Group texting allows you to easily message multiple contacts at once all within the convenience of just a single text.
For example, you can create different groups of contacts for your business like a managers-only group and another larger group for the entire office. Next, you can craft the desired message and send it to a specific group with the click of a button.
Unlike business emails, group SMS also allows you to send important messages to a device your recipients are guaranteed to have access to even when they are not in the office. As a result, group texting with Textedly is a more efficient, faster way to communicate with others in your business.
Even better, with Textedly you don’t have to do this on the spot or set reminders to send a particular message. Instead, you can create templates for common messages and schedule them to be sent out at a specific day or time. You can also create segmented groups of recipients to ensure your mass messages are sent to the right party.
Once you’re ready to start your business’s mass messaging with Textedly get ready to:
For example, if you would like to send a mass message to a specific team in your business, you can save team members as a segmented group. You can also segment your internal communication by employees levels from setting up a group for C-levels only, middle-level managers, and so on.
Similarly, if you want to reach specific customers for your business, you can choose to segment them in different ways like by interest levels or purchase history. For example, if you want to reach customers who are top-spenders only, you can filter customers by purchasing power.
For example, “Text GROCERY to 242424 to receive weekly coupons.” Grocery is the keyword and 242424 is the short code.
A great way to use this strategy is by pre-segmenting your potential groups. Then, you can assign multiple keywords that are more specific to each group you want to target. Keywords and short codes make opting-in easy for the recipient which makes it an effective way for businesses to encourage contact to sign up to receive text messages.
Failing to fulfill the above requirements can result in a TCPA violation. A violation can include monetary penalties.
Sending messages to individuals who have not consented to receive information from you can also cause recipients to block your company from their receivers. They can do this by adding themselves to the TCPA’s Do Not Call Registry or by marking your number as spam with their telephone company. Doing this regularly will lead to your business receiving negative reviews and bad word of mouth from potential customers. Texting is useful for business but it’s important to understand and adhere to all text messaging laws for positive results.
