SMS is one of the most effective channels you can use to reach out to your customers. According to a number of studies, SMSes to prospects have open and response rates as high as 98% and 45% respectively—compared to corresponding figures of 20% and 6% for email.
SMS works faster than email and it’s more effective in eliciting a response; it’s also less intrusive than a phone call. Which is why Freshsales now lets you SMS your prospects, without leaving the CRM.
