One page of SMS is equal to 160 characters of normal text. If your SMS goes beyond 160 characters, it becomes 2 pages. And subsequently 3 pages for more that 306 characters, and so on.

 

Do you deliver two or more paged SMS together as a single long message?
Yes, if your message is more than 160 characters it will be concatenated as a long SMS. Note that this feature to some degree depends on how the receiving phone responds to concatenated SMS.

 

Can I send SMS in Chinese,Japanese or Korean Language?

Yes all the languages are supported. However for those special languages, you will need to specify that the message encoding is unicode when sending the message (please note that unicode messages reduces the character limits to 72 characters per page)

 

Can I schedule SMS so that it sends automatically without logging in?

What is a flash message?

Flash SMS is the type of message that appears immediately on the recipient’s screen regardless of what he/she is doing on the phone at the moment. It’s the type of message that most network providers displays to you when you requested for some services e.g to check your account balance. Unlike the normal message, it does not get automatically saved into the recipient’s inbox; although some phones may provide the recipient with an option to save the message or discard it after reading. Flash message costs the same SMS units on ediarosms as normal SMS.

It is mostly useful in emergency situations where you want the person who receives the SMS to read it just once and immediately. For example if there’s a fire alert, or the need for confidentiality like one-time passwords (OTP), etc.

 

How do I change the name that my SMS comes from?

You can send SMS using your personal name, business name or company name as your Sender ID. The maximum length of a Sender ID is 11 characters. Sender ID might get filtered out by some network providers. Please test sender ID before using it. If you are sending in Bulk, you can test it by sending the message with the Sender ID to all your prefered network of your family, friends and colleagues and confirm if they get the message.

There are 2 options to edit the Sender name.

  1. Login to your account, click on your sender name on the top menu – Profile – Default Sender and update the detail to your prefered sender ID.
  2. Login to your account – SMS Sending – Send Message – on the page where you enter the detail, delete and replace sender name with your prefered sender ID.

I saw a negative account balance, what happened?

Because the exact cost/units of the SMS couldn’t be determined before the message was sent, the lowest charge to the SMS prefix per SMS page will be assumed. After few seconds, the real network/units will be determined; and if more units were spent, the excess will be deducted as well. But if your balance was already empty at that point, it will reflect a negative.

 

How quickly are messages delivered? 
We can guarantee that text messages are sent off instantly, within seconds, once we receive a request from you. Messages are normally delivered within a few seconds as well, as long as the recipient’s phone is in the coverage area. We cannot guarantee the delivery time though, since it depends on network conditions, which are outside of our control.

 

What do different delivery statuses mean?
The delivery status of text messages can be always monitored in our Website and using API.

Please find below the delivery statuses that are available online with explanations:

Delivered – the text messages has been sent and the mobile operator confirmed the delivery.
Accepted – the text message has been sent, however the mobile operator has not delivered it yet. Most common reason: the mobile phone is switched off, is out of the coverage area, or the mobile provider is experiencing difficulties. Sometimes the final delivery notification may take up to 12 hours, depending on the mobile operator, which we do not control.
Failed – the text message has been sent but the mobile operator was unable to deliver it. Most common reason: the mobile phone is switched off, is out of the coverage area or the mobile provider is experiencing difficulties.

How to enrol and deliver to DND numbers

How to enrol and deliver to DND numbers 150 150 ediarosms.com

Organisations across the country face a single challenge when they want to send messages to some staff, professional members, students, business partners, customers among others. Many times, the messages don’t get delivered and they just don’t know why. The reason for it is mostly the number is already delibrately or mistakenly registered on Do Not Disturb (DND) list, so messages will keep getting rejected – because it’s suspected to be an unsolicited message.

Many people suffer from the unwanted marketing messages and calls made by the mobile network operators. It gets really annoying when you are busy in a meeting for driving or engaged in some other work when your mobile phone starts ringing or SMS beeps and when you pick up you are showered with credit card offers, wholesale shoe discount, insurance policies among others. So some people get registered for DND to prevent such phone calls or SMS messages been delivered to them.

Organisations are encouraged to register on the Corporate/Transactional route because it ensure all messages get delivered with a unique Sender ID of the organisation regardless of if the number is on DND list. It will also ensure easy trace of the sender; so  that when such message receipient call to complain to telecommunication networks such as  MTN, Glo, Airtel, 9Mobile, NTEL or even NCC about unsolicited messages and needs it addressed. In other words, it will enable easy tracking of every registered Sender ID, if discovered it is used to send unsolicited messages,  the telecom provider can block the DND route or penalise them accordingly.

rUPDATE as Sender name

rUPDATE as Sender name 150 150 ediarosms.com

Recently, few customers are complaining that their account shows rUPDATE when message is sent to their MTN number. So they ask the simple question of “Why am I getting rUPDATE on my phone instead of the Sender Name I used?”

The change of sender name on your bulk SMS to rUPDATE on your MTN number was recently initiated by MTN, especially on MTN numbers that are DND active? Meanwhile amazingly, non-DND active MTN numbers and other networks (Airtel, Etisalat and GLO) will receive your Sender Name.

Interestingly, MTN numbers that are not DND active and other networks DO NOT get rUPDATE. Only DND active MTN numbers mostly. You can call MTN call centre or deactivate DND on your MTN number, click here.

ediarosms.com delivers to all DND numbers when sent through our corporate route; as we can override Do Not Disturb on MTN numbers and deliver to them.

On the other hand, we suggest a solution that will ensure your recipients recognize the Sender immediately they receive your SMS even when they get “rUPDATE”.

As a standard practice for professional SMS message, always introduce yourself in every message content – don’t assume the receipient now you. “We advise you start your MESSAGE content with your Sender Name so that your SMS recipients will quickly recognize the Sender on opening the SMS.”

For instance, after filling in your Sender name as EDIAROSMS, start the content with EDIAROSMS or include your name inbetween the message body: *Your message*. This will still achieve the purpose of customized bulk SMS.

Alternatively, you can consider registering the sender ID, so that it will deliver to DND and others. We have gone a step further to simplify the process of applying for sender name registration for standard, corporate and financial routes so you can easily do it from your dashboard.

Simple tip for Mobile SMS Marketing

Simple tip for Mobile SMS Marketing 150 150 ediarosms.com

Over the years, we know how hard it is to think of ideas and get your SMS marketing plan off the ground. So, we thought we would help you with our tips and tricks of Bulk SMS mobile marketing.

These vary from simple tips that may have just slipped your mind, to some ideas you may never have thought of – whatever we hope you enjoy and benefit from them.

Tell them who you are – It may be obvious to you but your customer may not know who you are, meaning they may not reply or buy from you.

Clear call to action – It is all well and good offering 20% off, but if your customer doesn’t know what to do to get the offer, what is the point!

Check your spelling – Yes this goes without saying, but the amount of times we have seen a message go through with a spelling mistake is unbelievable. Get someone else to check it. A great tip is to read the message backwards, word by word.

Short and to the point – No one wants to receive a long-winded text, make it short and to the point, remember 160 characters equals one message and we suggest to not go over one message.

Don’t leave it too late – It’s never too early to start sending – give customers ample opportunity to absorb and respond to your text.

Timing – Think about when you are going to send the message. Don’t send a message at 2:00am, your customers won’t reply and may get annoyed if you wake them.

Sender ID – Be creative with your sender ID, for example at Christmas why not make your sender Santa Claus – could get a good response.

Be organised – Make the most of the schedule send option and get your message lined up in advance to avoid last minute panic.

Split contact groups – If you have an offer more suitable for a certain demographic, create multiple contact groups so you can target them, meaning you will get a better response rate and not waste money sending to all your customers.

Personalise messaging – Add your customer’s name to the message to make it more personal.

Don’t miss the big days – Make sure you don’t miss those big events, like Black Friday, Valentine’s Day and any other big events in your sector.

Spread your messages – Use the spread send to ensure your site/phones can cope with demand.

Testing – Schedule different offers to see which works best – A/B test.

Ensure links are mobile-friendly – If you are putting a link to your website in the text, make sure your website is mobile-friendly.

Don’t use text speak – Yes, it is a mobile phone but sending a message in text speak looks unprofessional and lazy.

Correct data – The data you have is key, it needs to be up-to-date and accurate. Sending a personalised message to someone when their name isn’t Sally and is a 38-year-old man won’t go down well.

It’s a numbers game – The higher the volume you send – the better the response. It really is as simple as that.

We are here to help – If you are stuck or need some advice, ask us. We have been in the text marketing business for over 15 years, we know what we are doing.

Use the opt-out method – Everyone loves to receive offers, but allowing your customers to opt out means they won’t get annoyed and means you don’t need to send messages to those that won’t get a response, saving you money.

Business SMS is a versatile medium – Use it to your advantage to promote offers, drive traffic to your website, get feedback, inform/notify customers of opening times along with many other ways you could use SMS.

Send at non-peak times – Yes, it’s important to send offers on boxing day and when the sales are on, but everyone will be offering deals then. So why not try sending offers to your customers when they wouldn’t expect a deal, with only your offer to think about you could get a better response rate.

Urgency – Create a sense of urgency by including an expiration date. When a customer sees that the offer isn’t going to be there forever, it will push them into making a purchase.

Analyse – Track your results, how many people have opted out, the click through rate, who purchased. This will give you great data to see which offers work better than others.

Automated messages – By having automated messages you can send customers a message after they have made a purchase, or even better after they haven’t made a purchase in a while, you could entice them back with a great offer.

Consistency – One big mistake is not being consistent with your messages. Create a plan and send out a message every week/month/2 months whatever suites your business the best. Not sending a message in a year then sending 5 in the space of 2 weeks can leave people irritated.

Birthday SMS Manager (Events & Programs)

Birthday SMS Manager (Events & Programs) 150 150 ediarosms.com

Due to our busy daily schedule we often forget very important people, Corporate Events, Days and Programs. For instance forgetting your Boss birthday, your wedding anniversary, client program among others. This regretably can be very costly. That’s why we’ve simplifed the process thru a customised SMS solution.

For the purpose of this write-up birthday which is most constant and routine will be used as an example below, but it can be used for other non re-occurent services easily too.

 

 

 

BIRTHDAY MESSAGE
Family and Friends
Family and Friends are very important in our life – they make life worthwile. Remember them by auto sending birthday message to them. This can be programmed to auto-send to receipients telephone number. All that matters is their Date of birth – telephone no, delivery date, message content pre-defined and text is updatable with different templates. Signature is optional which can be the senders name, phone number or email.

Our SMS Solution can auto send the reminders in advance such as 21days, 7days, 11 days, 1 day to event or/and event day, at no extra cost to individual or group of people – making planning a big event before the date easy.

 

Staff Birthday

Staff get motivated when they discover their organisation never forget them. With Corporate Organisations can even plan better, they can set to get reminder about a staff birthday date few days or weeks before the event – so as to plan for celebration. In addition, you can add some specific phone numbers or group to get copy of the reminder message (e.g Head human resources, MD, Caterer, Event Manager, Cake designer etc) so as to prepare for the birthday of the staff. This way, everybody is aware of the date and can all plan for celebration & gift for the staff in question in advance.

 

Customers & Loved ones birthday

The economy is though, it takes more than just marketing to connect and retain a customer that’s why Small and Large Scale Companies should go an extra mile in making their customers part of the family. For instance, an organisation can celebrate the birthday of the 2nd Child of their Big clients by visiting them in School, buying birthday cake and other to give them surprise.

In other to stop treating the customer like just a customer and more like a a family – get to celebrate their families on special occasions. Celebrate with them & loved one. Enter Customer & wife or Favourite child name, date of birth, telephone and email – to auto send them message, message content.

An email sending option is also added for birthday message as an additional field in case the phone owner is not in country or out of network area. An email template is also been added so that you can definitely be contacted for an event if you have it on file.
