Penguin Random House launched the “Bayview Crew” text community alongside the release of Karen M. McManus’s 3rd installment of her book series “One Of Us Is Lying.” The campaign served subscriber’s exclusive content like unpublished scenes and engaged subscribers through interactive character-related games. Their creative content marketing efforts helped foster a sense of community amongst their young adult readers and led to book sales and record engagement numbers.
Morning Brew leveraged SMS to engage event attendees at their Marketing Brew Summit: The Brief. The events team took advantage of Subtext’s scheduling feature to organize event communication prior to the event. This included sharing the schedule, session reminders, wifi passwords, and prompts for attendees to submit questions for speakers. During the event, whenever there were schedule changes or updates, the team was able to immediately alert attendees about the issue and that it would soon be fixed. Organizers and attendee’s alike were thankful to have up-to-date information at their fingertips.
Buzzfeed Shopping used Subtext to great effect during the holiday shopping rush. They often checked in with subscribers to better understand what products were on their holiday wish list.
