The messages being sent at time you press the "Send SMS" button. If you want to be sent at another time in the future you have to schedule them.
You can schedule SMS to be sent at any time you want.
Scheduling is as easy as "Send SMS". The only difference is you have to specify the time.
The time messages being sent is very important when you doing SMS marketing . Read the following excerpt from the article "8 tips for effective SMS marketing"
You definitely don't want to bother customers. So, send SMS too late at night or early in the morning is not a good idea. It has been found that the best times to send SMS are between 12-2 noon or late afternoon between 6-8.
Personalized SMS allow you to avoid the impersonal bulk SMS, where all messages have the same text. With Personalized SMS, the recipient will have the feeling that the message he received has been written for him.
In order to replace the name / adjective / field for a message you must first create a group in which the data you want to be 'automatically pulled from the system' will be stored (name, surname, field).
To send personalized bulk SMS you must send them from a group.
In the text of the message write the characters % fn% where you want it to appear the name, % ln% where you want the recipient's last name to appear and % fd% where you want the other field to appear.
For example if you have the following contact in one of your groups: 6912345678 Nikos Papageorgiou collaborator and send to 6912345678 the text message:
"Dear Mr.% ln%, we wish you happy birthday ..." will appear on the recipient's mobile number 6912345678 as follows: "Dear Mr. Papageorgiou, we wish you happy birthday ..."
* The SMS charge is the same. You just have to pay attention to the characters that the message will eventually have after replacing the name / surname. So if a message is longer than 165 characters will be charged as 2 (long SMS).
Single SMS has a size of up to 160 characters, but this should not necessarily be considered a weakness.
Small SMS size makes it short, concise and leads recipients to open it and most importantly to read it.
A good practice, since most phones are now "smart" is to include a link that may contain additional information from those of your message.
Important, at this point, is to make sure the text of the SMS is autonomous and makes sense on its own, regardless of whether someone will open the link.
Before putting the link in the SMS, and since it is not the home page of your website, it is good idea to reduce the link with a free tool like bitly.com .
If a recipient of your messages no longer wants to receive SMS you can remove it very easily using Blacklist.
Blacklist is a special group. Blacklist you add the phones that no longer receive bulk SMS from Smsbox , no matter how you do the bulk SMS campaign (file, group or individual mobiles)
This saves a lot of time and you don't have to search the lists or groups to find the recipient's mobile phone that he does not want to receive messages and then you have to delete it.
By removing the phone from Blacklist, the recipient will normally receive the SMS again.
Personal pages can help you comply with the European GDPR Regulation.
Allows you to get your customers consent if they want to continue receiving SMS from you (SMS Opt-In) or if they no longer want to be informed (SMS Opt-Out).
