Text blasting is as easy as 3, 2, 1, blastoff.
Let’s say you’re the proud owner of Baby Space Elephant Rentals, LLC, and you want to get more people to come rent your baby space elephants. Just sign up for a text blast service like SimpleTexting, build or import a list of contacts, and send out a limited-time discount via text or MMS. And wham, bam, just like that, a mob of baby space elephant enthusiasts rushes up to your bounce castle and politely asks permission to inspect your herd. You are now wealthy.
There’s a text blast app around every corner, but text blast software is a better bet.
With apps, you’re limited to contacts who have the same app as you installed on their device. Apps typically have caps on the number of people you can simultaneously contact, and they’re reliant on a data connection.
Blast text messaging software, on the other hand, gives you a lot more coverage. Only 68% of mobile devices support email or messaging apps, but all mobile devices come with texting functionality pre-installed. And you don’t need data for text blast software to work. Text blast software also offers the ability to implement autoresponders as well as other SMS integrations.
With regular texting, your potential audience is leaps and bounds larger than with fancy texting apps.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the wireless trade association CTIA set strict rules that companies must follow when sending text blasts. These include obtaining express written consent before sending promotional texts as well as disclosing your identity, the message frequency, how to opt out and more.
The good news is we’ve made complying with these guidelines super easy so that you can focus on what really matters: connecting with customers. When a subscriber joins your list, we automatically send out all the required disclosures for you. Currently, we’re the only SMS and automated text messaging company that sends a free best practice compliance message as a separate standalone text.

75% of people prefer to receive offers via SMS.
The average response rate to text messages is 45%.
Text or SMS blasts are an effective form of marketing for businesses in every industry.
