SMS Campaigns

SMS marketing is a text-based service used to send promotional messages such as discount offers and product updates. However, you need a person’s consent to send them these messages. The latest reports state that SMS messages have an open rate of over 90%, which is much higher than the open rate of emails.  

With the SMS Campaigns module, you can:

  • Create and send out mass SMS messages
  • Track delivery statuses in real-time
  • Configure reply actions for SMS replies
