The FCC implemented the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (the “TCPA”) adopted rules, including prohibiting the initiation of telephone calls (other than a call made for emergency purposes or made with the prior express consent of the called party) using automatic telephone dialing systems or an artificial or prerecorded voice to telephone numbers assigned to a paging service, cellular telephone service, specialized mobile radio service, or other radio common carrier service, or any service for which the called party is charged for the call.
Log into your account ten minutes after your campaign should have launched. From the toolbar, click on "stats and reporting". For a campaign that is currently running, click on RVM statistics.

You'd get every 'Tom, Dick and Harry' blowing up your phone, asking you every possible question under the sun about who you are, what's this about, what company are you with, how much does it cost, is this a job, etc...?It'd be a complete NIGHTMARE! You and I both know it would be! Well, the SOLUTION is to put automated information between YOU and your PROSPECT. So lets do the same voice broadcast or ringless voice drop to 1,000 prospects on a Tuesday afternoon but this time around, you use your (NEW) sms mobile number as a "buffer" between YOU and the PROSPECT. In other words, they have to go through your phone marketing system BEFORE they can get a chance to talk to you.
There is no other method that comes close to SMS in terms of reach and reliability. And that goes for their open rates as well. Clients can easily skip over a social media or mobile app push notification that appears briefly on the screen and then disappears. Emails are rarely even opened and when they are, it may be long after the event or promotion you were advertising took place.
In a nutshell, mobile devices are arguably the most personal items we own and as (SMS/MMS) marketer building your phone number database in the early stages of your (SMS/MMS) campaign, you need to let subscribers know what they are opt-in for. keep your promise and send only infrequent, valuable text messages. Remember to keep delivering value through incentives and your customers will stay opted-in and very eager to receive your next text.
