SEATTLE, Oct. 26, 2016 – Planning a wedding is no easy task. From recruiting the perfect DJ, to securing a venue, to coordinating with clients and guest services, communication is key. Business text messaging is proving to be the most convenient and reliable channel to help manage all these conversations.
Zipwhip, a landline and toll free text message service, is finding success in the wedding industry by making engagement simple in order to streamline communication, increase attendance, and ultimately deliver the best “Big Day” experience ever. Zipwhip representatives attended the Wedding MBA conference in October, the theme of which was staying competitive in an increasingly tech-centric world. With text messaging being the most used and trusted feature on consumers’ personal mobile phone, texting is a competitive advantage for reaching your audience.
“The wedding market is made up of predominantly millennial brides, so all businesses should be texting with their clients to stay relevant,” Zipwhip Account Executive Natasha Gay said.
In the DJ space, Zipwhip enables audience participation by allowing guests to to text in song requests. The texts that are sent to the landline number are displayed on their computer, so the DJ can use the feedback to create a customized setlist. “One of the best things about Zipwhip is that businesses get to keep their existing number that customers know and love,” said a recent DJ user.
Zipwhip’s features include:
- Scheduled Texts for fitting, tasting, and viewing appointment reminders.
- Picture Messaging to send samples, inspiration, ideas, and floor maps.
- Group Text (BCC) to contact the whole wedding party at once for event changes.
- Keywords for guest RSVP and event directions.
Businesses are also integrating Zipwhip into social media platforms like Instagram–a popular tool for DJs and wedding vendors–to allow users to embed a “click-to-text” button in their profile. If the business has text-enabled their number with Zipwhip, customers can send them a message instantaneously.
