What is SMS marketing? Can we send SMS marketing campaigns with our mobile phones? Can we send free SMS messages? Can we build our own SMS server like in email marketing and send unlimited messages? This is what we are going to see in this video. Stay tuned and follow up with me. Hello friends, how are you? Before we start, if you are new to my channel, don’t forget to subscribe now to get every new update almost every day. So, you know me, I don’t like wasting time, so let’s go directly to the point. What is SMS marketing? In one minute, simply put, it’s sending bulk SMS messages. For example, you send like 1000, 2000, 10,000 SMS messages to people in a certain location or targeted by niche so you can promote your services or get traffic or whatever, like in email marketing. In SMS, we send SMS messages. So simple. So, this is SMS marketing in general, the big picture. How to run SMS marketing campaigns? Simply, you can go to top SMS marketing companies like SlickText, SimpleTexting, TextMagic, and run your SMS marketing campaigns. Do we have another option? Yes, we have two other options. The second option is to use an SMS API. We have SMS APIs like Clickatell, Twilio, SMSAPI, Bulk SMS, and a lot of companies which provide an SMS API to use on your own applications. So, in this scenario, you get the SMS API, you buy credits, and you connect your own application, the SMS sender application. You can buy one, we have some online tools, and so on. And, by the way, I’m building a free SMS sender for you so you can connect with any API to send SMS marketing campaigns. So, don’t forget to stay tuned with me on my channel to get every new update. So, this is the second scenario, SMS API connected to an SMS sender application to form your SMS system. What is the third option?
How can you use your mobile phone to send SMS marketing campaigns? Thanks to this guy who developed an awesome PHP application, the mobile SMS gateway. With this application, you can turn your Android device into an SMS gateway. You can connect your Android device online with this system and then send campaigns from your mobile phone. I tested it and it works perfectly. So, you can buy the script, host it online, connect with your mobile phone, and start sending your own SMS campaigns with your mobile network. By the way, you can simply test this by clicking on the live preview, registering an account, and testing this system before you do anything or buy it. If you are interested, you can check the link in the description and check the script. Also, I’m planning to buy this for you, host it, and do everything for you for free if I find that you are interested in it. So, comment below if you are interested in getting this software for free. Anyway, now this is the second scenario using this awesome application that I found on CodeCanyon. Here is the big question: if you are following me, following my courses, my videos on my channel, you know I showed how to build your own SMTP mail server and how to send unlimited emails without paying anything except for your server. Can we do the same thing when it comes to SMS? Can we build our own SMS server and send unlimited SMS messages?
Unfortunately, the short answer is no. We cannot do this simply without going into technical details and bothering your head. The SMS message uses the GSM or mobile network. Therefore, without access to the mobile network, you cannot send messages to people. It’s that simple. While in email marketing and sending emails, we are sending emails over the internet, so everyone is connected, and you can receive emails over this network. However, in GSM or on mobile, you need access to the mobile network, and this is impossible except by using a broker or an API. I hope the idea is somehow clear. So now we have learned what SMS marketing is, what different scenarios are to send marketing campaigns, and that we cannot build an SMS marketing server to send unlimited SMS for free until today. That’s it. This is how you can send SMS messages. This is SMS marketing in brief. By the way, soon, I will have a full course about SMS marketing going from scratch to advanced, explaining everything, how to build everything, and giving you all my free content and free applications.
