Bulk Text services have a unique feature which allows customers to add their business name to the text and will arrive at the handset as your instantly recognizable brand name.
This feature is called the Sender Name and the mobile operators allow up to 11 alphanumeric characters to be used as your sender name. Very popular among business owners who wish their message to be branded to their business name and therefore instantly recognized when delivered to the customer handsets.
Some business owners will use the sender name feature as the name of their campaign for example ‘Free Levis’ and in the body of the message the terms of current offer will be explained.
How to do it
It is very simple to do, simple click the Sender Name section in the Messaging menu item and add in a new Sender Name. Once added this sender name will appear in the sender dropdown of the messaging screen.
There is another option for sending your messages and is very popular with many business owners. It is called the Repliable feature. If you would like your customers to reply back to your message, you can simply choose the Repliable option and the message will be sent using a virtual mobile number. This allows the receiver to click reply and send back to your accounts. From there the reply can be viewed only or forwarded automatically to your mobile or email address.
Repliable is a very popular features especially in appointment confirmation text messages.
In summary, there are 2 options; you can use the Sender Name feature to brand your text message or if you wish to receive replies simply click Repliable and we’ll allocate a virtual mobile number to the text and send it out.
