As summer approaches, you’ve got a great opportunity to catch your customers’ eyes with a festive 4th of July SMS message. Craft Independence Day texts that get attention with these templates.
When you think about the 4th of July, what do you think of? For most people, it’s barbecues, fireworks, and the American flag.
Us? We think of all that, too…plus an excellent opportunity to reach out to your customers and contacts with product launches, promotions, or even just a friendly message.
After all, holidays are a great time to build goodwill with your customers with a festive greeting or catch people’s attention for a timely announcement.
Not sure where to start when writing your 4th of July text? No worries–we’ve got your back with these templates you can use for inspiration (plus a few message-crafting tips and tricks).
Use these example messages to craft a memorable–and effective–4th of July text.
Now that you’ve got some examples to work from, let’s talk about what makes a great 4th of July text. Yes, it’s a simple thing to type up and send, but there are still a few rules to remember.
Although we know that the 4th of July is based on America’s fight for independence from Britain, that’s not necessarily a piece of information you need to put into your texts.
Just keep the tone light and celebratory–and, of course, patriotic. A “Happy 4th of July” or mention on Independence day is plenty.
If you go with a fun, festive voice for your text, be aware of any jokes you choose to make. You still want to sound professional, so keep it cheerful but not irreverent.
And remember, even though this holiday has its roots in politics, that’s not a good topic for (most) texts. Just stick to a light greeting and any special offers you might want to sare.
It sounds obvious, but we’ll still say it: Make it clear that you’re sending a text around the 4th of July. Avoid just referring to it as “the holiday” or vaguely referencing the summer season.
An SMS message only gives you 160 characters to work with. So, limit your text to a greeting and a mention of your sale, product launch, or announcement.
You’ll keep your audience’s attention better and encourage more engagement with any links you include.
For businesses looking to catch their customers’ eyes and build up a shining brand reputation, holiday texts are where it’s at.
The 4th of July, especially, is an American tradition that gets people excited to gather together and celebrate–so if you can tap into that joy with a well-timed text, it’s a brighter holiday for both you and your audience.
