Our mass texting service makes scheduling a snap. From your SlickText dashboard you can manage all of your outbound text messages from one simple location. With just a few clicks, you can tee up a new text to be sent to any contact list of your choosing. Furthermore, you can even schedule your texts to send to specific segments of your lists based upon specific criteria you define. This allows you to hyper target contacts and communicate only to those whom you want.
The first step in scheduling a mass text message is to choose which list you'd like to send to. You'll be provided with a simple dropdown to select from. Additionally, if you have any segments set up for the list you've chosen, you'll also be provided with a dropdown to select which segment you specifically want to target, if any.
Next you simply need to provide the content of your text message. Your character limits can vary from 160 all the way up to 1,600 depending on whether or not you are sending an MMS (picture) message. You can also choose to post your text message to facebook when it's sent.
Repeating text messages are simply texts that are scheduled to send on a regular basis. Some refer to this as recurring SMS. Regardless, we've made that extremely easy too. On our send message page, instead of choosing to schedule the message for later, you can choose to send it "regularly". Selecting this option exposes a handful of options that give you the flexibility to specify things like what months, days of the week, weeks of the month, etc. that your text message will send.
