Bulk SMS messaging is a legacy description for application-to-person SMS messaging services. It refers specifically to the sending of large number of SMS messages to the mobile phones of a predetermined group of recipients.
Today the application-to-person SMS messaging services have evolved to include bulk SMS messaging alongside the sending of single messages (such as one time passwords and delivery notifications), interactive messaging (such as group messaging services), and incoming number services (such as mobile marketing campaigns, voting or information lines).
A defining characteristic of bulk SMS messaging is that businesses and organisations can make use of one or more solutions to send and receive SMS messages, namely; a mobile phone application, a software programme, a web interface, or integrate an SMS API with their website or system. These bulk SMS messaging solutions interface with a service providers’ SMS gateway to ensure the delivery of messages to mobile phone numbers anywhere in the world.
An SMS gateway acts as a relay between the mobile network operators and a wireless applications service provider. These SMS gateways allow for SMS traffic to distributed via a direct connection to the SMSC (Short Message Service Centre) of a mobile network operation and then onto a recipient’s mobile phone number.
It is important to point out that if you are sending Bulk SMS, you must comply with the data protection laws by your own countries regulator. You are required to obtain written consent from a consumer prior to adding that consumer to a mobile marketing campaign. This is a very specific term that means an agreement, in writing, bears the signature of the person being marketed to and clearly shows that they are authorising the seller to deliver advertisements or other marketing messages to their phone. The telephone number to which the signatory authorises these marketing messages or advertisements must also be included in the written consent form. You must also give your customers an opt-out option at the end of every SMS you send.
Bulk SMS has open rates of 98% and messages are read by the recipient within 5 minutes.
