The Text Landing page is a very simple form not too dissimilar from what you might have used within our SMS product.
Enter your message content in the first field, you’ll see that further down the page is a summary of the content advising how many message parts it will take to send your message.
You will need to name your template. This won’t be seen by customers and is for your reference only.
And then you need to say for how long the campaign data needs to be saved. This helps your compliance with GDPR as the Messaging Studio will delete all data relating to the campaign after your specified period.
If you want to attach a PDF file you can check the “Add attachment as link” field
You can then select the file from your local drive and upload it and also customise the URL that will be presented with the message; to include your brand name in the short version of the URL, add it to the ‘branded URL text’ field.
You will need to specify the sender of the message. If you would like to receive a reply, this needs to be a short code or virtual mobile number (more about receiving replies here). If you do not want direct replies to this message, you can change it to a Sender ID which should identify your brand (more about Sender IDs here).
If you want to send your message with unicode characters – emojis etc. – make sure you change the default setting away from GSM to Unicode (find out more about Unicode and adding emojis to your messages).
When finished remember to click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
