The new suite more tightly integrates SMS/MMS into Sendlane’s platform, giving eCommerce marketers a wider array of tools for engaging shoppers
Sendlane, a customer experience-focused marketing automation solution for eCommerce brands, has upgraded its suite of SMS/MMS campaign management tools. The new suite is tightly integrated with Sendlane’s platform and includes a robust set of tools for coordinating, communicating and tracking SMS and MMS-based campaigns to shoppers.
Email marketing continues to be the dominant form of digital campaigns, but SMS (for texting) and MMS (for sending multimedia messages via text) have become more important in the past few years as conversational marketing becomes more prevalent. Most B2C marketers today are seeing a direct increase in revenue and LTV of customers when they use email and SMS/MMS together. In fact, nearly a quarter of eCommerce marketers responding to a recent Sendlane survey said merchants should incorporate SMS and MMS into their marketing campaign mix in 2022.

Sendlane’s new SMS/MMS suite includes a variety of advanced features. For example, marketers can now use Sendlane to send bulk messages via SMS and MMS. They can also add automatic tracking, personalization, images and emojis to SMS and MMS messages along with automatic link shortening. A two-way reply center allows marketers to communicate with customers who respond to SMS/MMS messages, and all SMS/MMS campaigns and communications can be recorded, tracked and viewed for up to 30 days in a dedicated space in the Sendlane platform.
The new SMS/MMS suite is available to Sendlane customers immediately in a usage-based pricing model. More info about the tools and how eCommerce marketers can use them to create and manage compelling SMS and MMS-based campaigns can be found here.
