Why P2P Texting is on the rise

Why P2P Texting is on the rise

What is Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Texting?

Peer-to-peer (P2P) texting is exactly what it sounds like; one person sending a text message to another, just as if you were sending a message to a family member or friend. However, this type of person to person texting can also be done at scale, where one person can personally send text messages to thousands of people per hour. 

How can you utilize this high-visibility channel? Simple – Sign up for a P2P text message service like RumbleUp! Our platform allows you to send text messages from your computer or from our mobile app to any audience, even those who have not opted-in. You can send standard text-only messages called SMS messages, messages containing multimedia attachments such as pictures or GIFs called MMS messages, and even made for TV quality videos with our award-winning Enhanced Video Texting service.

Why Does P2P Texting Outperform Mass Blast-Texting?

Texting is a personal communication channel. Texting is how we talk to our friends, family and coworkers. That’s why real humans texting back and forth with live texting software is the most effective way to achieve real results, whatever your goal. 

Peer-to-peer texting platforms like ours were created after seeing both the potential and flaws of traditional mass texting services. P2P texting makes it easy for you to reach large audiences with a personalized message on the channel they prefer most. Unlike mass texting that does not allow for back and forth conversations, RumbleUp enables you to rapidly send and receive messages at scale for meaningful, two-way personal engagement.

Simply put, P2P texting is the best method for sending messages people want to open and RumbleUp is the best P2P texting platform to use for it.

The visibility and response rate of P2P texting is unrivaled, with over 90% of texts read within the first 3 minutes and an average person taking only 90 seconds to respond. Collect valuable data from your audience in real-time and enhance your outreach through the power of human-driven texting.

Essentials for Compelling Message Template Creation

  1. Keep the language casual, like you are talking to a friend – humanized language helps facilitate more personal and genuine connection
  2. Use phrasing that reminds your audience that they can text back and encourage them to respond reply
  3. Include a multimedia attachment, such as a picture or GIF, or send an Enhanced Video Text
    1. People engage more with texts that include pictures or videos
    2. The inclusion of a visual element will increase your ability to communicate with genuine emotion and get your point across clearly
  4. Always tell your audience how to opt-out of receiving your messages
  5. Respond to people who reply to you; this is the most powerful aspect of P2P texting for developing genuine connections with people

There is a common misconception that only mass text messaging services offer the ability to send automated text messages. We understand the convenience of responding with a click of a button, so we have developed tools like our Rapid Respond and Tap-Then-Send Response to allow you to send personalized, humanized automated texts with one click.
