How texting can work in your venue
Retail Shops

Let's talk shop.

Operating a retail business comes with a unique set of challenges. For small and locally-owned stores, the challenges are even greater: we've all seen promising mom-and-pop stores pop up one month and disappear the next.

How can you attract more customers, connect with them, and keep them coming back? All the while operating on a tight budget?

  • Bring customers back to your store with exclusive text coupons
  • Raven Books Coupon: Show this text to the cashier for 15% your next purchase. Applies to new & used items. Exp 7/29
  • Bring customers back by notifying them about new arrivals with text alerts
  • Gamer's Goods Alert! Diablo III was released today and we've stocked up! Pick up your copy today for $5 off any other game.
