    clickatell looks nice they have a nice setup
    Have built a couple sms systems in the past but never had the big demand for it due to the costs. I wouldn't even bother going bulk. Using email to mobile number the mobile providers have such low limits and legally be very careful on carrier polices. So you would need to use standard sms and pay for each one sent out. SMS is kind of a mess different carriers have different rules/rates.

    SMS Marketing in today’s Retail Industry

    Today's consumers are a lot more media-wise than those of the past. Gone are the days when a simple advertising campaign would be far-reaching and appealing enough to drive all your prospects in store.

    Instead, we have to compete with the deafening buzz of different media channels and businesses are fighting to be heard. People are looking for more authenticity; brands that share their values, simplify their lives and engage with them in meaningful communication. Retailers that treat each customer as an individual are achieving results, and this is where the mobile phone and bulk SMS marketing enters.

    The adoption of bulk SMS marketing is a growing trend around the globe as consumer spending slows and retailers are forced to become more creative.

    * Over 6.1 trillion text messages were sent in 2010 worldwide, according to a report from the International Telecommunications Union (ITU).

    * The ITU study found that when it comes to a preferred method of contact, 31% of adults would choose a text message, 51% would choose a voice call and 14% say it depends on the situation. 55% of heavy texters, those who exchange 50 messages or more a day, prefer texting to talking.

    * Bulk SMS messages can be targeted directly to the mobile phone of the user. It is capable of reaching 91% of the US population, with consumers on average opening 98% of text messages and responding directly to 26% of them.


    There is no disputing the extraordinary reach and power of mobile marketing solutions. Today, people rarely go out without their mobile phone. Even at home, it's usually within arm's reach. A Pew Research Centre study reported that 4 out of 5 young adults sleep with their phones on or near their beds and many said they’d never even turn their phones off.

    Very simply, there is no technology that is more compelling, universal and immediate - making bulk SMS marketing with GraphicMail mobile a winning solution for retailers everywhere.

    I am also interested in SMS marketing. A lot of my lists include the mobile and home numbers on them. But most of the services that I look into are so expensive to mass send. All of my list are optin and have given permission to send text to them.

    Hey there, I'm new to the forum, but I'd like to chime in if I may.
    I've been using twilio for phone calls and call tracking, they also do sms in bulk at about 1c / msg.
    I haven't used this feature much but I know it's there. The only drawback is that their interface is not very user friendly and mostly geared for the diy's techies.
