Texting is priced out based upon “credits” and we calculate that in the following way-
- Standard texts (SMS or Short Message Service)
- Photo texts (MMS or Multimedia Messaging Service)
- Video texts (MMS or Multimedia Messaging Service)
Video texts are charged as three text messages. Each SMS is limited to 160 characters. If the text goes beyond this limit, the text may be split into two or more messages.
How Many Text Credits Will You Need?
The kind of account you will need to be based upon how much business you do or intend to do. Important things to calculate are how many campaigns you assign, how many leads you are buying and how many loans you are closing.
The average number of texts per Nurture Campaign is 6 texts
- 4 borrower/business contact and
- 2 to the referral agent
Lead Generation Texting
Depending on the aggressiveness of the campaign you assign to your online leads, these numbers can vary greatly as well as the length of time it takes for your lead to return your call or texts. There are 10-12 texts built into lead gen campaigns, so verifying which will work for you will help determine which plan is best.
