Follow a few easy steps to get started!
Step 1: Choose your keyword.
To initiate your text message service you should pick a keyword that best conveys your marketing idea. Start by choosing a keyword that best matches your marketing idea or business name. This word will be your customers’ key to joining your marketing campaign list.
Step 2: Customers/Clients subscribe to your group.
Once your keyword is ready start collecting cell phone numbers for your database. Simply have your clients send a message to your chosen phone number , specifying your campaign keyword. Your opt-in campaign can be very easily included in your existing advertisements. To opt in customers simply need to send a standard text message with your keyword to your preferred ten (10) digit phone number, thus giving their permission to receive messages from you.
Step 3: Form your opt-in customer groups.
The opt-in messages sent by your customers are collected in a group that you create and name at your discretion, for instance – group INFO, STEAK, CAR, BURGER, BIRTHDAY ETC. You can create a new group or use one of the previously created groups with each keyword.

Step 5: Send messages to your groups.
When your database of customers stabilizes, either create or provide us with messages containing your special offers to begin sending targeted messages at the times and dates you specify. Cell phone marketing is an extremely powerful marketing channel. The key issue is that it should always be opt-in. You should never send an unsolicited text message to anyone. A cell phone is considered much more private than email and people are therefore very sensitive about the information they receive on their phones.
