TEXTING HAS BEEN RELEASED
FOR BETA TESTING!
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TEXTING?
These days a lot of people are using text messaging, and it is rare that a recipient will miss a text. For instance, emails get missed because they go to spam or other inbox folders or even just because the recipient's email provider blocked it.
- Text messaging allows you to quickly reach more customers & business builders while maintaining a personal connection that is always important in "relationship marketing".
- Texting allows you to reach thousands of contacts at once with mass alerts and notifications.
- Texting is the easiest & fastest way to get the word out quickly.
- Texting allows you to send a bulk text to everyone in your filtered contacts, which means one single message to everyone - PRIVATELY.
WHAT FEATURES DOES YOUR TEXTING PLATFORM OFFER?
Right now, only basic broadcast texting has been released for beta testing. This means that we have released this basic version for large scale testing in order that any bugs can be easily isolated and fixed.
All the robust features that you would expect are planned, but each part of this system is expected to roll out one major function at a time.
This will allow Essenty to get feedback and user experience on the foundational operations of sending text messages and processing replies and recipient activity - before additional features are added.
WE DO KNOW THIS MUCH...
- You have a real phone number - FREE!
- You pick your own phone number based on area code.
- Your messages won't look like spam to your contacts.
- Your messages will feel personal because it is personal.
- When you send one message to several people, it will arrive as a personal text, not a bulk one.
- You can create unlimited broadcast text campaigns
WILL YOU ALLOW IMAGES IN TEXTS?
Good question and the answer is YES, but not in the first release. Once the texting platform is released Essenty will not stop until it has the functions that our customers need. So you can expect it will evolve as it gets upgrades.
WHAT IS A CAMPAIGN?
A campaign comes in two flavors - Broadcast and Series. A broadcast is a single message to an audience. Please click this link to learn more about this and the upcoming series campaigns, which are multiple messages scheduled to send to an audience.
However, the Grow With Us plan is going away in a matter of days and it will soon not be available for new customers going forward. Anyone who has it now will keep their plan & pricing.
