Text Marketing Messages Help.
This is pretty easy. Let's bring you up to speed.
Sending a Text Message...
Sending a message is extremely easy! Just click the "Send a Message" link in the navigation bar. This will take you to the send message page. From there you'll need to give your message a campaign title so you can easily view it in the future. Then select which textword list you'd like to send your text message blast to. After that, all you need to do is type up your message.
Scheduling is just as easy as sending a message! The only thing you need to do is select the date and time that you want your text message to be blasted out.
Once you've finished typing your message and have clicked the "Send It!" or "Schedule It!" button, your message will go out to everyone who has signed up for your text message list. You will see a confirmation on the next screen.

Posting your message to Facebook
You also have the option to post your text message to Facebook. This is a great time saver as it kills two birds with one stone. If you're going to send a text out, many times you'll be posting similar information on your Facebook wall or other page as well.
To post to Facebook, click the "Post to Facebook" button as seen below...
When you click that button, a window will pop up asking you to login to Facebook and give SlickText.com permission to post on your behalf. Click accept.
Once you've given Slick Text permission to post on your Facebook, a dropdown box will appear so you can choose where the Facebook post will go. You can choose your own timeline or any page that you're an admin of.
You'll also be given an option to "tweak" your message for Facebook. You'll definitely want to take advantage if this if the text promotion you're sending out is text specific. For example, if your promotion includes "Show this text to get the deal", you might tweak your message to say "mention this post to get the deal".
To tweak your message, simply click the tweak message for Facebook link. A text box will appear where you can adjust your message.
Once you've tweaked your message for Facebook, you have the option to send it now or schedule it to send on a date/time in the future just like you would with a regular text message.
Viewing Your Sent Messages
Viewing your previously sent text message campaigns is easier than sending one. Just click the "Sent Campaigns" link in the navigation bar. This will take you to a list of all of your sent campaigns. There you'll see each campaign title, the textword list it was sent to, the date it was sent, how many people it was sent to and a link to show what the message sent.
