Difference Between Group Texts & Text Blasts

Text Blast

A text blast is a mass text message that is sent to a large number of people at once.

Group Text

A group text is a text message sent to a small group of people, usually no more than 10.

The main difference between a text blast and a group text is the number of people that receive the message. Text blasts are sent to many people, while group texts are sent to a small group. Another difference is that text blasts are typically used for marketing or promotional purposes, while group texts are used for more personal communication.

Text Blasts & Compliance

Text blast, or text message blast, is a mass messaging service that allows businesses to send out large volumes of texts quickly and easily. However, some rules and regulations need to be followed to stay compliant with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA). Here's what you need to know about text blast compliance:


The TCPA requires businesses to get written consent from customers before sending them any marketing materials via text. This means that customers must opt-in to receive texts from your business.


The CTIA has a set of guidelines known as the Short Message Service (SMS) Marketing Code of Conduct. This code sets out best practices for businesses that send text messages and includes ensuring customers can opt-out of receiving texts and not sending texts to customers who have not given their consent.

By following these guidelines, businesses can stay compliant with the TCPA and the CTIA when sending text blasts to their customers.
