Bulk SMS, also known as "mass texting," is a messaging tactic that enables you to reach large groups of people at the same time with a single text message. It's an easy way to quickly reach the masses. Putting all your information into a straightforward text message can help you communicate much more efficiently. You can send bulk SMS messages in a range of situations spanning from marketing, emergency situations, and employee communications.
Because over 98% of text messages are read within minutes, organizations across the globe are adopting bulk SMS faster and faster. From marketing to communications, text messaging is the way of the future and will continue to dominate how people connect.
Sending messages is easy to do even if you don't have any technical experience. Our bulk SMS service has made the process extremely simple and can be done in three simple steps. Here's how to get started.
In order for people to opt-in to receiving your text messages they need to text to join. They do this by texting a keyword to a short code. A short code is a five or six digit phone number used specifically for sending and receiving SMS in bulk. At SlickText we refer to keywords as "textwords." Each textword represents its own list of subscribers. There's no limit to the amount of textwords you can have. Some people even decide to have a single list of subscribers and break it into different segments based on specific subscriber information.
Don't have any contacts yet? Don't worry, you can build your list by getting people to opt-in. Already have subscribers you've collected from previous services? You can import your list into SlickText, as long as they have opted in or have given you permission to text them.
Remember, to remain legally compliant each person on your list must have explicitly consented to receiving your bulk SMS messages. This is a core best practice for mass texting and SMS marketing.
Once you have a list it's time to start sending your bulk SMS messages. This is the time to put all your creativity to work. Simply decide which textword list you'll be sending your text to, type your message, and then hit send or schedule it to go out in the future.

The federal government regulates bulk SMS messages through the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. To support these regulations, the CTIA, which is the wireless trade association, provides oversight for the cellular carriers. What are the rules they're trying to uphold?

In addition to that, you'll need to tell them who you are, how often you'll text them, and how they can opt out.
