How Howling SMS Marketing Works.

SMS marketing is really simple. Three simple steps...

1. Select a keyword.

When you reserve a keyword, it becomes yours. It’s unique to your business or organization and is what people text to a short phone number called a “short code” to join your SMS marketing list.
When someone texts your keyword to your short code, they’ll get an instant response back that you can easily customize. We call these messages “auto-replies”.

2. Grow your list

In addition to receiving your customized auto-response, when someone texts your keyword, they’ll also be added to your text marketing list.
Now you should promote your list to let people know how they can join. You can create flyers, post info on your website, Facebook, and ask your customers and clients face to face. Maybe even offer them an incentive in your auto-reply for joining your list!
The larger your list gets, the more powerful and effective it will become!

3. Send out your text!

The next time business is slow or you need to get the word out about an event or promotion, just log into your account at and send a text blast out to your list of subscribers. They’ll get it within seconds!

When customers receive your texts and picture messages, they’re prompted to take immediate action, driving traffic to your business when you need it most.

Customers benefit from SMS & MMS marketing because they gain instant access to deals and updates from the businesses like yours that they choose to follow.

To be as effective as possible with your campaigns, it’s important that you follow the basic best practices for text marketing.
