The Power of Compliant SMS Marketing for Cannabis Dispensaries

According to LeafBuyer Technologies, more than 90% of people open their text messages within minutes of receiving the text. Given the restrictions in cannabis marketing on most advertising platforms, high open rates make texting the most impactful channel to engage your cannabis customers. Unlike other tactics, SMS marketing has proven to deliver immediate results for dispensaries.

How immediate? Our partner LeafBuyer Technologies, a leading cannabis industry messaging platform, found that clients who send MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) texts see a 15-25% increase in same-day foot traffic.

Data-Driven Cannabis Text Marketing

 The secret behind these incredible results is a combination of 4 factors: 

  • High Open Rates
  • Nuanced Targeting
  • Auto-Connect Campaigns
  • Data-Driven Insights

Most of us are always within reach of our phones. We’re also extremely likely to open any text we receive. Still, there are other reasons SMS marketing is highly profitable for dispensaries.  Text messages can be more personal and direct than other channels through nuanced targeting that segments audiences by demographic, behaviors, preferences, and customer journey stage. 

Cannabis customers often associate dispensary texts with valuable and time-sensitive information, especially when the dispensary segments its audience to send targeted promotions based on an individual’s purchase history. That’s why MMS texts see 80% fewer opt-outs and a 15% higher click-through rate.
