What Is Peer-to-Peer Texting?
People like agents, volunteers, and business owners use P2P texting to engage subscribers in one-on-one conversations. Senders use a P2P texting platform to text SMS and MMS messages to a large group of people, encourage contact interaction, and converse one-on-one (i.e. peer-to-peer).
If you’ve ever had a rideshare service driver text you where they’re parked and you respond, you’ve participated in P2P texting.
