And the bit about being able to automate these processes? Well, I can only say it is as magical as a charm straight out of Hermione’s spellbook.

Don't Forget to Dream

Long ago, when I was fresh on the blogging scene, I started a small e-commerce business with my buddy, who was equally clueless about marketing strategies as I was. One night, over a ridiculously delicious pizza (Yes! I do have a thing for pizzas), I stumbled upon an article about SMS marketing. I remember being as skeptical as you might be reading this, but I decided to jump in headfirst and use it as my marketing wand. The results were beyond staggering. The ROI was through the roof, and our customer engagement improved tremendously. Two years into the business, and those late-night remorseless pizza binges are now celebratory feasts. So, with you, I share this nugget from my journey, following the old adage: Dream, Believe, and Achieve.

In Conclusion

As we cross this delightful crossroad, understanding that SMS/WhatsApp marketing is far from being a thing of noughts, but rather a thriving strategy full of potential and promise, there's a lesson to be learned here. Marketing isn't always about adopting the newest, shiniest strategies. Sometimes, it's about looking back with a fresh perspective and leveraging the most humble tools for maximum impact. So, next time you think of ways to power up your marketing game, remember, old is gold. And in this case, that gold is delivered right to your customer's pockets.
