What is a mass SMS?

A mass SMS or text message is used to text a large group of people simultaneously. Mass SMS allows you to text hundreds or even thousands of people all at once. 

You can use mass SMS for everything from marketing to appointment reminders and event invitations

How does a mass SMS work?

You cannot just send unsolicited mass text messages. Instead, all recipients need to opt-in to receive messages from the sender.

From there, you can use an SMS application like TextSanity to send out a mass SMS instead of trying to do it manually from your phone, which would be time-consuming and nearly impossible

Can you send baby shower invitations with a mass SMS?

Since mass text messaging is so versatile, you can use it for a wide variety of different things — including sending baby shower invitations to help you welcome your little prince or little princess into the world.

Sending baby shower invitations with a mass text message instead of email or snail mail offers some unique advantages:

How to send baby shower invitations with a mass SMS?

  1. Create a TextSanity account
  2. Get permission from your contacts (send the opt-in message)
  3. Set up your SMS campaign

TextSanity makes it easy for you to send your baby shower invitations out with a mass text message. All you have to do is follow these three steps, and your invitations will be on their way: 

Step 1: Create a TextSanity account

First, you need to create a TextSanity account so that you can access all that this application has to offer. You will be prompted to enter some information about your texting needs so that TextSanity can recommend the best plan. 

However, you can always skip this step and go straight to the registration page, where you can select a plan for yourself.

After that, you can choose between a local number or a toll-free number, for an extra charge. Next, you enter the desired area code for your dedicated TextSanity phone number and select your desired phone number from the list of suggestions. 

Finally, you’ll be prompted to complete your account setup by entering your email address and creating a password. 

Step 2: Get permission from your contacts

Now that your TextSanity account is all set up, you will need to receive permission from your contacts before you can start messaging them. This is designed to comply with federal rules and regulations according to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

To get permission from your contacts, you can choose to upload them into TextSanity directly using a CSV file complete with names and phone numbers. 

Alternatively, you could use a text message keyword campaign and have your contacts text a keyword like “BABY” to a specific phone number to opt-in that way. 

Step 3: Set up your SMS campaign

Once all of your contacts have opted-in, it’s finally time to set up your mass texting campaign with TextSanity by following these steps: 

  1. Navigate to the “Broadcasts” tab in your TextSanity account
  2. Click on the “+ New Message” button in the top right-hand corner of the page
  3. Name your message something relevant like “Baby Shower” and select your recipients
  4. Draft the message itself with all necessary information and an introduction
  5. Schedule the message to send at a later date and time or send it right away

Other ways to use TextSanity for your baby shower

­

You can use TextSanity to do more than just send out your baby shower invitations; you can also use it for text message drip campaigns, collecting payments, and communicating with guests

Text message drip campaigns

Use TextSanity to set up a text message drip campaign for your baby shower. For example, you could set a series of messages to be sent out after the contact opts in. 

You could also schedule a message to be sent out the day before the actual event to remind everyone once again of the time and location. 

Collect monetary gifts

Use TextSanity to collect payments as gifts since not everyone needs a new stroller, bassinet, and high chair at their baby shower. 

All you need to do is set up your TextSanity payment account for an extra $5 a month and link your bank account or credit card. 

Your guests will certainly appreciate not having to run to the bank for cash or write a check ahead of the shower. 

Communicate with guests

Use TextSanity to communicate with guests in the leadup to the shower with your TextSanity inbox. This two-way inbox allows guests to message you directly with any questions about the event. 

For example, let’s say that a guest had a question about the event’s dress code. They could simply text your dedicated TextSanity number with their question, where you would then see it and quickly respond with the information they’re looking for. 

This helpful TextSanity feature helps everyone stay on the same page and contributes to a successful event.
