Mass Texting

Back to Navigating SMS

Mass text messaging services allow you to send one text to thousands of people.

What Is Mass Text Messaging?

Mass text messaging, also known as bulk SMS, 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 can save considerable time and effort by allowing one consistent message to be broadcast to a large number of customers or supporters, from group messaging to sending a single mass text that reaches all of your subscribers. Examples of how mass texting can be used include sending mass text notifications or SMS alerts, daily text message updates, notifications about sales or special offers, and more.

Benefits of Sending Mass Text Messages

Mass text messaging is efficient, affordable, and easy to set up. Businesses and organizations everywhere are taking advantage of mass texting on a daily basis, allowing them to quickly and easily send bulk SMS messages or alerts to all of their subscribers.

The local diner’s doing it. So is the nationwide bank. So are the gas stations, the grocery stores, and the go-kart tracks. If the kids at the lemonade stand down the street aren’t already using it, they probably will be soon.

From Fortune 500 companies to local nonprofits, the power of mass text messaging is transforming digital marketing strategies and changing the way to communicate with customers or supporters.

Mass texting services can leverage subscribers who are eager to receive updates from your business or organization and turn them into active customers or engaged stakeholders. A single mass text message can be the easiest way to alert a group of customers about a new sale or instantly broadcast a fundraising message to dedicated supporters of your nonprofit.

Why should you consider mass texting as part of your digital marketing strategy?

It turns out there are some pretty good reasons to consider it:

  • Captive audience
    Today’s consumers eat, sleep, and breathe mobile, constantly checking their beloved devices.
  • Sky-high open rates
    90% of mass text messages are opened within 3 minutes, and almost all of them are opened at some point.
  • Rock-bottom costs
    Mass texting is super affordable, especially considering the super high engagement you get in return.
  • Ease and efficiency
    Instead of messaging everyone individually, save yourself some time and effort by firing off a quick mass text.

Mass Texting or Bulk SMS: How Does It Work?

One of the most important benefits of mass text messaging or bulk SMS is how fast it is to get started for easy and effective communication with all of your subscribers.

The first step in sending a mass text message is to sign up for an account, of course. From there, it’s a simple matter of importing your existing subscribers. You can also build a brand-new list by using web forms or inviting people to text a selected keyword to SimpleTexting’s unique text short code, 555888.

Once you’ve got everything set up and ready to go, it’s time to write your special promotion, appointment reminder, emergency alert, snow-day ode—whatever you want, really—and then send or schedule it. Easy as simple pie.

By the way, thanks to custom fields, you’ll have the option to customize each text with, say, customer first names or any other collected data. It’s a great way to make your mass texts sound more tailored and personal.

Keep in mind that even though you’re starting with a mass text, you can still have one-on-one conversations with individual subscribers in real time as they respond. Pretty nifty, right?
