  • Grow your brand awareness

    Sending messages from an alpha tag to a mobile phone is akin to placing a pamphlet in a letterbox. It gets your brand name out there, builds recognition, and makes you top of mind.

  • Send texts from your company name

    Rather than have a random number appear when you send SMS messages, become familiar by showcasing your brand identity in the ‘From’ field.

  • Include opt-out links to stay compliant

    Spam compliance is still possible with one-way text messaging by including a short trackable link to opt-out. Send promotional text messages or updates in a compliant way.

Ways to use

Sending one-way messages from your business name is a perfect way to increase brand awareness, appear professional and improve communication.
