Top 5 reasons to send business SMS from your PC
Anyone who has spent time fiddling with text on phones knows that it’s a lot easier to type on a proper keyboard. But businesses are only now discovering that you can get the best of both worlds – SMS messaging straight from your PC, with all the power that it entails. It’s time to learn the benefits of business SMS, delivered right from your desk.
1. It’s quick and automatic
Businesses can use just one PC to deliver thousands of messages to customers, stakeholders and staff in the same time as it takes to send just one to a friend or family member.
MessageMedia offers Web SMS and API integration to deliver SMS from your PC. This software delivers SMS messages quickly, automatically, and in bulk.
2. It’s scalable and secure
Security and precision are necessary for managing and messaging your contacts. That’s why MessageMedia can integrate SMS into CRM, so your business can easily deliver the right message to the right people, driven by your own secure databases.
Think about your CRM and who is in it. Your business can provide value to every contact, using your safe and granular database.
Types of messages might include:
- Automatic stock updates
- Delivery tracking
- Fraud warnings
- Event reminders
Select your group, choose your message, and send SMS online.
3. It’s customisable
Targeting the right people is essential with all your business communication. Ensuring that each recipient gets a personalised experience is the only way to get real results. Creating tailored group lists means you can send bulk email that will still resonate with each individual.
MessageMedia even offers options to address each contact by name, adding another personal touch to help your business connect with your customers and stakeholders.
4. It’s organised
Sending SMS online is an easy way to stay in touch and incentivise action, but it’s worth nothing if you can’t track your interactions. MessageMedia offers a suite of reporting and management tools, so you know exactly what message you’ve delivered to whom, and when.
Business SMS can be set up to:
- Track all sent and received messages
- Organise preferences
- Manage opt-outs
- Schedule future contact
5. It’s yours
There are many utilities to make sending business SMS from your PC a valuable marketing and communication channel. MessageMedia can tailor communications to best connect with your audience.
For example, alpha tags or sender ID can be used so that delivered messages come from your brand name, instead of a random and unrecognised number.
SMS can support your brand through:
- Customer support
- Two-factor authentication for security
- Loyalty programs
