Bulk SMS and Viber Business

Bulk SMS and Viber campaigns

Message targeting

Filter your customers using various criteria to precisely target your bulk campaign. This way, you send out advertising or other campaign types with content that attracts the right group of people.

Message personalization

Personalize the text of your SMS and Viber campaigns by using different variables. Rather than writing “Hi, how do you like your guitar?” isn’t it better to write “Hi Jake, how do you like your Fender Stratocaster you bought 7 days ago at our store?” By leveraging the information you collected about the customer, your campaign has a dramatically different impact on your business.
