How To Send One SMS To Multiple Numbers Online

In this article, we show you how to send one SMS to multiple numbers online with SimpleTexting and explain why you should use a text messaging service.

Mass texting—also known as bulk SMS—refers to the sending of SMS or MMS messages to a large list of contacts.

You can use mass texts to communicate with staff, send updates or emergency alerts, and stay in touch with customers.
