Workdays can be crazy. Did you know that incorporating SMS and text messages into your business communications can create some shortcuts in the rat race? When you have text message templates set and ready to use, your workday becomes more methodical and well-organized.
Some things to keep in mind while creating text message templates are to be specific and personal. Just because you are using a template, doesn’t mean you can’t use the recipient’s name. Below, you will find 11 text message templates for better business interactions.
Text Message Templates for Your Employees
Communicating clearly with your employees can be difficult, especially if you have a large company. Email is not always reliably checked in a timely manner throughout the workday. Due to this, scheduling can be a little tricky. Messaging can be used to set meetings with the whole staff, a small group of your staff, or even one on one meetings.
Here are 3 Text Message Templates for communicating with your employees:
Template 1: “Staff meeting is set for [date and time} please let me know today if you have any conflicts.”
Template 2: “Hello [red team], how is [date and time] for a project update meeting?”
Template 3: “Hi [name], it’s time for your annual evaluation. Are you free [date and time] to come in and discuss this further?”
Text Message Templates for Lead Conversion Calls
Most people are not pleased when their day is interrupted by sales calls. However, your business relies on new customers; so how are you going to reach out to leads and ensure good results? Texting these people ahead of time and setting up a sales call with them can increase your conversion rate. Once you have had the conversation with them, it’s good practice to send a follow-up text as well.
