Why does my race need text marketing?
If you’re interested in growing your race, both email & text need to be a part of your marketing attack
The One-Two Punch
If your goal is to grow your race, we believe that the best approach is a strategic combination of email and text message marketing. Individually, both mediums offer several unique benefits, and cons. However, when you supplement your existing email campaigns with expertly timed text messages it allows you to maximize your database, and plug any holes in your marketing campaigns.
