What are SMS Auto-Responders?
Similar to email auto-responders, SMS Auto-Responders allow you to send an automated response via text message as soon as a prospect utilizes your text for information service provided by Smart Lead Capture. Here are a few examples of SMS Auto-Responder messages:

Marketing via text message (SMS) is one of the smartest, most effective options available. In today’s consumer environment, where more than 73% of cell phone users send and receive SMS and MMS messages, text messaging is flat out better than email. Here’s why:
Text response times trump email response times nearly every time. Take this statistic from CITA.org – It take the average person 90 minutes to respond to an email, but just 90 seconds to respond to a text message.
Too many emails end up unopened and unread, lost to the spam or trash folder – some 88%, in fact. But over 97% of SMS messages are opened, 93% of which are read within 3 minutes of receipt.
There is no better or more powerful tool for capturing leads and potential clients than SMS and MMS (multimedia message service) messaging. And Smart Lead Capture makes it all unthinkably easy.
