SMS Reminders

When members book events with you, there's always the risk they won't show up no matter how important or cool the occasion.

No matter how exceptional you are as a service provider, clients will likely miss the occasional appointment, unless there are safeguards in place. One of the easiest and most efficient ways to prevent and reduce no-show appointments is to send clients a simple, automated SMS text reminder.

What are Text Message Reminders?

Text message reminders are text messages sent to provide them with reminders about upcoming events, appointments, deadlines, or important information. These reminders can be automated and scheduled using a text messaging platform like TxtSquad. Text message reminders offer a reliable and efficient way to deliver time-sensitive information, improve engagement, and ensure that recipients stay on track with their commitments and obligations.

We are using TxtSquad to message parents about lunch order reminders and internally to manage the School Lunch team. Text reminders have increased our engagement from 30% on email to over 90%! And the TxtSquad team provides amazing service!

Benefits of Sending Reminders through Text Messages

Text message reminders offer several benefits and are widely used across various industries. Here are some key features and advantages:

Timely Notifications

Text message reminders are delivered directly to recipients' mobile devices, ensuring that they receive important information promptly. This helps to reduce the risk of missed appointments, deadlines, or events


Since most people carry their mobile phones with them at all times, text message reminders offer a convenient way to receive and access important information on the go. Recipients can quickly review the reminder and take necessary actions without the need for additional devices or internet connectivity.

Increased Engagement and Response Rates

Text messages have high open and read rates, with studies showing that the majority of text messages are read within minutes of being received. This makes text message reminders highly effective in capturing recipients' attention and encouraging prompt action or response.


Text message reminders can be automated using scheduling tools or integrated with appointment or event management systems. This streamlines the process of sending reminders, saving time and effort compared to manual notifications.

Automation and Efficiency

Text message reminders can be customized and personalized, addressing recipients by their names and providing specific details relevant to their appointments or events. This personal touch enhances engagement and helps recipients connect with the reminder on a more individualized level.


Sending text message reminders is often more cost-effective than other forms of communication, such as phone calls or physical mail. It allows organizations to reach a large number of recipients at a relatively low cost, making it an attractive option for businesses and service providers.
