Things to consider before bulk texting
Here are some things you would want to consider/check before sending out your text blast.
- Phone number to send out the texts
To be able to send texts, you want to have a phone number saved in your aNinja account. Either you buy a new phone number from aNinja or you port your own.
- Leads phone numbers
If possible, provide a mobile number in the lead’s primary contact to ensure the delivery of your message.
- Text segmentation
When crafting a text template, you want to count the characters you’re adding to this text. A text is composed of 160 characters which is considered one segment. If your text exceeds 160 characters, it will be delivered to the recipients anyhow, but you will be overcharged for all the extra segments by your phone carrier.
- Text limit per bulk/per user
According to your Billing plan (only for Advanced and Pro plans), each user can send 2000 SMS per bulk.
If you wish to increase your SMS limit, either:
1- Reach support at email@example.com and they will bump it up for you, with a one-time charge of 15$ for every additional 1000 SMS per user.
2- Enable the auto-recharge for Billing, that automatically recharges your add-ons once your plan included add-ons are hit.
3- Or, limit your bulk texts to 2000 SMS per bulk by segmenting the contacts in the CSV file before you import it.
