Product Updates – Marketing with Welcomemat’s FlexText 

Have you deployed Welcomemat’s FlexText™ SMS and email platform?

Welcomemat and Micrologic have engineered FlexText, an SMS and email program designed to deliver automated messages that re-capture declining credit cards and increase stickiness of unlimited members.  

Several other campaigns have recently launched and are available as part of the FlexText™ program  – these include:

  • refer-a-friend
  • win-back campaigns for lost unlimited members
  • Google Review
  • Birthday Club
  • OIL change reminder service for lube customers
  • …and more

CHURN Reduction. Prompted by messages sent by FlexText, customers are notified when their credit card is expiring and are informed on how to update their information either through a website like Micrologic’s portal or at the site. We are pleased to announce that using the FlexText SMS and email platform, we can now track how many credit cards are updated so you can see a pure return on the effort.   

Have you ever wondered how to increase your number of memberships? Look no further than FlexText —  designed to ensure your membership numbers grow.  

Using your kiosk or POS screen, you can opt in members and begin communicating with them to grow revenue. FlexText is a key tool in knowing your customers and promoting your business efficiently.     

Did you know?  

The first 30 days after someone becomes an unlimited car wash member are the most VITAL in certifying stickiness and creating habits. Welcomemat’s “Welcome New VIP” SMS and email campaign is designed to help create habits – with a habit created, your chance of keeping a new member for the next 11 months increases by 40%.   

 FlexText doesn’t only send SMS – it uses email along with SMS to lift readership and mitigate SMS opt-outs. This killer combination doubles the chance of a customer being notified, increasing your chance of gaining or keeping a new member.  

Some examples of FlexText campaigns which implement this email/SMS duo are our “Come Back Win Back” and “Google Review with Stars” campaigns.
