Ways to send bulk SMS text messages from your computer

Broadcasts and keyword campaigns allow you to reach a large audience by text message with TextSanity. We’ll discuss each below. Also, send individual messages from your TextSanity inbox which works similar to iMessage. A few added benefits are included such as scheduling a mass text message.

Sending mass text messages using the broadcasts page

First, send mass text messages from your computer using our broadcasts page. Mass text messages sent through the broadcasts page aren’t sent as a group message. If someone replies to the mass text message, all the other contacts messaged won’t receive the reply. This means higher open rates since people are less wary of an individual text message.

In addition, TextSanity offers scheduling broadcasts, or mass text messages easy. Schedule mass text messages as far in advance as you like. Edit a scheduled broadcast at any time before it’s sent. Also, any time before a message sends, you can change any of its details.

Sending bulk text messages legally

It’s important to know TextSanity complies with federal TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act) laws. These laws govern how phone calls and SMS messaging disseminate from automated systems. For our purposes, it matters that someone consents to receive a mass text message before you send them one.

TextSanity only broadcasts to opted-in contacts. Easily gain opted-in contacts for SMS marketing through keyword marketing campaigns, simple webforms, and through an opt-in request to contacts you’ve manually imported (see screenshot).

Sending mass text messages using keyword campaigns

Second, text message keywords allow you to reach a large target audience by text message in real-time. These campaigns are extremely useful in text marketing. They’re a popular way to engage potential customers with targeted offers and deliver information straight to mobile devices.

Easily set up a text message keyword in TextSanity by choosing a keyword that activates an automated message flow. Basically, when someone texts the keyword to your TextSanity phone number, an automated message flow responds. This is great for surveys, applications, and RSVPs. Responses are collected in a downloadable spreadsheet.

Gain opted-in contacts using text message keywords. They’re designed to ask for consent to future text messages. Once the customers opt-in, your contacts page updates with their information. This allows you to mass text message them. And don’t worry, mass text messages come with optional opt-out to satisfy federal law.
