Sales is a delicate business, and knowing what to say at every stage is crucial.

We’ve shared some ideas before on how to write SMS messages for marketing.

While these tips are still relevant, we recognize the added challenge that comes with texting a lead with a call to action that asks them to hand over their money.

It may even seem contradictory to write your sales pitch like you’re talking to a friend, considering many people purposefully avoid asking friends for cash.

The following list of text templates is our solution for the pesky tone, timing, and topic questions that arise when you go to write and send a sales message.


First Touch Text Message Templates

A first touch text is, well, your first impression when speaking to a contact. That makes it extra important in the overall customer interaction cycle. 

Your first touch text should set expectations on what customers will receive from you, introduce your brand voice, and possibly invite the customer to contact you with questions or concerns.

Sales Texting Best Practices

I hope these sales text templates have given you some inspiration as you attract contacts and close deals. 

Before you hit “Send,” though, there are a few important best practices to keep in mind.

  • Be sure you have express consent to text your contacts. That means no buying phone numbers to text, and you should use opt-in methods like keywords and web forms to stay compliant with texting laws and regulations. Always include a clear way to opt out of your texts.
  • Be sure what you’re sending is intentional and valuable. Focus on texting helpful tips and opportunities your contacts will want to take advantage of, and avoid spammy “ACT NOW” language.
  • Keep your texts short. Whether you’re using 160-character SMS messages or 1600-character MMS formats, texts are best when they’re brief and to the point. Stick to the important details.
  • Personalize your texts. Did you know that 72% of consumers report that they will only interact with marketing messages if those messages are personalized to their specific interests? Personalization pays (literally).
