Welcome to Burst SMS! We’ve created an easy 4-step plan to get you going on our platform. You can send out your first campaign in 10 minutes, we promise!
If you haven’t created an account yet you can do so HERE. Once you’ve logged in, set your timers, we’ve got your first campaign covered.
Step 1: Add Your Contacts
Who are you trying to reach? If you’re anything like us, you’ll have a CSV of contacts at the ready. Make sure you’ve segmented your audience and upload only those contacts you have permission to reach.
TIP: you can create new fields which you can reference later.
Step-2: Message Basics
This is where the fun starts: what are you going to tell your audience? “Welcome!” is always a good place to start.
It is mandatory to add an Opt Out link in every message you send. Be a responsible sender.
Step 3: Personalise Your Message
Step 4: Top Up & Go
