Comparing SMS to Email

SMS

No internet is required SMS requires no internet which means you can reach your clients anytime and anywhere with mobile phone reception. Higher engagement levels SMS messages trigger banner notifications, alert sounds and more, to inform the user that they have a new message. Engagement levels are higher in SMS messages as it has been recorded that "on average we pick up our phones 58 times per day." - The Guardian, 2021 Character and length limit SMS messages are limited to 160 characters which allows you to keep your messages concise and encourages your audience to read the main points.

Email

More cost effective Most email services offer free accounts and let you bulk email for free. No character and length limit Unlike SMS, emails have no restrictions on lengths and character limits which means you can provide all information as needed. You can also include images and file attachments. Personalised fields Emails allow you to use merge tags without risk to the email size. Merge tags allow your emails to be more personalised and to grab the user's attention more easily.
