Sugarbakers Boutique in Lena, IL signed on with AMP’s CloseBy® Text Marketing Program in March of 2021. Sugarbakers is a home decor and gift boutique with attached wine bar. They carry a wide range of products and host wine tasting and live music events. An OPTIMA™ customer since 2018, CloseBy® Text was the natural next step to expand Sugarbakers Boutique’s advertising efforts.
CloseBy® Text is an incredibly effective way to get your best deals, promotions, and announcements right at the fingertips of your loyal customers. The average smart phone user checks their phone 150 times every day and most text messages are read within 3 minutes. CloseBy® Text brings attention to your latest announcement by sending a text message that can be scheduled in advance or created as a last minute promotion. With CloseBy®, your dedicated team of account managers will not only assist you with sending texts out, but also help brainstorm ideas and share best practices for text marketing.
Over the past 3 months, Sugarbakers Boutique has seen great success with CloseBy® Text and their list has grown to 68 total contacts. They use their text program to push sales, advertise live music events, and much more.
Julie Servatius, the owner of Sugarbakers Boutique, said this about CloseBy® Text Marketing:
“We started with the CloseBy® Text Marketing program back in March of this year. I had been looking for something that would help bring more of my repeat customers back through the door. We had a handful of our best customers who were not on Facebook, so they would miss all of our specials, promos, and events being held. I knew by joining the text program it would solve that issue, and it has done exactly that! We receive lots of positive feedback from our customers on how they enjoy our messages. They really love how they will now never miss a thing at Sugarbakers. We hold lots of live music and events on the weekends, and we really utilize the text program for reminders. The CloseBy® Text Marketing program has been a great addition to our business, and to our customers!”
