    Text Message Marketing

    Text Message Marketing

    Today on Video Marketing Madness – Text Message Marketing. Ray shares how he’s growing his business with text messaging.



    First of all, be sure to get Dr. Ben Atkins’ How-To book and videos.



    For his escape room business, Ray has 5000 phone numbers, and the outgoing campaigns go through Twilio. He got a 90% open rate! Text message marketing is big for restaurants; send out a coupon on slow nights, for instance. Also significant for chiropractors, dentists, and movie theatres. Ray has it set up so he and his employees can start campaigns through their phones. He’s building his list with lobby posters, email campaigns, cards, videos, Spotify ads, and the website. The message is text “Escape” to 00000 to get $5 off the next visit.

    Mobile Phones for Pro Video

    Mobile Phones for Pro Video

    Today on Video Marketing Madness – Mobile Phones for Pro Video. Ray makes the case for shooting video on your smartphone.



    Ray uses his iPhone in-studio for everything and in the field for quick interviews. The set-up is super quick and it’s digital HD. But the aperture is small, so make sure you have good lighting. If you don’t have a cameraman with you (and who does these days), smartphones give you the control you need, especially if you have the FiLMiC Pro app - https://www.filmicpro.com/ - Ninja tip - The DoubleTake app from FiLMiC Pro will allow you to use all the different lenses on the iPhone at one time - https://www.filmicpro.com/doubletake-by-filmic-pro/
