How to Send Automatic Text Messages

If you think it’s difficult to send automatic text messages, you’ll be relieved to know that with Textedly it is a simple, easy process. Follow the steps below and you’re ready to enjoy the automated messaging benefits that so many other businesses are already.

Sign Up For an Automated Texting Service

Don't be confused by the vast number of automated texting service companies out there. Textedly is your experienced, dedicated company offering years of experience and customized services specific to your needs. We make it easy to sign-up for text messaging service regardless of your business needs or budget.

Upload Your Contacts

Upload your contacts. All contacts that have said ‘yes’ to receiving messages from you can be uploaded in a matter of minutes. It is a fairly simple process as well. Simply browse for your contact file and upload or drag it to the page. If you need help, read our short tutorial first.

Create Segmented Groups

Each customer who’s opted-in to receive SMS messages from you has done so with different interests and goals in mind. Create segmented lists for your contacts to ensure you’re reaching people based on criteria that are important to them, such as signup source, demographics, gender, age, and more.

Set Up Keywords

Determine keywords to use in your SMS messaging. A keyword campaign allows you to set a specific keyword that customers/consumers text to a shortcode. This keyword allows them to opt-in to receive text messages or enjoy the offer listed in your message.

Rules regulate how you can introduce SMS programs. Textedly makes it easy to keep up with the regulations and ensure that you follow them correctly. We also help select the best keywords to use for your messaging campaigns.

Encourage New Users to Subscribe

Encourage new users to subscribe to receive SMS messages from your company by offering them a deal or freebie. A special offer always entices customers to check out your business. Choose an offer that customers cannot refuse - the money spent is worth the amazing gain that it creates. Make sign-up easy and simple. Consider using QR codes as a part of your campaign to encourage new subscribers. Add a form to your website and to social media pages that offer customers the chance to opt-in to receive your messages.

Compose Text Templates

Textedly provides customers an easy-to-use text template tool that allows you to quickly compose a text message to send to selected recipients or groups of recipients from your contacts list. We offer industry-specific templates or you can design your own from scratch. Adding personalization elements is important regardless of the template you choose. Personal elements such as the recipient's name grab their attention quicker than generalized messages. Textedly makes customizing SMS messages simple, no matter how many names fill your contact list.

Schedule and Send

Once you’ve composed your text message template, you can easily schedule the message to be sent in the future or send it immediately. You can create recurring messages and reminder campaigns as well. Each tool is powerful and helps boost business and retain the names currently on your list of contacts.

Send recurring text messages on birthdays, holidays, reminders, anniversaries, subscription renewals, and more. Reminder campaigns drastically reduce the cost of business for most companies.
