Text blast best practices

Clear, concise message

A text that takes too long to get to the point can frustrate your audience. A great text blast message gives the important information up front.


Make it personalized

Speak to your audience as if you’re sending texts individually to contacts, rather than to a list. Add custom fields (like your contacts first name) to your message so that each text is personalized.


Target relevant contacts

Segment your contact list to send messages to contacts who are most likely to be receptive to your message (ex. people RSVPed to an event). Targeted messaging can improve ROI for your text blast campaigns.


Clear call to action

If you want contacts to take action on your message, make sure your CTA is compelling.

Use action words (buy now, read here) and convey the urgency of your message if applicable..
