How does it all work?
Posted by on 07 June 2013 09:56 AM

Thanks for your enquiry, it's always great to hear people that are embracing the 'power of text'!

We get the "how does it all work" question a lot. At first it can seem daunting but it's not. The way to think of it is this. It's the same as when you send a text to a friend from your phone, you choose them as a contact, write a message and send it. Their phone receives it with your number as the sender ID and they know it's from you.

There's no big difference with bulk texting except of course - it's en masse.


Our software, called messagebox™, has been refined over the years to be incredibly easy to use. At its most basic level you would simply copy and paste in a list of mobile numbers, write the message and click send - that's it!

We have created a PDF manual for the whole system - don't worry it's not 'war and peace' - and every screen in the system has a video tutorial specifically relating to the functions of that screen. You can also access all the documentation and videos online at http://www.textmarketer.co.uk/blog/category/messagebox/.


Here's what we recommend most people do first to take it for a test run;

  • Sign up for a free account at http://www.textmarketer.co.uk/signUpGoogle/ (you'll get some free credits in too for testing)
  • When you sign up, you'll be sent all the details of how to use your new account
  • Send yourself a few texts

Once you've seen how simple it is to use, we hope you'll be hooked. Everything is controlled by you, automatically online in your account.


After you've sent a few texts to yourself then you can have a go at setting the Sender ID as the free reply number in your account. Then you can reply to texts you send yourself and see those come in to the email address you used when you opened an account - neat eh? This is great for all sorts of things like customer research by text or replies to marketing campaigns.


After getting to grips with messagebox™ then you'll be thinking, "how best to use text in my business". No problems. We've created the Inspiration Zone just for that very question. It has a whole host of SMS marketing tips, example winning text messages, infographics and much more besides ... See http://www.textmarketer.co.uk/inspiration/


I hope this answers your question fully? If not and you need some further help then that's what we're here for - to be available to help in any way you need - just search the knowledgebase or submit a ticket at http://helpdesk.textmarketer.co.uk/ .... this isn't one of those 'wait forever' ticket systems. Within office hours, it's monitored minute by minute.
