Think if they were on the subway, waiting in line for lunch, or in the sitting room at the dentist bored out of their minds. That number goes up quite a lot.
These days people are on their phones 24/7. But, they’re inundated with information.
Their inboxes are flooded. And with the rising cost of acquisition — and Amazon always there as a ready alternative for consumers — it’s hard to get your message out there and to be heard. Not to mention drive sales for your online store.
So, how do you skip the line, and get ahead of your competition?
Introducing Privy Text. The easiest way to turn text messaging into your #1 sales channel.
We’re going to assume you’ve seen the stats about text message open rates. (They’re ridiculous, by the way. 90%+ or higher 😮.)
And maybe you’ve heard that people are super quick to open text messages too. On average, it takes a shopper 3 minutes according to the Unofficial Shopify Podcast. Compare that to email where your message can sit in someone’s inbox for days.

That’s why we created the 3 essential recipes you need to get started with text messaging for ecommerce. And oh by the way, these are super easy to set up in Privy too.
