Introducing: New Feature to Bypass DND

Dear valued customers,

Since the enforcement of the Do-Not-Disturb policy by the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) on all Telecommunications Company (MTN, GLO, Airtel, Etisalat, etc.) existing subscribers have experienced difficulty in sending Bulk SMS to DND numbers on their respective networks.

Today, we are happy to announce an update to our service that allows you to bypass the DND restriction on all networks. The introduction of this new feature has already been added to our portal and is fully functional. 

The DND bypass feature allows you to reach your contacts whose numbers are on DND by using rUPDATE as the senderID.

To implement this feature, 

  • Click on Compose SMS / Compose Bulk SMS
  • Input your message and check the box – “Send to DND numbers (2 Credits)” 

Your message will deliver to the DND numbers conveniently.

We hope this information will prove helpful. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any question. We promise to continue providing you with the best possible service.

Thank you for choosing SMSlive247!

Things to take note of when using SMS for marketing campaigns

1. Collect your own contact list through opt-in features; never rent or purchase lists.
2. Frequency matters - Avoid sending more messages than the initial number you set in your opt-in welcome message.
3. Specify the end dates of promotional campaigns to encourage customers to act quickly.
4. Include a compelling call-to-action and incentives to encourage a response from your audience, ie: "Shop online today and save 15% off your entire purchase!"
5. Make sure all message content is relevant to your target audience.
6. Crosscheck messages thoroughly before sending, making sure all links are active and spelling is correct.
7. Send messages at appropriate times of day, avoiding early mornings and late nights.
8. For promotional messages, deliver at optimal times during business hours to bring in quick traffic.

How to get the most out of your bulk SMS reseller business (part 4)

Managing users: 

If you have only one paying customer, which happens at a point, make the user feel like owning the site. Treat every user as important as you can. This won’t only make them stay for as long as nature permits; they won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone that needs the service. 

A satisfied user is the best advertiser of any business.

Also, some people may see incentives, discounts, and promo as ways of keeping users. But we can authoritatively say that intimacy with users by way of timely congratulatory messages and unique customer service is worth more than a year-long discount.

Just make sure that your users experience an excellent service delivery with little or no cause for complaints. If you can guarantee this, you're on your way to achieving success.

How to get the most out of your bulk SMS reseller business (part 3)

Blog as a tool: If there is one thing blogging does so well, it is announcing your professionalism to the world. The content of your bulk SMS blog, if they are genuine and authentic, tells your readers how well you know your onion.
As a bulk SMS reseller, you can share your knowledge and experience in the business (even if that’s all you know) with visitors and users of your site. If you know more, bring all to bear. But keep your content relevant.

Everybody wants to do business only with a professional, not someone who only plays around words. Stand out from the crowd of people who put up “bulk SMS business” materials for sale or hold seminars on the discourse without knowing how a bulk SMS website really operates. Practical knowledge over time earns you experience, experience in turn makes you a teacher.

You will be amazed at how much impact your blog can have on your brand if managed properly. Our support department will also be here to guide you every step of the way!

How to get the most out of your bulk SMS reseller business (part 2)

Marketing campaigns can be launched on advertising networks like Google Adwords, Facebook Ads, LinkedIn, Ad Dynamos etc. These forms of advertising come at a cost but can be highly effective if well-planned and targeted. If not, you only get a stream of website visitors who are not converted into paying users. Anyway, that’s not a complete loss as visitors today may still turn users tomorrow.
You may also advertise your bulk SMS reselling business on newspaper columns, TV or Radio Stations if you have the resources. Whichever mode of advertising you employ, just showcase your business.
Social media like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn are also very effective. You can create pages for your bulk SMS website on social communities and link up with your website. Engage fans regularly by posting interactive messages and pictures that facilitate two-way communications. This keeps fans visiting and commenting on your pages thereby becoming acquainted with your brand. If well managed, social community traffic is the surest of all forms of campaigns. It also has the highest conversion rate.
