Video Tutorial: SMS Text Message Broadcast

Tutorial topics

Add contacts to your brand new account individually, by uploading an Excel file or by copy/pasting a list of phone numbers directly into the quick add dialog box.
Click on "New Broadcast" and then select "Create Text Broadcast".
Once you have named your broadcast, select a keyword that you have already registered on your account or register a new one. SMS Keywords are used as an identifier for your contacts - this allows them to know who the text messages are coming from. Every DialMyCalls account will receive one demo keyword, each additional custom keyword is $4.99 per month.
Type out your text message in the corresponding field - text messages can be 157 characters in length which does include your unique keyword. You will not be able to go over the 157 characters and there is a counter for you to know how many are left.
Individually select contacts, add contact groups or add every contact in your account to the current text message broadcast.
Members have the ability to email their text message broadcast to contacts as well as send the message to their own number - these options are completely free and do not require any additional credits. The last option is the choice to send the text message out immediately or at a later date and time.
The confirmation page will allow you to look over your text message broadcast to make sure all of the details are correct. If everything looks good then you can go ahead and click on "Send Broadcast Now" to send the text out to your contacts.
