Software has everything we need!

We've really loved being able to build our SMS list and SimpleTexting has been easy to use.

Pros

We had tried three options simultaneously and picked SimpleTexting because it has so many integrations that are easy to use. We are able to do giveaway contests, collect data, it integrates with our email software - really, they are the pros and have figured out what most clients need from the start.

Cons

There's nothing that I dislike thus far. It is slightly more expensive than other options, but right now it's worth it for all of the integrations

Reasons for Choosing SimpleTexting

Because they offered the most options and customizations. User-friendly interface. Great support.

Reliable texting service. Great that customers can text our landline!

Overall, this is a great product. The last text service we used didn't always get the messages sent and we knew this because we were sending them to employees with our company's cell phones. We use this a lot to communicate directly with customers and staff, not as much as a marketing/mailing list/keyword tools...yet!

Pros

We loved that we were able to set this up with our existing business landline. We can schedule messages to go out and set-up mailing lists. We can set-up as many users as we'd like as well. It's nice that we can save the customers' information within the software as well for ease of use.

Cons

I wish it had better group texting or group texting at all. We use this to text employees a lot and have to set it up as a "campaign " and they cannot see the other responses. I wish it had a built in afterhours reply. I know there's a way to set it up with another app, but we don't have it and I haven't messed with it. Pictures coming INTO our line take a very long time to receive, hours in most cases.

Reasons for Choosing SimpleTexting

I honestly cannot remember, but I think it was the price and unlimited users (but we pretty much all log into the same account now so we can all see all the messages)

Reasons for Switching to SimpleTexting

They had ZERO compliance at the time and we wanted a company that would help us with that so we weren't upsetting our customers OR breaking the law. We also know that all of our messages weren't getting to people.

Cohesive with our company

Pros

I like that we can use this software with our current number to receive and send texts showing our company number.

Cons

It kept blocking our texts saying we reached our limit. There were no further details until we reached out that this was taking place to stop potential spam.

Reasons for Switching to SimpleTexting

Not workable as a business. Blocks repeated texts.

Decent Platform, Glitchy at Times, Lacking Customer Service

Decent platform, but the software and customer service needs to be improved.

Pros

1 on 1 conversations with customers are easy to initiate.

Cons

Very difficult to send images. The software would not allow us to upload images on an Android or Apple device. I tried multiple times to find a solution from SimpleTexting about the issue, and customer service always gave me the run-around and acted like it wasn't a problem.

Ability to contact clients/prospects with ease

Simpletexting helps me get with the times - SMS Marketing is the new thing to capture prospects attention. Hands down the easiest, most effective SMS tool - I use it daily and love it!

Pros

It is very easy to set up your lists of people (clients, prospects, certain funnels, etc) It is very user friendly overall - everything is clear and makes sense. You get an app on your phone that you can check any incoming msgs from if you need to. You get your own phone number - great for businesses who are trying to implement SMS marketing! Autoresponders - when someone subscribes to your list, they automatically get a certain text message. Honestly, everything I wanted is in SimpleTexting.

Cons

I went over my text limit - while I'm fine with the overuse charge, I think it would be helpful if they contacted you to say "hey, you're over your limit - we could easily bump you up to this tier which would save you $x overall" Other than that, no issues with it.

Reasons for Choosing SimpleTexting

It was recommended to me by my mastermind group, but it also seemed affordable, easy to use, and implement in every other software I've used.

Reasons for Switching to SimpleTexting

Manychat was starting to block certain peoples accounts I knew, so I switched before I encountered the same issue.
