DialMyCalls How To: Register A Free Keyword and Send Text Broadcasts

In addition to sending voice broadcasts, DialMyCalls members can now register a free SMS keyword and send out text message broadcasts.

Text messaging is becoming more predominant in today's society when it comes to communicating with one another. DialMyCalls offers, in addition to voice broadcasting, the ability to send out an SMS broadcast to a list of contacts at once. In conjunction with our text broadcasting, members will receive one free SMS keyword that is used as an identifier for their message recipients.

Utilizing the DialMyCalls text messaging service also provides an opportunity for non-profits, businesses, sports leagues, and various other types of organizations to build a contact list – every keyword includes unlimited opt-ins. Promote your keyword by sending out a newsletter, bulletin or in-store advertisement telling everyone to "Text 'YOURKEYWORD' to '80123' to receive weekly updates and news." Once opted in, a contact list will be created at which point in time you will be able to send those contacts text message updates.
