Since 1999, many advanced functions have been added to the Text Marketer platform to allow for better SMS Marketing campaigns and ease of integration with other software packages.
With our easy-to-use Bulk SMS system you can copy & paste some numbers in, type a message and hit send to whizz out an SMS Campaign in seconds. But, there are some clients who need more advanced functions. There are also new styles of marketing campaign that can be created with advanced functions.
This is a list of some of the advanced functionality available with Text Marketer;
ONLINE USER INTERFACE

A great too for personalising SMS messages in Bulk. Useful for sending out member information or just good old name personalisation.

When somebody texts in a keyword to 88802 you can send up to 8 timed text autoresponses. Great for something like a ‘clue a day’ competition or an ‘offer a week’ promotion. Drives substantially better ROI from advertising.

Great for following up with more detailed information such as menus, property or job details. You can autorespond by Email if it’s included in the incoming message.
