We’ve taken years of expertise in SMS marketing and condensed it down into SMS marketing templates that not only make it easy for you to get started, but also show proven results for so many Recart clients.
We’ve got lots to cover so let’s jump straight in and take a look at the top 6 SMS flows that are tried, tested, and approved by the professionals.
It’s important to greet your customers and welcome them as SMS subscribers. Doing so sets a personal tone for your brand and provides a little insight into what sort of interactions your customer can expect from you.
There are a few ways to create a great Welcome Flow but one of our favorites is definitely the brand-building kind. Providing some brand history, company vision and educational content upfront fosters trust and loyalty. This works particularly well for beauty, health, and wellness brands where product understanding and a brand’s values play a large role in a customer’s purchase decisions.
Take a look at this welcome flow that does just that:
Exclusive Sales and Early Access
When a customer feels heard and special, you’ve got a foundation for a good, long-term relationship. This can be achieved through communications that offer exclusive offers, membership deals, and early access to new products and specials.
Customer Loyalty Boosters
Go even further with customer loyalty by creating a customer segment for your VIP customers based on their spend amount or any criteria that make them a VIP for your business. Plus, because you know these customers love your products or are big spenders, you can be sure a discount will go a long way and be appreciated.

Tactical Sales and Promotions
Everyone loves a holiday sale, a themed discount, or a special celebration. It’s important for businesses and brands not to miss out on these tactical opportunities as they are the perfect reason to offer your customers something exciting. Whether it’s something fun like National Love Your Pet Day or a well-known event like the Super Bowl – we’re confident these days can bring big wins for your revenue.
