In order to send invitations to this event to as many persons as possible the conventional means used is wedding invitation cards. Many persons though use bulk SMS to send invitations to their well wishers at the expense of invitation cards or even use cards sparingly. In this article we assess 3 major reasons why we at SmartSMS believe it’s a very good decision. These reasons are:
Cost Effectiveness: It is a fact that printing an invitation card for one person is far costlier than sending a message to one person. Today’s printing technology has gone sophisticated that an invitation must have designs and graphics to look good. With this comes extra cost. On the other hand sending messages to a person can cost as low as 1 NAIRA with all you have to do been just to register a bulk SMS account. Thus many have found that using bulk SMS for invitations is far more economical than use of wedding invitation cards.
Outreach: Because of the obvious low cost of using bulk SMS compared to printing invitation cards many persons can be reached at the same time. To get invitation cards across it is almost inevitable that you have to give it by hand to a person with many of these people not very close. With bulk SMS though you can get your invitation across from anywhere and they will get it. So it is possible to reach more persons through bulk SMS than through invitation cards.
Ease of Accessibility to information concerning the location: Most wedding I.Vs contains the location of the ceremony. Many people travelling down have to go with their invitation cards with them to remember the location. In some cases these well wishers may unwittingly forget to take the I.V along and therefore get stranded. But with our mobile phones always in our pocket it is very easy to assess the message and get the location at any time.
