Video: How to send bulk SMS text messages in the UK – Marketing Software
To start we're going to name the campaign, something relative that we can notice at a later date, so ''Example Text 1'' is a good example campaign name for what we're doing. Starting to type some text into the interface, this is the text that will be displayed on the recipients handsets. As you can see the counter counting down on the top right hand side of your text screen. We're currently one of three messages. The system can do very, very long text messages but please be aware that each message will use an additional credit. There's our call to action, a telephone number in this case, and an incentive aswell so we're using an offer code ''OFFER20'', that'll do nicely! Now we're going to choose who we're going to send the message 'To'.
So find the row that says 'To', click the 'Edit' button on the right hand side, and now we're going to select some 'Individual Contacts', I'm going to select myself, and I'm going to select 'Carl'. It's also possible to mix and match so we can add in a list of people as well by clicking the 'List and Filters' tab, here's my test list. It's also possible to remove your selections by clicking the 'X' on the corresponding row. So myself and Carl. I'm good with that! Lets go to commit to scheduling this message now. On the summary screen you can see two recipients, cost for this send, two credits, our current balance and the balance after we've commited to the send. I'm going to tick a box to confirm that I agree that the message is going to cost me two credits from my credit on account.
I'm also going to tick the second box to agree that I'm happy with the content, and we're good to go. Let schedule it!.
