Case Study, SMS - A Simple yet High ROI (Return on Investment) Tool
Assuming you have 100 customers who had already bought from you and you are doing a special promotion for "Product A" which has a standard selling price of $100. Your promotion is about a special 10% discount off for online purchases using a special generated discount code via webShaper e-commerce.
Assume your Gross Profit (GP) is 20% and you have chosen to give a special 10% discount.
Your Gross Profit (After Discount) per "Product A" sold?
$100 x 10% = $10
100 SMS x $0.10 cents = $10
Volume of Successful Transaction needed to cover the SMS Cost
1 customer purchase will earn you $10 (after the special discount)
2 customers purchases will earn you $20 (after the special discount)
The list continues...
You only need to achieve a 1% CR(Conversion Rate) to cover your cost. Anything more than that will be your Gross Profit.
Judging from the fact that the customer who has purchased from you is very more likely to buy from you again. This is Permission Marketing works at its best. Nothing beats SMS when it comes to cost-effectiveness and deliverability. Realizing this tremendous value, Neowave has built this feature so our customers can fully benefit from the technology that can push up the average revenue per customer as a result of repetitive sales.
