  • Integration of SMS by Connect and Zoho CRM allows businesses to communicate with customers in an effective manner. A business can send SMS or Voice calls to their customers. They can also schedule the messages so that they reach customers at appropriate times. Integration of SMS By Connect and Zoho CRM benefits businesses in the fplowing ways:
    • Build Brand Awareness – Through SMS By Connect and Zoho CRM integration, business can build customer loyalty by reminding customers about their services and products. They can also send them timely information about special offers and discounts through SMS or Voice calls. For example, if a food product company sends out an SMS about the launch of new products to all its customers on a particular day, this will help in building brand awareness among customers. Customers will be informed that this company has launched new products and will be encouraged to order these products. This will increase sales of the company. Similarly, if a bank sends out an SMS on credit cards to its customers telling them that there are some offers on interest rates on these cards which will expire in two weeks time, customers will be encouraged to make use of these offers before they expire. Thus, it increases sales of the credit cards. If a store sends out an SMS to its customers after six pm on Friday telling them that there is some discount on certain products for this weekend only, customers will rush to the store to avail these discounts before they expire. This way businesses can build brand awareness among their current customers as well as attract new customers through the use of SMS By Connect and Zoho CRM integration.
    • Track Customer Behavior - Businesses can keep track of customer behavior using SMS By Connect and Zoho CRM integration. They can analyze how many times a message has been read by a customer and how many times a customer clicked on a link within a message sent by the business. They can then take action based on this information. If a customer has not opened a particular message sent by a business even after several tries, this indicates that he does not want to receive any more messages from the business in future. In such cases, the business can take necessary steps to stop sending messages to this customer or can start sending him/her messages with discounts or offers to retain his/her loyalty. On the other hand if a customer opens a message sent by a business immediately without opening any other message received at the same time from another business, this indicates that he/she is interested in products or services offered by that business. In such cases businesses can take action accordingly to win over the customer. If a customer clicks on a link within a message sent by a business but does not do so again even after several attempts, this shows that he/she is not interested in products or services offered by that business. In such cases businesses should stop sending him/her any more messages through SMS By Connect and Zoho CRM integration.
