2 Way SMS
DialMyCalls' Two-Way Texting feature is a premium option that members can add to their account for $19.99/month. Once the 2 Way SMS is activated, members are able to send out text message broadcasts and then read all of the replies from their recipients - members also have the ability to reply back directly from their online admin.
What Is 2-Way SMS?
Two-way text messaging utilizes Long Code SMS, Keywords and Short Codes which are the two factors that set it apart from traditional SMS texting. With 2 Way SMS, users must send messages to a pre-defined long code SMS number or a short code such as "80123" at which point in time they will receive an automatic reply.
How Can You Use 2-Way SMS?
There are many ways in which two-way texting can be a beneficial addition to your DialMyCalls text messages. Set up your very own text message polls by sending out a question and then having your recipients respond back -- two-way texting allows you to read all replies and then even reply back.
Take a look at a few examples of how organizations can use 2-way SMS:
- Schools - Create a direct line of communication between teachers and the parents of their students by utilizing two-way texting. Schools can also combat bullying by setting up an account for students to text school officials -- 2-way SMS will allow officials to reply back directly to those students.
- Businesses - Set up a direct link with your customers using SMS Broadcasts and two-way texting. Send out customized text messages to each customer asking for feedback and go through each reply from within your DialMyCalls account.
- Churches - Communicate with your congregation easier than ever before. Members of your church can opt-in to receive text messages and then you can communicate with them for special events such as fundraisers or charity drives -- ask for volunteers via text and they can use 2-way SMS to reply whether or not they are able to help out.
