Marketing is one of the most powerful tools we can use to build better relationships with our clients!

The marketing function allows you to send personalised text messages to clients to help grow your business and enhance the client experience:

  • Send promotional offers for launches or services

  • Target lapsed/lost clients with offers to come back in

  • Request reviews from clients via Google My Business

  • Text next weeks clients e.g illness, change to rota

  • Wish happy birthday to next weeks clients

  • Text all clients. Let them know re Xmas hours, change of address etc


Clients page

This shows a summary of all the clients in that bucket e.g Recover lost clients. From here you can filter, de-select clients or once happy, click "Create SMS":

Compose your text

You choose what you say. Promotional offer? Thank you text? You decide! Longer messages will use 2 text messages which are both charged. You can even add your personalised Online booking link in. 

Messages cost a very competitive 7p+VAT per text meaning you can get lapsed clients in for just a few pennies!

That's it.... grow your business in less than 2 minutes!

What if your credits run out?

No worries! Slick has got your communications covered. When the account runs out of texts Slick will automatically purchase the 500 text bundle on your account.

If you are attempting to send more than 500 messages, multiples of 500 will be bought until you have enough to send out your message! For example, you are trying to send 800 messages and have 0 credits, 2 x 500 will be purchased.

Hint - You can opt out of this service if you would like. Just ask the Support team on the Chat Bubble!
