How to Write the Perfect 4th of July SMS

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.

1. Keep it light and friendly

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.

2. Be polite 

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.

3. Stay centered on the holiday 

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.

4. Keep it short and sweet 

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.

The Final Word on 4th of July SMS Messages

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.
