Blast SMS values and respects people’s privacy. When broadcasting your promotional message using the Messenger (Web) product you have the option of utilising our new opt-out facility which includes a unique code that identifies each recipient you send to and places this neatly at the bottom of your sms.
“Hi John, this is a promotional message about a discount on your next meal at The Pub! Opt-out visit http://rmove.me Code: 2333″
Opt-out is very easy! Just go to http://rmove.me and fill in the boxes appropriately. People who wish to opt-out will be asked for their mobile number, country and unique identifying code. Once the person hits the “Remove Me” button, the person is immediately opted-out of the messaging system. From that point, he/she will no longer receive updates from the specific Blast SMS client.
Blast SMS is an effective sales marketing tool that lets clients send SMS online to thousands of recipients at one time. Bulk SMS marketing has slowly but surely been replacing businesses’ expensive and time-consuming sales and advertising strategies that result in bland response rate. With Blast SMS, you are sure to get the message across at a fraction of the cost.
It’s been a busy 6 months for the Blast SMS team as everyone got their game face on for the revamp of the site and its services. What you now have is an improved SMS broadcasting company with a site that features a new look, a new edge.
Blast SMS still maintains all the wonderful features that clients came to love since 2005. It is proud to keep its high level of personalized customer service and its rock-solid SMS delivery. Clients can expect the same remarkable quality of service from Blast SMS – now loaded with even more features!
Here is what to love about our revamp:
Developers API Toolkit
Blast SMS works hard to bring to you an SMS broadcasting service that is reliable and with an easy-to-use interface. But, we do understand that you have ideas on how to make things a lot easier for you. That is why we came up with our Developers API Toolkit, so that 3rd party developers can create new applications and improve existing ones. The kit has a comprehensive assortment of tools to enable developers to efficiently connect to our SMS gateway and integrate SMS into their site, system or application. With team work between our company and 3rd party developers, we can effectively utilize SMS as a medium of communication.
Show your clients you think about them by sending messages on their most important day. With Blast SMS’ Birthday Tool, you can save a personalized birthday message and schedule it to be sent leading up to or on your client’s special day.
Blast SMS cares for people’s time, privacy and other personal concerns. Being spam-compliant, we offer an optional Opt-out feature for our clients. Each SMS can have an attached opt-out message that says, “OptOut-www.Rmove.ME Code: 185654″. Should your recipients not want to receive your messages anymore, they can opt-out in one easy step. They need only to visit our new opt-out website http://Rmove.ME, enter in the supplied code. Messages are no longer sent to the client who opts out, but the contact information is still in your database. This allows you to effortlessly resume sending messages once you get the go-signal from your client.
Blast SMS uses an international pricing method. The calculation is based on the EURO exchange rate, which is updated daily for the other currencies listed on the site.
We have also upgraded the tools that have been benefiting our clients since 2005. After our revamp, we’re proud to say that we have upgraded our tools:
We have come up with a better reporting feature so you can monitor your messages more easily. Loyal clients will also notice better contact management. Importing contacts into your secure Blast SMS account has now been improved and is easier than ever!
SMS Gateway Platform
We have rebuilt our SMS gateway platform from the ground up to ensure high quality SMS delivery and a more intelligent routing system to improve delivery costs and pass the savings onto our clients using a client-friendly pricing model.

If your nightclub or disco’s dance floor has a large enough space for your staff to play hockey, it is high time you discovered the benefits of SMS broadcasting. Our nightclub- and disco-owner clients have been seeing a great number of guests showing up each day since they signed up with Blast SMS.
Nightclubs and discos pay a lot to promote their clubs. They hire promoters, distribute flyers, print out posters, place radio ads – practically, the works – all that money, time and effort for just one event. And, unless they go all out (which means skyscraping costs), it’s difficult to reach out to a wide clientele, meaning: low show up rate. It doesn’t take a genius to put one and one together and see a considerable loss in profit.
So, what is our solution to this problem? Blast SMS Broadcasting. Blast SMS Broadcasting enables nightclubs and discos to expand their coverage and promote their business in just one go and for a fraction of their regular marketing costs. For you to understand easily, Blast SMS is an SMS marketing tool that allows users to send local and international text messages. Clients can import their patrons details to their Blast SMS account, set up messages (both personalized and generic) and set a schedule on when to send the SMS. What do you get? A quick, cost-efficient, convenient and easy-to-use SMS marketing tool that is proven reliable and effective.

Professionals like lawyers, doctors and dentists conduct their business mostly on appointment-basis. Appointments are set up days, weeks and even months ahead to ensure the smooth flow of their business. However, some people have issues with remembering these appointments that they fail to show up on their scheduled date. It is when people do not show for their appointment that problems arise. What problems do missed appointments cause? One, the fluidity of the operations is disrupted. New schedules would have to be made; some clients may even have to be moved to a different schedule just to accommodate the missed appointment. Two, loss of income. Since most professionals earn by the hour, a missed appointment means income lost for that certain time. Good thing if there is a client who would walk-in to fill in that slot, but what if there weren’t?
How then can professionals avoid the problem of “no shows”? Some have their secretaries send out calls to remind their clients of their appointments. But, even that isn’t fool-proof. Blast SMS has the cost-effective technology to solve that problem: SMS Broadcasting. SMS Broadcasting utilizes the technology of SMS to send out updates, notifications and alerts. Many businesses have turned to SMS Broadcasting to help smoothen their operations. Our clients at Blast SMS have increased their turn up rates since subscribing to our service. If you have been experiencing “no shows” in your business, let Blast SMS help you.
Benefits of Blast SMS Broadcasting:
- Effortless import of contacts. You can get rid of index cards and rolodexes, and import your contacts from your database to your Blast SMS account.
- Save pre-set templates. There is no need for you to compose the same messages time and time again as you can save pre-set templates. Easily edit and fill in those templates whenever you need.
- Send SMS in real time or set a schedule for its delivery. This feature allows you to manage appointments more efficiently. For example: once you have set an appointment with your client, set a schedule on your Blast SMS account for the delivery of your message. Let’s say your clients appointment is three weeks from now. You can set an SMS to be sent the day after you’ve made the appointment, a week from the set appointment and the day before the appointment. This helps ensure that your client remembers the schedule you have set.
- Appointment confirmation. Blast SMS offers a two-way SMS feature that lets your client reply to your SMS. You can be informed should your client not make it to his said appointment. This allows you to adjust your schedule accordingly and set another appointment with another client. This way, you do not suffer the loss of income because of a cancelled appointment.
Why should you switch to SMS?
The majority of people who miss their appointments are within the range of 16 to 35 years old, the same age range of heavy mobile users. If you communicate with them through a medium that they always use, you stand a better chance of yielding positive results. If you were offered a fast, reliable and cost-effective way of protecting your business’ revenue, why would you turn it down?
