How to Send Bulk SMS Messages
The specific way your business can send bulk messages will depend on your service provider. Each provider’s software or service may differ slightly. However, each will follow the same basic steps outlined below:
- Integrate your new SMS API with the help of a developer or programmer. Typically, this takes only a few hours; you can begin sending bulk SMS campaigns within the same day.
- Upload your contact lists with subscribers who have given your business permission to send them messages. Split the contact lists according to demographics or other campaign groupings.
- Craft your bulk SMS message according to the needs of your business and the group to which you plan to send the message. The message should be short but have an actionable command.
- Select the specific users you want your latest campaign to send to. This should be a targeted audience so that the message is as effective as possible, with the highest return on investment.
- Schedule your campaign to send either immediately or at a future date and time. Like the audience, the time should be targeted to elicit as much response as possible.
- Review your reports in real-time, along with campaign analytics, to see how your messages are performing. This will help you create even more effective campaigns in the future.
To see how this process might work before signing up with a bulk SMS provider, ask providers to see a demo. You could also sign up for a free trial or ask about testing credits if offered.
