What is a Text Blast?

The term text blast is used to describe the communication strategy of texting an entire group at the same time. SMS blasts are a simple way to reach mass quantities of people quickly. Compiling key details into one, easy-to-read text message can help organizations communicate clearly and effectively.

Businesses and organizations are using text blasts for everything from emergency alerts to letting customers know about a big sale. It's just as powerful as a marketing tool as it is a communication method.

How to Send a Text Blast

The process for sending text blasts is very easy. Even if you don't have technical expertise, you can master the process in three simple steps. Let's check them out...

1. Choose a Textword

A textword is simply a word or phrase people text to your short code to opt-in to receiving future text blasts from you. Each textword is essentially a new list of subscribers. You can have as many textwords as you like, or use just one and create segments of that list based upon specific subscriber data.

2. Build Your List

If you don't have any subscribers yet, you'll need to build your list by gaining new opt-ins. If you've grown a text list with a different service or have collected people's numbers in a compliant way, you can import those people who have already subscribed. Remember, to remain legally compliant each person on your list must have explicitly opted in to receiving your text blasts.

3. Send Your Blast

Once you have a list of subscribers, you can start sending SMS blasts. This is where it gets fun. All you have to do is select which textword you'll be sending your message to, compose your blast, and then send it in real time or schedule it to be sent at a later date.

Employee Communications

Employees are inundated with emails these days and many corporate emails go unread. Important initiatives and reminders will fall on deaf ears if you can't get people to open your messages, which is why SMS blasts are so helpful for engaging with employees. Reach people where they're really listening—on their phones.

From collecting feedback with SMS surveys to automating and scheduling text message reminders, text blasts have become an important tool for many companies around the world.

Text blast compliance icon

Text Blasts & Compliance

Through the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), the federal government has strictly regulated how text blasts can be sent. The CTIA, which is the wireless trade association, works with the cellular carriers to support these regulations and ensure SMS blast services are upholding the necessary rules. What are these rules? Well, you'll need to obtain explicit consent from people before texting them. You'll also have to provide them with a little information about who you are, how often you'll text them, and how they can opt out.

Compliance is one of our top focuses and we're committed to helping everyone keep their text programs legal. For that reason, we've put together a free SMS marketing compliance guide and have built our entire platform to make satisfying the necessary guidelines easy. From auto-generating your terms and conditions, to inserting required verbiage in messages where required, know that you're partnering with a company who is well versed in cellular compliance.
