Sending an Opt-In SMS
Often businesses re consider their targeting to a precise set of audience who are interested in their products and services, familiarly called as “Subscribers”. Remarketing to subscribers is a top-notch priority to the new age businesses. Through our messaging platform, you can exclusively target the subscriber list through Opt in SMS.
Once your Opt-in Keyword and Opt-in group are created, you can send Opt-in SMS to the numbers in your group. You can access the Opt-in SMS panel by clicking on the Send SMS dropdown and choosing Opt-in SMS.
There are two ways to gather user's mobile number:
Opt-in Group: For Opt-in Group, you must provide your user’s mobile number and those numbers will be added to an Opt-in group and named related to your entity.
So that whenever you want to send an SMS to those numbers, you can send in one go without any delay.
Opt-in Keyword: For Opt-in keyword, we will create a keyword (eg. Jabong, Flipkart etc.) related to your business entity and provide you a VMN (virtual mobile number ex.966XXXXXXX).
You can ask your users to subscribe and unsubscribe using below format.
To subscribe: keyword (e.g.: Jabong, Flipkart) SUB to VMN (966XXX)
