Powerful SMS software automation tools

Use SMS platform automation tools in our Campaign Builder to trigger events based on SMS activity. For example, set up a trigger in your SMS marketing software that sends an email with a document download to those who replied to your SMS campaign with their interest.

Additionally, you can pre-schedule any campaign to be sent to a group of contacts. Want to arrange an SMS reminder to be sent to event registrants the night before an event? You can schedule it in the digital marketing platform to go weeks in advance, no need to rush around the night before, trying to get your message out. SMS marketing automation to the rescue!

Event Reminders

Automatically remind registrants to attend an upcoming event.

Renewal Notifications

Use the SMS software to automatically notify contacts of upcoming renewal dates.

SMS Software

Use SMS Software to create and personalise SMS messages

Create unlimited SMS campaigns in your SMS marketing software and schedule messages to be sent to your contacts using our SMS software. From event reminders to marketing campaigns, renewal notifications, membership alerts or any other message.

Connect with your SMS recipients by using the SMS software to add personalisation to your SMS campaigns. Insert first names, member numbers, case numbers, or any other data field.

Send branded one-way, or two-way messages

You have the choice of sending one-way or two-way SMS campaigns. One-way campaigns allow you to specify the sender name as your organisation name (rather than a random mobile number) but do not allow replies. Two-way campaigns allow recipients to reply to your messages, however, messages are sent from a random SMS number.

If you would like to send branded, two-way SMS messages, we can take care of setting up a dedicated mobile number that’s yours–and only yours–to use with your campaigns in our SMS marketing software.

What is SMS marketing automation?

SMS marketing automation uses SMS marketing software and SMS tools to streamline and optimise SMS (Short Message Service) marketing campaigns. SMS marketing involves sending text messages to a target audience to communicate in times of emergency, promote products and services, or engage customers. 

SMS marketing automation in this context helps businesses and marketers save time, enhance efficiency, and deliver more personalised and timely messages to their audience. Some SMS marketing platforms even offer bulk SMS  marketing solutions.

Why should I Use SMS automation for marketing?

You should look into bulk SMS marketing solutions as part of your overall marketing strategy because;

  1. SMS automation enables real-time communication with customers, allowing you to send timely notifications, reminders, or updates about your products or services. 
  2. The SMS open rate in Australia is 94%, and 78% read every SMS. In 2020, there were 32.89 million mobile connections in Australia, equivalent to 130% of the population. (Source: Datareportal). 
  3. 96% of Australians use their mobile phone to send messages. 
  4. Many SMS automation platforms integrate with other marketing tools and systems, allowing for seamless data exchange and campaign coordination across multiple channels. 

In Swift Digital’s case, SMS automation is part of the All-in-One marketing automation platform. Swift Digital are also Government accredited, meaning we can work with Government organisations on their SMS strategy. 

What are the best practices for SMS automation marketing?

Best practices for SMS marketing automation include;

  1. Personalising messages using a first name tag for bulk SMS marketing
  2. Keeping SMS messages short and precise (ideally under 160 characters), including a clear call-to-action (CTA)
  3. Send SMS messages from your SMS platform at appropriate times and respect opt-out requests promptly. 
  4. Best SMS marketing automation practices are not to include URLs in your outreach — this is for security reasons due to the increase in cybercrime. 

With Swift Digital, you can also use SMS marketing as part of your wider event management software.
