If you already have a list of mobile phone numbers, SimpleTexting makes it easy to add them to your SMS campaigns. You can also include additional attributes like name, email, and personalized notes.
Confirming “Express Written Consent”
Before you add any numbers to your contact list, you have to confirm with SimpleTexting that you have received conspicuous express written consent. It’s not enough to bury permission deep in a terms of service agreement. The Telephone Consumer Protection Act requires that the consent be clear and conspicuous.
To confirm that you received express written consent, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Import Contacts
After you confirm express written consent with SimpleTexting support, you can proceed to the online uploader tool. Ensure that contact information is formatted within a .csv file. Open the SimpleTexting dashboard, and then go to Subscribers > Contacts > Import Contacts.
Fill out the fields for List Name and Description, and then choose the file you want to upload. Check the box to agree to SimpleTexting’s terms and conditions, then click “Upload file.” On the next page, match the csv fields to SimpleTexting’s fields, then click “Import.” After that, your numbers will be entered into the SimpleTexting platform.
