Proximity, in the text message marketing industry represents the distance between your marketing campaigns. For example if you schedule or release a text marketing campaign to go out tonight for dinner  your proximity would be the amount of time in between that campaign and the next.

Having a set proximity is very important because your customer can be over whelmed if they receive one promotion to close to another it may seem overwhelming to the customer.

Top tips in text message marketing not to violate Proximity

1. Figure out your set frequency

Designate how many times a month you want to promote to your customers.

2. Whats your proximity?

Set a even amount of time in between the text message marketing campaigns you schedule.

3. Stay within your boundaries

If you have a frequency of 4 messages per monthly and you have pick Wednesday to release your text message marketing campaigns then try to stay within 1 or 2 days of that set day for campaigns.
