AKRON, Ohio , June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Knotice, the leading provider of direct digital marketing software and services, is helping the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation engage shoppers via SMS during its Hot Rod Amplifier Summer Tune Up promotion.
Rebate tags with a shortcode are placed on qualifying Fender Hot Rod Amplifier products. After purchasing the product, consumers simply text the call-to-action to a shortcode to fill out and submit a rebate form for free products.
“Today's consumers always have a mobile device within reach. We wanted to provide our customers with a mobile experience they would find convenient and immediately rewarding,” said Chrissy Mauck , Web site content producer and editor at Fender. “Knotice's software and strategic talent makes it easy for us to provide our customers with valuable, rewarding experiences.”
Utilizing Knotice's on-demand software Concentri® Mobile, Fender is able to easily connect with consumers on the go, allowing them to quickly submit product rebate information via their mobile device instead of manually filling out a rebate form and sending it through the mail.
