MEDIA RELEASE: Don't get caught out with SMS SPAM - Use BurstSMS built in compliance features free!

There has been some high profile cases of brands and their agencies getting stung sending SMS without an opt-out system. To be properly SPAM compliant every electronic message must follow these rules.

1. The message must contain a method to opt-out within the message.

Integrating an SMS opt-out code can be expensive and fiddly to set-up. With BurstSMS simply check the box to add a free opt-out code to your message.

2. You must have consent to send SMS messages to a person.

Use the free BurstSMS opt-in form code to get consent and add recipients automatically to your list. You can also segment your list with custom fields.

3. You must identify yourself within the message

You must identify your company or brand name within the message and also it is courteous to qualify the recipient as to why they have received the message.

The BurstSMS story

BurstSMS was developed by the same team that developed BeamMe.Info. During the development of BeamMe they quickly saw that it was expensive and difficult to get access to an SMS marketing platform that was both SPAM compliant and cost effective to run. During the development of BeamMe, BurstSMS was born to cater for the needs of small and medium businesses using SMS to communicate with their members.

“We saw the SMS marketing products already out there which were pretty much rubbish and an industry that seemed fragmented and user unfriendly so we decided to create a better product.” Said Brad Down, Head of Innovation.
