There are two ways you can use a group SMS broadcast: Single group SMS and Multi-group SMS.
Re-broadcasting is simply the process of texting a message to a virtual number, then having that number broadcast to a specific contact list through our server. Re-broadcasting is popular among teams. It allows you to send a specific message to a select list, and receive private replies.
If you have multiple groups which you would like to message separately, you can use SMS keywords to define each group. Switch between groups by typing in the keyword as the first word in your SMS. This keyword will also not be shown in the message sent. Group SMS broadcasts are normally created by coaches, captains, managers, and leaders who want to speak to a group of people, and get private responses back.
A single group re-broadcast is as simple as texting to a virtual number. Your number is attached to a list and the message is sent to everyone on the list. Replies however are private, and will only be sent back to the broadcast creator.Free Trial

Unlike re-broadcasting, Group SMS allows text replies to be seen by everyone in the group. This is good for groups which need to see and participate in the message thread.Free Trial
Since all messages go through one number, it is not possible to recognise the person replying. We add the person’s name from the list at the beginning of the message. If there is no name, the last 4 digits of their number will be displayed instead.Free Trial
