Mass text messaging services allow you to send one text to tens, hundreds, or thousands of people at once. Learn more about how ours works.
What Is Mass Text Messaging?
Mass text messaging is a communication service that lets an organization or business send a single text message to thousands of subscribers at the same time. Mass texting saves considerable time and effort by allowing one consistent message to be broadcast to a large number of customers, employees, or supporters.
Mass texting can be used for special offers and promotions, emergency alerts, staff communication, daily text message updates, sweepstakes, and more! Below is one example of a mass text from Baby Tula, an e-commerce store and SimpleTexting customer. For more, check out some of our success stories.
