With an online texting service, you can reach people either individually or on a mass scale by sending texts from a computer or mobile app.
Online texting is sending text messages to one or more recipients via a web application.
With an online texting service, you can manage individual 1-on-1 conversations, or you can send mass texting campaigns (for example, marketing campaigns or employee updates).
You’ll first need to set up an account with an online texting provider. You can get a free test account with our texting platform Mobile Text Alerts.
Once you have your online texting account set up, you can start adding contacts to receive your messages. You can add these individually, import a list from a spreadsheet, or use one of many other opt-in methods.
When you’re ready to send or schedule a message, you can simply select the recipients for your message, type out the message in the online platform or mobile app, and click the “Send” button.
Manage individual 1-to-1 texting conversations via a convenient messaging inbox—this allows you to view conversations, easily respond back, and quickly send new messages.
If you’re sending mass texts (such as for a business), you can organize your contact list into “groups” that allow you to keep better track of who you’re sending messages to. That way, you can send more relevant texts.
Set up different types of automated messages according to your own needs. That way, you have the flexibility to send your messages at the perfect time to serve your purposes.
With reports that tell you info such as what messages you’ve sent, the recipients who got your messages, how many people clicked your links, and more–-you can have the info you need on hand in order to track your texting efforts.
If you ever have any questions, live chat support is readily accessible on every page when you log into your account. And during off-hours, you can get a response within 1 business day (usually much sooner).
Enjoy a FREE 1-on-1 walkthrough of the platform, or if you’re more of a self-starter, take advantage of robust “Help” documentation and tutorials walking you through how to get started in as little as 5 minutes.
