What Makes SimpleTexting the Best Twilio Alternative?
See the most common reasons business owners and marketers switch from Twilio to SimpleTexting.
Our Pricing is Transparent and StraightforwardCost isn’t everything, but that doesn’t make hidden fees okay. With our pricing plans, you get what you need at the right price point with no hidden fees and no charge for incoming SMS messages.
Twilio’s pay-as-you-go plan has the potential to skyrocket exponentially as your contact list grows, and they charge you for incoming texts.
Two-way Conversations Come StandardOne of the main reasons Twilio customers move to SimpleTexting is that the Twilio SMS inbox is limited.
With Twilio, you need to connect to an application that responds to TwiML to receive incoming SMS messages.
The SimpleTexting inbox is ready to use as soon as you sign up. Plus, you can leave notes, create templates, mark conversations as resolved or unresolved, snooze messages, and filter and sort conversations.
You Don’t Need to Know How to CodeIf you want to send a text message with Twilio, you need to be able to code or have access to a developer.
With SimpleTexting however, you can send messages directly from our easy-to-use dashboard with a single click. No coding required — unless you want to use code (and even then, we can help you).
We Have Searchable API TransactionsWith SimpleTexting, you’ll have a dedicated search page that lets you quickly check whether your API calls are being accepted.
You can also integrate your web application with our SMS API using straightforward webhooks.
Who Should Choose SimpleTexting Over Twilio?
If you’re a developer in need of an all-in-one voice, SMS, and WhatsApp solution, Twillio is more in line with what you’re looking for. But if you’re looking for a text marketing platform everyone on your team can use, not just the developers, SimpleTexting has everything you need.

Twilio offers a pay-as-you-go pricing model that’s based on what type of message you’re sending, where you’re sending it to, and the recipient’s carrier.
The rates for sending messages via Twilio are $0.0079 for SMS (text-only messages) and $0.02 for MMS (messages with media like photos or video). They also charge for incoming messages at rates of $0.0079 per SMS and $0.01-$0.02 per MMS.
To view the messages you send and receive in an inbox, you’ll need to integrate Twilio’s Programmable Messaging API for an additional fee.
Our pricing plans start at $29/month for 500 credits (one SMS is one credit; one MMS is three credits). Each plan comes with all of our core features and unlimited keywords.
Contact sync integrations are available as an add-on for all plans, and advanced automations are available as an add-on for those on the $549/month plan or higher.

"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."
"SimpleTexting makes my work easier. It has helped us streamline communication and cut down our communication time significantly. I like being able to send mass texts to my beneficiaries and also engage with them one on one. It’s super useful to automate messages."
"We have been using SimpleTexting for almost a year now and I appreciate the ease of use of the software. To get through the basic task of setting up an SMS campaign, sending it, and tracking responses, it does the job without making it difficult. It’s great software at a good price point."
