It’s all a fairly simple and uncomplicated process. First, you build a group of contacts that you want to send your message to. That’s done in three ways. If you have an existing list of contacts, you can upload them to your online database that we provide. You can add a web widget to your website that allows people to enter their information and join your group. And finally, you ask people to join your group by texting a word you choose, called a keyword, to a number like 82257, called a short code.

Now you’re ready to send your message. You compose the message within your account, and we send it to all of the major U.S. wireless carriers, such as AT&T and Verizon, and they transmit it to everyone in your group, who receive it in minutes.

When the individuals in your group, whether it’s 100 people or 10,000 people, open their message and read it, they have the option to reply. If they reply, that message will be delivered to your account inbox, and you have just completed a 2-way group text messaging operation.

Although we’ve been primarily discussing advertising/marketing applications here, there are other applications as well. Large churches use this service to send announcements and daily prayers to their congregations or youth groups. Colleges and public schools are using this technology to send emergency alerts and other announcements to the whole student body at once. News organizations, sports teams, weather services, political groups, charities, and many other types of organizations are finding that group texting can be of great benefit to them in a variety of ways.
