Conventional wisdom would dictate that clients will naturally gravitate toward the lowest price SMS reseller program they can find. However, this is not necessarily true. Think about how many electronics people buy just to be the first kid on the block with the new toy. Think about how business owners will invest in something just because that’s what the competition is doing and he knows he must sink or swim if he wants to compete. SMS is one of those animals — much like gasoline — that businesses can’t really afford to cut these days.
SMS is used by 4.16 billion people world-wide with no signs of slowing in popularity. To give you an idea of the magnanimity of this trend, consider that 6.1 trillion messages were sent out in 2010… which is up from 1.8 trillion in 2007! Given the knowledge that your SMS reseller program is desired by all and that the market is not yet over-saturated by providers, how should you price your services to attract business and retain clients?
