If you have thought about using SMS text messaging in your business but haven’t because you’re not sure if it will appeal to your target audience, you’re not alone. In fact, that’s a fair concern to have. What you might not realize is that, regardless of your industry, there are several creative ways you can utilize SMS text messaging for your business, no matter your market demographic.
While it may sound like a great idea, you may wonder if your customers will actually respond positively and make purchases with a simple text message. Well, we have data that will help you answer this question and make an educated decision on whether or not SMS text messaging will benefit your business.
Since the inception of our business, we have generated millions of dollars in new revenue for hundreds of businesses, and we’ve collected large amounts of data that provides valuable insight of consumers utilizing our platform. Along with the help of Facebook, we have looped in their data with ours and have produced a comprehensive analysis.
Our current user database shows strong consumer adoption spanning across generations and genders. We see healthy consumer purchasing behavior, mobile user adoption, education, and engagement across a diverse audience. In fact, consumer adoption of mobile text messaging appeals to more than just millennials, and it remains strong across different age groups. Consumers aged 25-54 represent 72% of our mobile consumer adoption, while Baby Boomers represent 18%, and Gen Z accounts for 10%.
We predict that the consumer adoption across Generation Z will increase significantly during the next few years as mobile continues to dominate the digital landscape. In a couple decades, you’ll see Millennials reach the Baby Boomer age of 55+, and by then, they will be the most indoctrinated generation. This means that we’re not too far off from Grandma making purchases through text messages without her grandchildren’s assistance!
Here is some additional information on our audience:

When you look at the conversion data across the multiple businesses utilizing our platform, it shows that there are strong yields for first-time buyers, repeat buyers, and new customer acquisition.
With the consistent rise of mobile popularity, mobile purchases will soon become highly adapted in the western world. Countries in the east, like China, are way ahead of us when it comes to mobile innovation, so it’s about time we start playing catch up. Like TechCrunch predicted 4 years ago, “America is finally discovering what Asia has known for years: mobile messaging is a commerce platform”.
In one of my previous blogs, I broke down 9 ways businesses can use text messaging for marketing, but its use cases do not end there. There are endless ways businesses can harness the power of mobile text messaging, whether it is building stronger relationships, selling products or services, or providing exceptional customer service. In fact, salespeople outperforming their peers are using social selling to close more deals.
Mobile technology appeals to a diverse population and resonates with consumers of every age. Businesses are searching high and low for ways to engage with their audience in an efficient and scalable way, and ReplyBuy is enabling hundreds of clients to do just that.
