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 Straightforward

Our Pricing is Transparent and Straightforward

Cost 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 Standard

Two-way Conversations Come Standard

One 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 Code

You Don’t Need to Know How to Code

If 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).
