Overview

Specialists in Mobile Marketing.

We provide a broad range of services from SMS applications, to Text 2 Win Campaigns, App design and App development as well as App Notification programs, App Marketing Services and traditional digital agency services. Our aim is simple – to help our clients harness the true potential of mobile technologies to create value for their customers and in turn, drive growth for their businesses.

Most of the work we do is natively mobile, using technologies like SMS, apps, messaging, app notifications, mobile games, QR codes, location based marketing, mobile wallets, and not quite there yet stuff augmented reality, iBeacons etc.

As well as that, we leverage traditional digital marketing tools and social channels to drive brand awareness, sales conversion, and customer acquisition and retention.

 

Origins

From Tiny 160 character ACORNS to mighty 4k augmented reality OAKS!

RTN2SNDR started off as a text messaging company in London, 2001. The founders were both working in agencies and internet start-ups. This was around the time that texting was taking off like a rocket. They thought to themselves, “Well, everyone is texting, everyone has a phone now – what are brands doing about this? , What role can a brand or business play in people’s busy, mobile lives? clearly there has to be more to it than blasting out messages”.

From this idea RTN2SNDR ( Return2Sender) was born. A big part of our offering is helping brands understand that with ‘personal’ mobile you have to earn permission to talk to consumers, and when you do, you must ‘send’ or create something of value. People simply won’t give you their number or download your app if there’s nothing in ‘RETURN’ for them. The same idea holds true today. In fact with soaring consumer expectations and diminishing attention spans (thanks Hailo and Pokemon!) the messaging mindset  is even more valid now than it ever was. 

And yes, since you asked, we got stuck with the whole Elvis return to sender thang but at least you won’t forget our name!

Approach

We combine cutting edge technology with creativity

In one way mobile is ‘just another screen’. But there is simply so much you can do with a smartphone that unless your mobile activity is harnessing the latest smartphone tech you’re really missing a trick.

We live and breathe the latest technologies so that when it comes to taking your big idea or campaign or insight or business challenge we’ll ensure you get the best work.

But as before, it simply comes down to doing the best work and creating something people actually want to take part in.

App Development & App Marketing

We have over 9 years developing apps on iOS, Android, Windows, iPad, Android Tablet, Apple TV, Apple Watch.. the list goes on. All of our app design and development is done in our Dublin office with our apps team. 

In tandem with this and to MAKE APPS THAT WORK’ we also run ongoing integrated digital advertising campaigns, as well as app analytics, app engagement and push notification programmes to ensure your app is being used and re-used. 

This has increasingly become an even more important component of our remit as app specialists – especially as clients start to allocate more budget to their app strategy in line with apps becoming a bigger part of their customer offering. 

We also build powerful content management systems to update your apps and enable you to update and manage your own content. 

 

App Marketing

There’s a reason why many apps are downloaded once and then deleted – many of these apps are not being supported with ongoing communications such as in-app messaging, App notifications, App Store Advertising & App Store Optimisation , Email, Social integration, Google Adwords, SEO,  and integration with paid, owned and earned channels.

Our App Marketing Team can help your business devise an app marketing programme to ensure your app continues to deliver value for your business and your customers.

SMS still delivers the best ROI of all Mobile Marketing tools.

Peer to peer SMS may be in decline but the business uses for SMS are actually increasing year on year.

From Text and Win campaigns, to customer feedback, voting, notifications, alerts and even bite sized content – SMS yields the best ROI of all mobile marketing technologies.

We have over 16 years developing SMS services and we provide SMS services in UK, ROI, Northern Ireland, Australia and mainland Europe. We love a challenge and can also conceive and develop bespoke SMS services aligned to your business objectives.

We can also provide you with a log in to our Easytext bulk SMS product to help you schedule, plan and send bulk SMS messages to your customers.
