What Is Mass Text Messaging?

Mass text messaging, also known as bulk SMS, is a service that lets an organization or business send a single text to thousands of subscribers at the same time.

Benefits of Mass Text Messaging

Businesses and organizations everywhere are taking advantage of bulk texting on a daily basis, from mom-and-pop shops to Fortune 500 corporations to churches of every denomination under the sun.

The local diner’s using text marketing and bulk SMS. 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.

Why all this mass text messaging? Turns out there are some pretty good reasons for it:

  • Captive audience

    Today’s consumers eat, sleep, and breathe mobile, constantly checking their beloved devices

  • Sky-high open rates

    90% of text messages are opened within 3 minutes, and almost all of them are opened at some point

  • Rock-bottom costs

    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 by firing off a quick mass text

If you’re a SimpleTexting user, you can add a reliable, mobile-friendly messaging platform to the benefits above. The responsive design plays nice with every screen size, and the inbox is intuitive and super easy on the eyes.

How Bulk SMS Works

It’s a snap to get started with bulk texting for easy and effective communication with all of your subscribers.

Step one 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?
