What is an SMS Blast?
What is an SMS Blast?
An SMS blast, or broadcast, is a way to send a single text message to all or part of your contact list at once. These messages are sent by businesses through an application-to-peer (A2P) messaging gateway. Texts are received individually without seeing the entire group details (like when sending a group message). If you use a shared or dedicated number to send your blast, recipients can reply to your message.
SMS text messaging is simple and very, very effective. With unmatched open rates of 98%, you know that your message will be seen. In comparison, open rates for email are 20-30% at best! In addition, 75% of consumers welcome marketing offers and news via text message from their favorite brands.
