    The staff with Simple Texting is awesome! They are very timely and extremely helpful and patient!

    Pros

    I was recently shown some of the additional features like "Text to Vote" and was so happy to see this was already pre-made and ready to roll with only a little info needed from me. It made our contest a breeze for voting!

    Cons

    The only thing I can think of is not realizing that each person texting in is more than one text. So when calculating pricing and such, I should have accounted for a couple texts each when determining how many credits I needed. But it's so cheap it never hurt my pocket going over by a few.

    We're so happy to hear about the value you're finding in SimpleTexting, Thomas! In regards to that notification, that is sent from a person's phone/carrier and is not something that we send out. SimpleTexting does not charge the people that text in, but standard message and data rates may apply; the same as sending/receiving any other texts on their plan.

    We are able to help set appointments en-mass with our leads who are not responding to calls/voicemails or emails.

    Pros

    It is very intuitive - and if you have any questions there's a chat feature that links directly to the company and they help you right there in real time. Text is an outstanding way to communicate with your existing clients AND capture new ones - Simple Texting is effective and is pretty easy to use.

    Cons

    Bumped into some limitations on adding contacts - but that was remedied via chat within just a few minutes.

    Pros

    Overall ease of use and adoption by our customers has exceeded our expectations. Excellent value and has improved our customer service tremendously.

    Cons

    More visibility into reason(s) why SMS might be delayed by certain carriers when they have internal issues - not really a Simple Texting issue, but something that would make the tool better.

    We use our SimpleTexting subscription with our ATS system, BrightMove. This is something we had integrated to easily text candidates directly from the ATS. It works great and send communications promptly once you hit send. Customer Service team is great for any issues you may have.

    Cons

    The pricing bundles for the amount of text messages. I really wish there was a 15,000 message option between the 7,500 and 25,000 text allotment.

That is why we're more than happy to create a custom plan for you! Please feel free to reach out to our customer support team to get that set up!

    Needed a texting option and this is good to get for the price offered. Great intro to texting options.

    Pros

    Easily create keywords for different campaigns. Lots of customization to make everything unique and easy to use. Like the polls option.

    Cons

    Import features not the best, but part of that might be our inability to get good data in the first place. Better text2give functionality would be great.

    Tested this for a restaurant client and found it to be a great experience. Easy onboarding and some good functionality for the price.

    Product has a good design, we found the web forms useful. Didn't have many complaints about the usability. Maybe a little more functionality in the free plan but overall the app is not expensive compared to other services.

    I guess I wish I had only signed up for the lowest package. I was just trying to collect emails from a conference and last year since I got 200, I figured i would need the bigger package, but it turns out I just got 25, the limit of the package, so i paid for the month which maybe I shouldn't have. But also, I noticed a few people unsubscribed from it immediately, and didn't actually click the link it sent them, to go to mail chimp and sign up for our email. So I'm wondering what scared them away.
