What Is First-Party Data? How Does It Benefit Brands?

While short codes used to be shared among various organizations, recent shifts in the cellular industry have led to the banning of shared short codes. Having a dedicated short code helps prevent message spam and gives brands full control over the content shared through their number. You have two choices when it comes to short codes for SMS and MMS marketing. Both offer the same functionality and are used as a dedicated short code unique to your brand:

Are There Different Kinds of Short Codes for SMS & MMS?

How Do You Get a
Dedicated Short Code?

To get a dedicated short code, you must first fill out applications
with cellular carriers. They’ll want to know your intended use and
verify that everything on your application is accurate. The approval process can take up to six to eight weeks. Short codes are leased through the U.S. Short Code Administration. TapOnIt can take
care of this whole process for you.

Know Your Parties: The Differences
Between Data Types

Zero-party data is collected directly from the consumer through things like surveys or profile entries. First-party data is collected through channels overseen personally by your brand or marketing provider. Second-party data comes from another party, such as a publisher sharing consumer information with its advertisers. Third-party data comes from an outside source (such as cookies on a website) without any direct relationship to the user. Naturally, the quality and reliability of the data collected directly from customers are more consistent than data collected from outside sources.

Reaching the Right Audience to
Deliver Visible Results

Once you begin collecting first-party data, you can create customer profiles that allow you to examine their behavior and craft customized messages to improve customer retention. Personalizing messages makes consumers more likely to make a purchase or remain loyal to your brand. SMS and MMS marketing data collection allows brands to enhance customer engagement and the effectiveness of their digital marketing campaigns. TapOnIt’s Smart Audience Builder can help you segment and target your audience to ensure the right messages reach the right people to deliver measurable results.

Why Are Text Message Marketing Platforms
on the Rise?

Recent research indicates the value of text message marketing platforms is expected to rise. Consumers are more likely to open and respond to text messages than phone calls or emails. Text message marketing has a near-perfect open rate, meaning the majority of your customers who have opted to receive your texts will open them. Many of them will go beyond merely looking at them to click on the links in your text messages, especially when paired with the power of images in an MMS. Text message marketing statistics speak for themselves. More than half of today’s consumers prefer text messaging with their favorite brands. Nearly 99% of these text messages are opened, with 90% of them being opened within three minutes of receiving them. Almost 80% of consumers respond better to text messages over other forms of marketing. You can’t afford to ignore the growing momentum of text message marketing for businesses of all sizes and industries!
