system, which is sent as SMS messages to customers and converted back to a message in the system when the customer responds.
