Read What Real Customers Have to Say About SimpleTexting
Hear what others have to say about how we measure up to the competition.
"SimpleTexting is one of the easiest solutions to get started with. We’re able to directly contact our users to update them or get them to opt-in to our community. You don’t have to have any development experience. You can just sign up and have a way to directly text your users."
"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."
"What I like best about SimpleTexting is that it allows me to interact with my clients on a regular basis. I send out a monthly market update along with an invitation to enter a drawing for a $25 gift card. This interaction keeps me top of mind for referrals and directs clients to my website."
"We needed a simple way to drive app downloads for our company, and SimpleTexting provides that. It’s so easy to add the shortcode and keyword to our marketing materials. The platform even integrates with our website, allowing visitors to request a download link to their phone."
