Why SimpleTexting Is the Best Alternative to SlickText
Here are some of the reasons SlickText customers switch to SimpleTexting.
Cost isn’t everything, but did you know you can save more than $6K* a year using SimpleTexting? The best part is you still take advantage of the same–and even more–features. It’s a no brainer.
*Based on SimpleTexting’s 50K credits, annual plan.
Build 1-on-1 RelationshipsOne of the main reasons SlickText customers move to SimpleTexting is that the SlickText SMS inbox is very limited. With SimpleTexting, you can: Add emojis, leave notes, create templates, mark conversations as resolved, or unresolved, and even snooze them, and filter/manage conversations. If you want to offer text-based customer service or sales, you can with SimpleTexting’s SMS inbox–at no extra cost.
Account-Level AnalyticsIn SlickText, you can’t view performance across your campaigns and textwords in one dashboard. With SimpleTexting, you can see both campaign, keyword, and account-level analytics in one place.
More Flexibility to Manage Your ContactsSlickText’s platform revolves around textwords–keywords in SimpleTexting parlance. For example, if you want to create a segment from all your contacts in SlickText, you can’t. You can only create segments within textwords. The same applies to custom fields. With SimpleTexting you can create as many customer segments as you want from all your contacts.
No Limit on KeywordsWith SimpleTexting, we offer you the ability to create unlimited keywords with any plan. Even with our $29 a month plan, you can create unlimited keywords. The $29 plan at SlickText comes with only two keywords.
Billing FlexibilityWith SlickText, you have no option to pause your account like you can with SimpleTexting. Plus, we don’t stop you from sending more messages than your plan allows, we charge you at a per-message rate. That means if you need to send more texts one month, you can without having to upgrade your plan.
Free List Growth ToolsSlickText offers a web form builder, which is great. So does SimpleTexting. We also provide our customers free of charge a Click-to-Text button, and a mobile sign-up widget they can place on their website. The latter is particularly powerful for customers with keywords on a toll-free number.

"I use SimpleTexting to better connect with my audience and build relationships with them on a 1-on-1 basis. I love that there’s an app and that I can send things out from my phone. Texts are way more personal than sending an email blast or putting something out on social."
