Dunkin Donuts Uses Text Messaging To Increase App Downloads

Most brands nowadays already have mobile app landing pages with text-2-download functionality, but it’s much more rare to see a brand using text messaging in traditional media to make it easier for their customers to download their mobile apps. Recently when walking through the Boston airport, I stumbled upon a sign infront of a Dunkin’ Donuts, encouraging customers to download their app by texting “APP” to 386546, which conveniently spells “DUNKIN”.

When you text APP to 386546, you get the following text message. The best part, the website URL they’re using detects the mobile phone type, and automatically re-directs the consumer to the right app store for their mobile device.
