What SMS Masterminds Licensees Are Saying On Yelp

“I have been an active Licensee of SMS Masterminds for about 5 months now. The experience has been really great. I have owned and operated my own digital marketing agencies for nearly 10 years now, and I wanted to offer an additional service line for my agency, and I felt mobile-driven customer loyalty marketing was the best choice. Long story short, what I was sold when I decided to take the plunge as a licensee is exactly what I got. Nothing was misrepresented in any way, and in fact I have found they have over-delivered on what was promised in terms of support for my agency. We hit the ground running and have done very well already in the short time we've been offering this CLS as one of our primary service lines.

One particular strength, in terms of support, for SMS Masterminds has been their sales and marketing support. There is nothing like it in this industry, and I have done my homework! Charles and Dave M at SMS HQ are awesome to work with. Dave M, who is in charge of supporting the sales efforts of licensees in their markets, has gone to great lengths to provide us with exactly what we need (as I have found out in the field) to maximize our client acquisition rate.

The second strength is technical support. In short, I have never had an issue pop up on the technical/software side that has not been resolved quickly, always the same day, and typically within a few mins on the phone with their support department - shout out to Skyla, Josh, Kenny, and the rest of the crew! Keep up the good work, guys!

And lastly, their sales support with the appointment setting that comes with your territory is really great. Also nothing like it in this industry. They have an awesome call center, and deliver quality appointments for you, in your market, which you can throttle up or down depending on your availability. And the call center director, Anji R is really great to work with.”

“Every day I work to grow my business as an SMS licensee, I feel more and more confident in my decision to "take the leap" and come on board with them. The support from the tech team, the sales lead team, and most recently, the addition of Dave M, a long-time uber-successful licensee himself, as the "Czar of Sales" to support all of us in our efforts to grow our business, is so far beyond anything I could have imagined. I am growing and building my own business, but I am not alone. And the recent changes to include a Universal Pricing Plan, with the 5 Pillar Sales Presentation have been game changers for me. Finally got it all together on my end, and just closed on a new client who was the first to experience my new and improved presentation. I know many more are yet to come!”

– Linda R. in Myrtle Beach, SC on 7/19/2018


“I am passionate about leveraging cutting edge digital marketing technology to help entrepreneurs realize their dreams of building wealth, let my team and I help you build a great business!”
– Charles Gerencser, Executive GM, SMS Masterminds

Transcript

[Background Music] If 80% of your business comes from 20% of your customers, what are you doing to bring in those customers more often? If you could draw those customers in for one or two additional visits, what would that mean to your bottom line? When you partner with us and implement our loyalty marketing service, you will soon find out. Picture this. A customer comes into your business and joins your loyalty marketing program by simply entering their cell phone number into your touch screen loyalty kiosk. The system then sends them a text message welcoming them and giving them an exclusive VIP only offer as a thank you. It’s that easy. Fast forward a week and now it’s time to invite those customers back in for another visit. A text message is sent out and is received by all your loyal customers. “Today only”. Show this exclusive text message to get today’s VIP offer. Now, watch your customers roll in, cell phones in hand, ready to redeem that amazing deal. So, if you’re looking for a trackable marketing method that provides strong and consistent return of investment, with an integrated, hands-on level of service, then it’s time to partner with us and implement the most impactful loyalty marketing solution around.
