  • Tag Filters – Select from any of the current contact tags as a filter (e.g. “San Francisco” would return all contacts with that flag)

Common Questions

Why is Bulk Business Text Messaging Important?

Many of the world’s largest businesses are using text messages today, and for good reason: it works. It’s 2019, and the way customers and employees want to communicate has changed. E-mails are often marked as spam; nobody ever answers a phone call from a number they don’t recognize. As the world has become more mobile, people prefer to use their cell phones. Text messaging has emerged as the primary way people want to communicate.

Across each metric, text messages outperform emails in every way. SMS messages are opened more, opened faster, and responded to more frequently. According to a recent Customer Think study, text messages beat email across every metric. Text messages are opened 98% of the time. Texts have an open rate 5x higher than email, and are opened in less than 3 minutes. Because of this, businesses can use bulk SMS to immediately connect with their customers and employees wherever they are.

How Does Bulk Texting Work?

Sending bulk SMS campaigns requires a subscription to a bulk SMS service provider like Sakari. Sakari is a web-based software program that allows complete management of your messages. Once logged in to the SMS software, you can add and edit your contacts in bulk, create and save your messages as templates, and send your messages.

To send your messages, simply pick your message template, select your desired contacts, and click send. In seconds your contacts will be reading your message, wherever they are.

After your message has been sent, each of your messages is managed as a conversation in the Sakari dashboard. As responses are received, you’ll be notified of replies by desktop notifications, and you can send replies in real-time.
