Tiny text messages can boost traffic, brand, loyalty and sales

Tim Sherwin, executive vice president and co-founder of CardinalCommerce, will present the benefits of text message marketing and discuss how to market to text-savvy consumers at the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition.

Text messaging enables the most intimate marketing connection between merchant and consumer, and when leveraged effectively can drive consumers to mobile commerce sites and apps, e-commerce sites, and stores, while also increasing customer loyalty and sales, says Tim Sherwin, executive vice president and co-founder of CardinalCommerce Corp., an e-commerce and m-commerce technology provider.
