EZ Texting makes it simple to communicate with your contacts via SMS Messages.
Group Messaging & Mass Texting
Time is money so make the most of both by growing your market and expanding your reach with a staggering message open rate of 98% and 6X the engagement of email.
- No matter your industry — retail, real estate, automotive, nonprofits, politics, faith-based organizations, and others — group messaging is a cost-effective way to reach your audience.
- Analyze results and replies to boost engagement and drive new marketing goals.
Keywords are like not-so-secret passwords for customers to gain entry into your subscriber list. Subscribers opt in for promos and updates — and you develop a valued database.
- What exactly is a Keyword? You’ll see them in ads prompting you to text "JOIN" or "SAVE" to a textable number. Here, JOIN and PIZZA are the Keywords.
- Once subscribers join, you now have an engaged, opted-in marketing list to whom you can regularly send targeted notifications and promotions.
Dedicated Short Codes
A short code is a five- or six-digit number that subscribers can use in conjunction with a Keyword to opt in to mobile marketing campaigns.
- EZ Texting offers an upgrade for customers to rent a dedicated short code or vanity short code that can be customized, like “vanity” license plates. Because short codes are easy to remember, they are perfect for growing your mobile subscriber list.
- For high-volume senders in the U.S., a free common-use short code will be assigned to you, allowing you to send upwards of a thousand recipients one mass text message.
EZ Texting offers customers their own dedicated, 10-digit Toll-Free Number. Create a recognizable business identity that is as unique as your business and exclusively yours.
- Legitimize your texts, leverage Keywords, and send to one subscriber or thousands. Your Toll-Free Number will become the default line customers or contacts will use to reach you or your business.
- Command the presence of a trusted, national brand — while integrating a suite of advanced features like 1-on-1 Chat, bulk texting, and more.
Track text engagement to measure the success of each campaign with our free Link Shortener. Discover what subscribers engage with the most — then use this data to inspire future growth.
- Less is more when it comes to texting lengthy URLs. Minimize the character count of long, distracting links with an abbreviated version you can track.
- Why stop at using the Link Shortener for just texts? Apply the specially generated link throughout emails, web, and social media platforms.
MMS & Picture Messaging
Let images bring your texts to life. With MMS (Multimedia Messaging System) you can include pictures, GIFs, and both audio and video files.
- Picture and video messaging increases engagement — by over 250% — when compared with traditional SMS text. More engagement translates into more business.
- Feeling chatty? Along with the extra visuals, MMS allows for 1,600 characters to get your message across, instead of the standard 160.
1-on-1 Chat: Text-to-Landline & Textable Numbers
Our self-service 1-on-1 direct messaging feature allows you to send and receive texts using your existing business phone number or a new textable 10-digit number.
- Delight customers with two-way messaging. Make it easier for prospects to place orders and contact you, so that you never miss a sales lead.
- Brand your SMS marketing presence, just as you would your social media footprint.
SafeSTOP Opt-Out Tool
The safety and security of you and your subscribers are always our top priority. SafeSTOP is an easy way to increase text messaging compliance.
- Eliminate the stress of compliance risk and boost consumer confidence with our revolutionary, secure process to opt-out, set preferences, and report unwanted texts.
- Consumers can privately and securely explain why they no longer want to receive messages.
Contacts Upload & Management
Use our contacts management system to easily upload contacts, keep track of communications, and ensure your opt-in list is up to date.
- Import any previously established (and already opted-in) contacts via an Excel or CSV doc, or transfer files to a template we provide. Include additional fields like email, name, or other attributes to use for personalized messages.
- Sort contacts into designated groups, and don’t worry about sending a text blast to multiple groups. Our duplicate checker ensures only one message is sent per contact.
Use our sophisticated Contacts management tools to segment your audience based on personas, purchase history, or engagement level. Then, appeal to consumers with individualized, targeted notifications that are most likely to connect and drive business.
- Organize your contacts into smaller groups that share similar interests, locations, preferences, and more.
- Minimize opt-outs by reducing communications that won’t apply to specific contacts.
Want to stand out from the crowd? So does your audience. Messages that include a first and last name make mass texts seem more personal — with zero extra work from you.
- Personalized marketing generates higher open rates and higher click-through rates. Our data shows that including the recipient’s first name in a text increases engagement by 46%.
- Automatically customize group texts by greeting subscribers by name.
Save time with our free sample text message templates — just customize and send. Use them as guidelines or as inspiration for your own personalized messages.
- Forget writer’s block. We have you covered with starter Default Templates based on industries and use cases.
- Create your own customized templates and save your favorites to reuse in the future.

Use a Drip Campaign to automate the process of nurturing leads, welcoming new subscribers, and educating customers.
- By “dripping” out automated messages at scheduled or automated times, you can keep your contacts’ attention and cultivate relationships.
- Ensure subscribers don’t lose interest by continuing to provide relevant information, which appeals to their specific needs and interests.
Text Forwarding Service
We know how important it is to stay plugged in so our Text Forwarding Service lets you keep an eye on incoming messages — even when you’re not logged in.
- Automatically route incoming text messages to an email address or mobile phone. Convenience is key.
- Receive forwarded texts anytime, anywhere so that you can be the first to respond.
Everyone likes to be popular, especially at work. Keep your team close by — whether they’re in the office or working remotely — by giving your teammates access to send and engage with text campaigns directly through the EZ Texting platform.
- Invite (or remove) team members — and view the status of current invites, resend, or rescind entirely.
- Streamline communications between multiple internal teams — or client interactions where various team members now have the ability to send and respond to specific texts.
Some businesses juggle multiple clients, accounts, locations, and/or franchises and need to be able to send out text campaigns and communications on their behalf. Managed Accounts will put you in the driver’s seat.
- Seamlessly and efficiently handle accounts you manage, building both customer value and trust.
- Capture account metrics and real-time reporting without having to take your foot off the pedal (and disrupt your workflow) by leaving the EZ Texting platform.
