Group Messaging Tips and Tricks

Before sending out a Group Message, read these tips and tricks on how to send a successful campaign.

  • Maximum messaging limit is currently set to 5,000 subscribers.

  • {first_name} and {brand_name} are the dynamic brackets that can be included in group messages, these will be updated with unique customer details for each message. We highly recommend starting group messages with {brand_name}: so customers know who the message is from. Adding {first_name} will help personalise the message 

  • Using emojis πŸ‘ˆ can add visual character, humour and aid brand tone of voice. Similar to capitalisation however they should be used sparingly and can also contribute to high message segment counts. This can become particularly costly when sending group campaigns as every extra message segment is multiplied by the amount of subscribers in the group.

  • The dynamic brackets {link_to_checkout} will be added to the message when a product is added. This will be replaced for each customer message so they have 1-click Ordering with their details pre-filled. 

  • Always add links at the end of a message, as this will give a better preview on customer devices.

  • Before sending to your desired group, send a test message to make sure everything is appearing as expected. We recommend creating a fixed list segment to use specifically for all group message testing containing your own phone number as well as any others you'd like to receive the test.

  • For large groups, the message may take several minutes to send to everyone in the group.
