Orbitz introduced the OrbitzTLC Alerts to its customers as part of its SMS marketing campaign through a radio source. The company even concluded that even one-time promotions can generate long-term customer engagement, based on the number of requests for the promo code and additional opt-ins.
JCPenney also made use of an one-day SMS marketing campaign and were able to reach out to their customers through opt-ins and increased their sales. The text also included a link to their mobile website, which would allow users to shop for Easter clothing. It was a great way to get the word out.
