Bulk SMS shows the highest open and click-through rates compared to any other marketing channel.

Research by FunMobility found that with open rates of 98% and a click-through rate of over 36% (compared to email marketing at 3.4%), bulk SMS or mass text messaging has become a must-have tool for business. FunMobility also found that 90% of adults keep their mobile phones close to arm's reach, and SMS messages are read on average within 90 seconds of being sent.

This makes SMS the most direct, quick, and arguably the most effective communication channel available today.

Email to SMS service

    Small batches of SMS or Bulk SMS messages can be quickly sent using our Email to SMS gateway service. This service allows you to send and receive SMS messages directly from your email address and any other accounts you wish to enable. Responses can be directed to individual senders or a centralised email address. This easy tutorial can activate this service in just a few minutes.

    You can open your email account to begin sending your bulk messages following activation. To send individual contacts, type in [phonenumber] into the recipient field. If you want to send the message to a group, type in [groupkeyword] as the receiver. Setting up contact groups is a simple and great way to save time and reach larger contact volumes.

    To complete the Email to SMS process, write your message in the body of the email and click send. Please note that you do not need to include a subject line for Email to SMS.
