Managing Your Contacts & Groups
Group Texting organizes your contacts by source - Keyword Opt-In, Web Widget & Upload. You can sort your contacts into unlimited groups. Add one contact to many groups. Quickly move, add info to, opt out and delete contacts. Your contacts are yours. You can download them whenever you want...and we'll never sell, rent, or use your contact lists, period.
Uploading Your Contacts
Group Texting allows you to quickly upload or paste the phone numbers of previously opted-in contacts with a few clicks. Assign the contacts to a group, and we'll do the rest - weeding out duplicates, determining the country, and determining the correct network.
Sending A Group Text Message
Sending text messages to 10 people or 10,000 people is simple: Choose your group(s), type your text. Send it. Planning ahead? Schedule your message to go out later.
Keywords are a great tool that allows your customers or group members to join your group text messaging contact list from their own mobile phones.
People quickly and easily opt-in to your group text messaging list by texting your chosen Keyword to our long code. In the above image, Join is the Keyword.
The person will then receive an automated reply message that you can easily customize. This message confirms their subscription to your group messaging list. Please Note: This auto-response message is mandatory.
With a keyword, you can also take advantage of our Send-From-Phone feature. From your personal phone, simply send [keyword + your message] to our long code and every contact in the connected group will receive your text message.
Receive Incoming Text Messages
When your customers text your Keyword to our long code we deliver that message to your Inbox. Your customers can continue to text you after they've joined your list by texting in your Keyword. Can't login to your Group Texting account? No problem - we can forward your incoming messages to your email account or your own mobile phone. Want to analyze your messages or simply back them up?
