Are you running a text message marketing campaign for your brand? Have you ever wondered how many other brands are running text message marketing campaigns as well? According to Chief Marketer, if you’re running a text message marketing campaign, you’re in the minority, but the percentage of brands running text message marketing campaigns is quickly growing year over year.In a recent survey done by Chief Marketer, 20.8% of marketers ran a text message marketing campaign in 2012, as you can see below in the nice little chart.
While 20.8% doesn’t seem like a big number (it really isn’t), what is interesting is the amount of marketers that were running text message marketing campaigns the year before in 2012. According to the E-tailing Group, only 7% of marketers were running a text message marketing campaign during 2011, as you can see in the equally nice little chart below. That’s a 197% increase in marketers running text messaging campaigns in only the span of one year!
