There are many reasons why bulk SMS will benefit your business. Most notably, text marketing allows you to reach so many people – 93 per cent of Brits own a mobile phone. It's rare that a text message is ignored, especially if the receiver knows that they will be rewarded for opening it.
Here are some more reasons why business SMS is vital:
It all depends on how many texts you want to send! Our bulk message bundles are competitively priced, so businesses of all sizes can afford to implement SMS marketing. In fact, we have a price match promise – if you find a better price elsewhere we will match or beat it. Our web software is completely free to use too and will be forever; just pay for the number of texts you need, and you're away!
Yes, and it's incredibly easy to do so. When drafting your messages, all you need to do is find the file you want to attach – this may be a Word document, PowerPoint presentation, PDF, JPEG or Excel spreadsheet – and our Messenger software will convert it into a link. This enables your recipients to click through to your menu, photo, newsletter, whatever you want to attach! The only restriction is the file cannot be larger than 10MB.
