If you’re always on the go, you can forward incoming text messages from your customers to your email or mobile phone.

Schedule Messages
The best feature SMS marketing has to offer is scheduling the dissemination of messages. Create your special offer in advance, determine the date and time you want it delivered, then schedule it. Utilizing this features gives you the freedom to promote discounts without having to actually be at your computer to input and send the offer. Scheduling messages allows you to do two things at once.
followup
Follow-up Campaigns
Your customers who have redeemed an offer via SMS deserve to be treated like a VIP. Follow-up campaigns are designed to do just that. When you’ve identified repeat customers, tag them accordingly in your lists. Give them the royal treatment by texting particular offers just for them. The offers can be relayed in a scheduled series too.
