The SMS campaign
In order to keep up with modern marketing trends and keep their loyal customers in the loop about the newly available hard-to-find craft beers, Bread & Barley decided to run an SMS marketing campaign. So they contacted us and we happily agreed to help the company take its customer service to another level.
The campaign is very simple. Visitors text the Keyword CRAFT to 33222 on their mobile phones and automatically become a member of Bread & Barley’s #CraftSoHard VIP club.
Bread & Barley sends out a mass text message whenever they tap a very rare, very delicious, very hard-to-find craft beer! Club members are notified before the general public, getting a chance to indulge in a wonderful aroma of craft beer before it sells out. Being in the know is the key to finding good craft beer in Southern California. And Bread & Barely knows how to do it right!
It’s only been 6 months since we started the campaign and Bread & Barley has managed to grow its contact list with thousands of beer loving subscribers in such a short time. But that’s not all. Each time the pub blasts out a text message informing its #CraftSoHard club members about a new craft beer, the sales skyrocket (ATTENTION!) within the first 2 hours. Pretty impressive, huh?
This is how SMS Marketing helps Bread & Barley engage with its customers and drive brand loyalty, staying ahead of the game in the highly competitive market.
It worked so well for Bread & Barley that they are now going to introduce a Text Messaging campaign for their newly opened, state-of-the art micro brewery; Arrow Lodge Brewing! Check it out at www.arrowlodgebrew.com
