Bulk SMS: You Send
Need to communicate with your database quickly and effectively? Use an SMS!
Bulk SMS allows you to send thousands of SMSs at once! Once you’ve got some catchy copy, a promotion, reminder, or corporate communique, you can get it in front of thousands of eyes in seconds. That way, you can inform, reassure, and delight your audience with all the information they need.
You can send one or multiple SMSs to a large database of cell phone numbers simultaneously. Your messages can also be scheduled, ensuring they go live at a specified time.
This highly-effective channel of communication is designed to put millions of customers within reach in just a few clicks. It’s accessible from one easy-to-use, convenient platform, anytime and anywhere.
