Guided by the data..
Text-based ticketing is a no-brainer for businesses looking to tap into the millennial consumer base. After all, texting is the preferred communication medium of choice for younger consumers with 75% of millennials preferring text to the easily ignorable and impersonal email, according to Upland Mobile Marketing.
Texts are immediate, have a more personal feel and a higher level of interaction. In fact, over 90% of people read a text message within just three minutes of receiving it, according to VentureBeat.
Furthermore, since mobile is the preferred device for consumers of all ages (with 99% of 16–24-year-olds and 87% of 55–64-year-olds using a smartphone in the US it just makes sense that sports teams and live-entertainment venues are looking towards text-based interaction to increase consumer adoption.
