    Hi Benny,

    You can do sms marketing campaigns for your customers. With standard letters you can put in one message 160 characters. You can randomize your sender ID (what will be appear to recipients). Prices depends from network to network.

    If you want to know more, please PM me.

    Thanks in advance,

    plenty of SMS providers exist, some with many bells & whistles (survey options, polling, trivia capabilities, etc)..however, all you need to get started is a simple SMS plugin. Next go via twilio to send messages. Ideally you'll want to use a short code as that's the preferred method to send SMS. i've encountered poor send deliverability using long codes in high frequency. I was sending 1000's of messages daily. Getting a short code will solve that problem.

    Next just choose a vertical and you'll be good to go. I got started in this space and i'm somewhat intimate with SMS. I've built my offline company with primarily SMS before branching out to other services.

    But start simple, and progress as needed. Hope that helps.

    SMS Marketing is permission based, thus each customer must have given permission to the company to send text messages to their mobile phone. Companies can collect their customer’s mobile phone numbers in many different ways. Once you have permission to contact, you must decide who you want to target and what you want to tell them.

    Where is your target market? It would be helpful as some SMS providers are very limited in their services.

    I recommend carefully considering what kind of amounts you're going to be sending, shopping around and finding out the prices that various services offer, and then thinking about how much you want to spend in total. If you don't do your research, it can come back to haunt you later when you're locked into a service, having paid for your subscription in advance, and decide that you want to increase the amount of SMSes you're sending but realize that their prices are too high. So yeah, definitely do your research and find out as much information as possible from the people running them as possible.
