As a sales leader, you know how hard it is to get people’s attention. You’re competing for a constantly dwindling resource – not your audience’s money or space or time, but their attention. Even when you have perfect product-market fit and know that your leads want the solutions you offer, you have to beat out your competitor’s subject lines, Facebook posts of cute babies, and your prospect’s urgent to-do list to get a little face time (or screen time).
But, while everyone and their mother’s startup is using email and phone to get in touch with your prospects, you’re looking for another way. That’s why you’re here.

In fact, while email and voicemail have single digit response rates, text messaging has a 98% read rate and a 35% to 45% response rate.
