A long-awaited feature – the option to send emojis in your text messages! We finally have to offer the full range of emojis in any type of text message we at CartBoss offer.
What are Emojis?
An emoji is a pictogram or smiley embedded in the text and used in emails, websites, and text messages. The primary function of emojis is to add emotional explanations otherwise not present in the basic plain text.
Some examples of emojis are 😂, 😃, 🌦️, 🚗, 📞, 🎉, ❤️.
They are extremely popular to use, grabbing attention, emphasizing emotions, and giving the whole text a personal touch.
How to use Emojis in CartBoss?
CartBoss now offers to add emojis to your text messages. Because you can not edit the text of the pre-prepared text messages, you need to create a new one – a custom text message.
If you want to use the same text as one from the pre-prepared ones, copy the text from it and add the emojis you want to add. Simple as that.
We recommend trying to write your custom ones, so your messages are even more personalized based on your website and brand. Adding emojis to these kinds of text messages can be extremely beneficial for the CTR and ROI rates.
To add an emoji to the content of the text message, just select it in the editor – that is it.
What to be careful about?
Emojis take more characters in the text message as regular characters. They take much more space in the length of the message, and since each text message has a limitation of characters, you can all of a sudden be sending 3 messages instead of one.
That is why we show the estimated number of text messages of the one you want to send is needed. That way, you can decide based on the number of messages needed if this structured text message is the perfect fit.
Why use Emojis?
The main goal of using emojis in your text messages is to grab the recipient’s attention. The same as with emails. Just that with text messages, the amount of text sent is usually a short 2 sentence offer.
A popular idea is to show an emoji that grabs the attention to the link in the text message where the recipients can collect their offer.
Another one is that you add emojis right at the beginning of the message so that it gets the most possible attention. This way, the open rate, the click-through rate, and the number of daily orders get better.
Change the emojis once in a while based on the season or the specific holiday, like Christmas or Valentine’s day. There is a large amount of emojis available, suited for any occasion.
Personalize your text messages and stand out as much as possible!
