There are many facets to running an effective and profitable business and for those service related businesses that are defined by customer meetings and appointments the integration of push notification appointment reminders is in fact a digital marketing component of business execution that can be put to use within any company which will in turn have a direct impact on revenue generation.
There is nothing more annoying than product demonstrators, salesmen, delivery drivers and other company employees not making effective use of appointment reminder systems and therefore turning up for meetings only to find out that the customers is not at their places of residences or the other business representative is not in their office space in order to make good on the meeting appointment that had been planned and agreed upon by both parties.
This leaves the company making the appointment with downtime for the employee in question which has a direct impact on any given revenue generation parameters (with revenues being tied directly to sales and sales being linked to the number of meetings or product demonstrations that take place).
The way around this of course is if the person in question is not able to make the appointment that they would simply let the company know about their changes in circumstance; it may of course be the case that they simply have not remembered about the appointment. So let’s take both scenarios into consideration for argument’s sake.
In the instance where the customer simply has forgotten about the meeting in question; it would be so convenient if a mobile phone based message could be sent direct to their handset in order to remind them of the upcoming meeting; this will provide the customer with the opportunity to rearrange meeting times as appropriate.
The point raised above is indeed a very important one as most appointment reminder systems often come with the “DO NOT REPLY” warning and with the NowRemind.com platform allowing customers to send messages direct to the company – this serves to have a major positive impact on business development operations within a company.
In many cases the customer does actually remember about the meeting but; for certain reasons they have to unexpectedly leave to be somewhere else; they would like to be able to get in touch with the company to inform them but have no quick viable way to do so – as in so many circumstances even though they have an appointment reminder they are not able to respond to it.
However as mentioned above the NowRemind.com appointment reminder system hands the customer with the ability to message directly back into the company so that meetings are able to be rearranged as appropriate according to mutually convenient time openings.
And in closing, one point that should be mentioned that in fact can be indeed used to ramp up any company’s direct marketing execution plans is that push notification direct marketing can be built into the organisation’s business development strategy as every client that has a meeting booked and confirmed via the system will be a candidate that can be followed up with in order keep individuals up to date in terms of products and services news.
