In this day and age, customers do not want the hassle of printing coupons from a dealership’s website or carrying physical coupons around. Email campaigns are proving less effective for marketing purposes than they once were, as inboxes are besieged with emails and promotional messages are likely to end up lost in a spam folder.

And TEXTcoupons will make your life and your team’s life easier, as well, with the following capabilities:
- Every interaction is archived permanently
