Let’s get started. Unlike email and print media, SMS Text Messages are limited by the amount of space that can be used per SMS Text Message.
Each SMS Text Message is restricted to a maximum of 160 characters.
This is the size limit of mobile phone SMS technology itself, and not something that Law Ruler has done. Law Ruler will make this easy for you to comply with since it will not let you create a SMS Text that exceeds the 160 character limit.
What does 160 characters look like?
(the box below shows a sample of what 160 characters looks like)
For ease of use, we have included several SMS Text Message drip campaign templates for your use so you are ready to go out-of-the-box. SMS Text Message Drip Campaigns (Also known as SMS Text Marketing Campaigns) have been found to significantly increase a firm’s lead-to-case conversion ratio, and are suggested for all Law Ruler clients. It is a powerful feature to have Law Ruler Software send SMS Texts and follow up with each of your potential clients to nudge them forward automatically.
