Pros: Auto-responders - folks that text your short-code can be automatically enrolled in a marketing drip campaign or an ongoing content marketing campaign. We found that service to improve our app install ration by 40%.

Scale up - you can start with a low plan and just upgrade as you start using the service more. Once you're at the top, you're only paying /text!

Cost - Costs are very reasonable and super transparent. And if you want to go all in and get your very own shortcode, they can even help with that!

Self service - You can edit and improve your texts as you go, you usually don't have to wait for anyone

Customer service - AMAZING customer service. Real people that you can talk to over and over again. Super easy chat feature.

Group texting - If you want to send a message to everyone on your list, that's easy too.

Cons: No timestamp - Biggest con is that they don't have a timestamp when people subscribe; they just tell you when the date is. Not having the time makes it harder to optimize marketing campaigns.

Filtering - trying to navigate the lists and autodrip can be tricky because most pages don't have filtering or sorting functionality. You have to skim through the page looking for the list that you want

No "duplicate" feature - When trying to recreate an autoresponder campaign, you have to enter ever message in one at a time, which is time-consuming.

A/B Testing - This is more of a WISH than a CON since I don't think any service offers this - would be great if they would let users A/B test different text messages to see which ones produced more engagement - like email subject line tests.

Overall: I dramatically improved my conversion rate for my radio customer acquisition campaigns.

Thanks Javier for taking a few minutes to leave some comments and feedback! We always get excited when customers see such a benefit from using text messaging. With regard to your wish list, we're really focused on listening to our customers and delivering improvements wherever possible. Timestamps will be added to all list exports in the coming days, we think filtering, A/B testing and duplication are all great ideas and are on our roadmap so keep an eye out for these in the future.

Pros: Lots of great features and easy for customers to sign up for messages/sales/specials at our Charity Bingo Hall and Resale Stores.

Cons: For a non-profit, the service is expensive. Not too long after we signed up for the service, I was contacted about receiving a non-profit discount. I sent the information and checked back in, but got zero response back.

Overall: Ease of use for customers and keyword access.

We really appreciate you taking a few minutes to write a review, Joanna. Glad to hear how easy it is for customers to sign up and for you to reach back to them instantly! Sorry to hear that you didn't receive the non-profit discount on sign up. We believe in making our service as accessible as possible for non-profit organizations and I've taken care of updating your plan now. We're here to help if there's anything more we can do.

Pros: We use our SimpleTexting subscription with our ATS system, BrightMove. This is something we had integrated to easily text candidates directly from the ATS. It works great and send communications promptly once you hit send. Customer Service team is great for any issues you may have.

Cons: The pricing bundles for the amount of text messages. I really wish there was a 15,000 message option between the 7,500 and 25,000 text allotment.

Vendor Response

by SimpleTexting on July 17, 2018

We're so glad that SimpleTexting has helped you with your ATS, Eric! We do understand that your message needs will not always match up with our listed plans, especially when it falls between 7500 and 25000. That is why we're more than happy to create a custom plan for you! Please feel free to reach out to our customer support team to get that set up!

Pros: SimpleTexting is simple to use and easy to implement in your marketing and communication toolbox. We use to communicate important upcoming events to our partners. I love that I can import lists and we don't have to use the 555888 sign up feature. I like that partners can respond back to me and if I want to, I can respond back to them.

Cons: Customer Service took about 3-4 days to resolve a problem for us. This is not a horrible lag of time but it would be better to have a 48 hour turnaround time. For those 4 days, we were unable to text and this slowed productivity. Also, I find it odd that all members of this software have the same number of 555888. I know people have to text in with the correct keyword but what if someone from another company accidentally types in our keyword? Does this automatically put them on our list? It hasn't happened yet but I always wondered that.

Overall: Overall, I love SimpleTexting. It's easy to use and an excellent communication tool. Texting is a much more efficient way of reaching partners since email is becoming a thing of the past.

VERY EASY SETUP! we were up and running and sending out messages in a few minutes.

Pros: It makes SMS and shortcodes easy to use and manage. Other software would entail months of setup for a shortcode (but it's more specific / our own) however this one still works pretty much the same way! It's all about convenience and efficiency. Also easy to create and schedule blasts to our clients and hot leads. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS AMAZING. We have never had a chat wait for more than 3 minutes. SOMEONE IS ALWAYS THERE TO HELP OUT.

Cons: The limitations on imports. I still love how quick and easy it is to communicate with customer support so they can increase the limits on our imports but we churn out hot leads fast and it becomes a daily (and possibly tedious future task). we understand the implications of needed consents, but hopefully it can be automated in the future.

Thanks for providing some feedback and leaving a review! We've tried to make it as easy as possible to get started with short code messaging, and we're happy that you've been able to make it work so quickly for your business. Our customer support team is super excited about the shout out, they work incredibly hard to make it happen for our customers.

We're constantly looking at our processes to make our customers lives easier so I've asked our team to look at the import restrictions. To help ensure the integrity of our service, there are some checks in place but I'm sure we can make it a bit easier for you.

Pros: I was recently shown some of the additional features like "Text to Vote" and was so happy to see this was already pre-made and ready to roll with only a little info needed from me. It made our contest a breeze for voting!

Cons: The only thing I can think of is not realizing that each person texting in is more than one text. So when calculating pricing and such, I should have accounted for a couple texts each when determining how many credits I needed. But it's so cheap it never hurt my pocket going over by a few.

Overall: The staff with Simple Texting is awesome! They are very timely and extremely helpful and patient!

Pros: Struggled to figure out the import contacts system, but customer support was fantastic! The layout of the software is very well thought out. Overall, this company was recommended by multiple people I know.

Cons: Getting permission to import CSV files and all of the problems I had with it or a very cumbersome. First of all, when you try to import contacts from a list or CSV file, it asked you to first contact somebody in order to get permission to do so. However the link to contact someone did not work the first time I used it. So I had to go online and chat with someone in order to figure it out. Once I got permission, The program kept telling me that I was getting an internal error message. In the end, I had to end up emailing my lists and files to a customer support member in order to have him add them into the system. Someone please figure out how to improve the system of importing files

Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to write a review, Joel. It means a lot to get feedback from our customers! We try to strick a balance between ease of use and maintaining compliance standards when it comes to importing contacts. We're constantly reviewing our processes and we'll look into how we could make this easier for future customers. We're looking into the import issue now and we'll fix it as soon as possible. Happy to have you as a customer and we're looking forward to working with you!

Pros: Overall ease of use and adoption by our customers has exceeded our expectations. Excellent value and has improved our customer service tremendously.

Cons: More visibility into reason(s) why SMS might be delayed by certain carriers when they have internal issues - not really a Simple Texting issue, but something that would make the tool better.

Pros: It does exactly what I want to.

Cons: The online platform could be more comprehensive and user friendly

Overall: These people really went above and beyond to help me set up my code and give us the best deal. They helped resolve a few issues I was having very quickly and were so responsive to my messages through their "chat" service. I've also been very pleased with the platform itself! One thing that I wish we could see is when autoresponder messages have indeed been sent. Right now my only confirmation that my 2week delayed autoresponder is sending is that my number of messages sent (total) for the last week is disproportionate to the number of new subscribers. I think there is some room to develop the user-friendliness of the platform, but in general, it does its job. I wish analytics had more some more abilities regarding how many subscribers and trends across weeks that I can define myself.

Recommendations to other buyers: Analytics could be more extensive, right now it is very basic and doesn't really reveal much. It'd be helpful to know peak times for new subscribers for example.

Clean and simple, just like their name

Caiti - Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to review SimpleTexting! We're really glad to hear that you like how easy it is to communicate appointment times over text. We love saving time where we can too! As industry leaders in SMS compliance, we want to make sure that anyone who receives a text is fully aware of the program which is why we send the compliance message. We'd be happy to chat about how you can communicate this to your customers so they don't opt-out and miss their messages.

We're so happy to hear about the value you're finding in SimpleTexting, Thomas! In regards to that notification, that is sent from a person's phone/carrier and is not something that we send out. SimpleTexting does not charge the people that text in, but standard message and data rates may apply; the same as sending/receiving any other texts on their plan.

We needed a texting solution that allowed us to run a vote that wouldn't break the bank.

Pros: It's simplicity and ease of use within the dashboard is what makes it such a great product. We did have to game the system a little bit to get what we wanted out of it, but in the end it was perfect for what we were looking for.

Cons: The only thing I didn't like was that I had to create a workaround to allow for what we needed it for - we were looking for something where patrons of our show could vote for their favorite of 13 gardens by texting a word to the number. So essentially a text poll, but initiated by the user instead of by us, and instead of sending options, the keyword is on a sign at each garden. So it worked perfectly, we just sort of had to work it out ourselves - not really a con, since it totally worked, haha.

Overall: Allowed us to run a text voting contest utilizing the phones in everyone's pocket instead of at iPad or Laptop stations for a reasonable price.

Pros: Quick and easy to send out SMS. Synced with Mail Chimp. Customer service and support was TOP-NOTCH! Pricing below competitors. I have recommended SimpleTexting to several business owners. I also liked the notes field that I used daily to keep customized member preferences.

Cons: Searching users/members was awkward and did not always seem to work. I would search to see if a member existed before entering them manually. Then I would manually add a member only to find out they had already signed up by texting our keyword.

Overall: Huge time savings! Ease of use. Excellent customer support!

Pros: Very simple to use online application. Their website is clean and streamlined; you simply cannot get lost on their website.

I even received a complimentary add-on. My list of pros could go on, but you get the idea.

Comments: The team at SimpleTexting has been great from free trial through purchase and after implementation. Ease of use is insane as I can tell you my timeline didn't allow for any reading or tutorials and I have successfully been able to get my messages out to my audience with ease.

Customer support through the live chat is quite honestly my best online chat/online support experience. My team got a full return on the cost within two hours and I think my audience will receive the greatest value through our education efforts. Simple Texting is making that possible as we reach our audience where they are. If I have any feedback it is simply reporting and managing the "data" I received through responses or automation. But! Export capacities are on their way in Spring 2017 I hear so I'm sure even that will fall off of my list.

Pros: I love how advanced you are, your website was great with tips in all the right places, love the little example of what my text number and response would look like on a phone.

Cons: I guess I wish I had only signed up for the lowest package. I was just trying to collect emails from a conference and last year since I got 200, I figured i would need the bigger package, but it turns out I just got 25, the limit of the package, so i paid for the month which maybe I shouldn't have. But also, I noticed a few people unsubscribed from it immediately, and didn't actually click the link it sent them, to go to mail chimp and sign up for our email. So I'm wondering what scared them away.

Comments: I spent some time searching for an SMS platform for my Christian ministry and decided to go with SimpleTexting. Boy was I pleased! One of the great features to this program is the unlimited use of keywords. Other programs were charging an arm and a leg so the choice was obvious on that point. After I signed up for a monthly plan I was contacted by a customer service rep. Let me say that this has been the BEST customer service I have EVER received in my entire life. I set up a time to get a brief tutorial and was even able to text my rep with some questions. 6 stars for Customer Service! Finally, I was told about some of the upcoming features for SimpleTexting so I'm glad to know that they are not just a stagnant program. I'm very proud to be one of their clients.

Pros: It is very intuitive - and if you have any questions there's a chat feature that links directly to the company and they help you right there in real time. Text is an outstanding way to communicate with your existing clients AND capture new ones - Simple Texting is effective and is pretty easy to use.

Cons: Bumped into some limitations on adding contacts - but that was remedied via chat within just a few minutes.

Overall: We are able to help set appointments en-mass with our leads who are not responding to calls/voicemails or emails.

Pros: Unlimited Lists

Cons: No iPhone App

Overall: I use SimpleTexting on a daily bases. So much better than email. And the OptIn is so easy. I used to enter email addresses and phone numbers into my contacts one by one. Now it's all automated and much less expensive than I thought it would be.

Simple Texting was the choice for me because of their excellent support and unlimited keywords/lists. SO happy with their service!

Recommendations to other buyers: Add a feature to mark all messages as read.

Pros: The best feature of Simple Texting truly is the one-on-one support that their team offers. Not only did team do a great job explaining the features of the product, but also helped us set up our first keywords and functions to make sure that we were on the right track. Looking forward to seeing the results.

Cons: I haven't had a chance to dive into the software enough on my own to offer ideas on what I like the least.

Pros: The available features are outstanding. The creativity of our Marketing Team has yet to come up with an idea they would like to use text Marketing Software for that SimpleTexting has not been able to accommodate, simply and beautifully!

Cons: There really isn't anything that we dislike about the platform. It has met our needs in every way. The plugins allow for such a dynamic and interactive process to allow our "customer" experience to continue long after they leave our establishment.

Pros: Tested this for a restaurant client and found it to be a great experience. Easy onboarding and some good functionality for the price.

Cons: Product has a good design, we found the web forms useful. Didn't have many complaints about the usability. Maybe a little more functionality in the free plan but overall the app is not expensive compared to other services.

Pros: The dashboard is easy to use and laid out in a simple clear way. Uploading contacts is a breeze so is sending out marketing campaigns. However, the absolute best thing I've experienced so far is the amazing customer service. Sean has quickly and effectively answered any and all of my questions. (There's been several so far with me getting started)

Pros: Pros are that it is easy to send out campaigns. It's easy for customers to sign up. Works just like it should.

Cons: The text sent out to customers when they sign up count toward my monthly limit. You have to keep a close eye on your plan as customers sign up so you don't go over the limit as each text sent when you go over your limit is pricey (would really add up if you had a lot of subscribers).

Overall: Easy to send out campaigns. Easy for customers to sign up. Works just like it should.

Pros: Your customer service - excellent. Also the products works well :) I do prefer the current theme as the new one seemed unstable to me.

Cons: Wish I could buy credits rather than monthly subscription. I also wish I had an app on my phone that I can use instead of having to use a PC, at least review responses. Also reports would be nice.

Overall: Managed to get a group of people to volunteer for something. Before using this system, we were luck to get anyone to even respond.
