What Are Automated Text Messages?
Automated text messages, also known as scheduled text messages, are SMS messages that you write in advance and schedule to send automatically to your subscribers.
Text or SMS messaging is fast, fun, convenient, and personal. And thanks to automated text messages, it’s one of the easiest ways for businesses to keep in touch with their target audience.
With SimpleTexting, you can send an automatic welcome text when people join your marketing list. You can also create an automatic drip campaign with multiple texts scheduled to go out one at a time to your subscribers.
Send appointment reminders by text. Manage volunteers. Notify customers about deliveries. Engage with your customers. Reach large audiences with group texting. Send an automated mass text alert to all of your subscribers.
SimpleTexting can help you do it all with automated text messaging.
