Save time and reach clients faster with our mass texting service. Send bulk SMS to staff, customers, and prospects at scale. Before you send text messages we recommend you create custom fields (mail merge) for your contacts, and import contacts from .CSV or Excel file.

To send text messages to a group of contacts:

Please note, when you are looking at sent SMS data there are several different delivery statuses:

  • Delivered – the message has been sent and the recipient’s network has confirmed delivery.
  • Sent – the message has been sent but delivery has not been confirmed, for example because the recipient’s phone is switched off. Delivery notification may take up to 12 hours.
  • Failed – the message has been sent but the recipient’s network is unable to deliver it. For example, because the recipient has cancelled their mobile contract.
  • Rejected – the SMS has been refused, by either the recipient’s network or Textmagic. For example, because the recipient has unsubscribed from your marketing messages or because you do not have a mandatory virtual number.
