What is an SMS Blast?
What is an SMS Blast?
An SMS blast, or broadcast, is like using BCC in an email. You can send the same single text message to a group of contacts. Each person receives your text but doesn't see any of the group details. And, if you use a dedicated number, your contacts can reply.
Text broadcasting (or blasting) is great for businesses sending one-off campaigns and promotional messages. It’s a type of
bulk SMS messaging.

Can I Send An SMS Broadcast To Anyone?
You must have consent to send text messages from your business; this is obtained through getting contacts to opt-in. Here at ClickSend, we do not allow the use of purchased lists.
How Many Characters Can I Use?
A standard SMS message has a maximum of 160 characters. Longer messages are definitely possible; messages are broken into multiple message parts which cost one message per message part. The recipient will still see this as 1 long message on their handset. Our dashboard features a character count so you know exactly how many message parts you are using. If sending an MMS you can access up to 1,500 characters.
