Next, import your customer database (Mobile Numbers) to the platform via an Excel or CSV from the ‘People’ tab in the corner.
Go to the "Campaigns" page
Click on the “Create Campaign“ button and select the “SMS campaign“
Give a name to your campaign.
Select the sender ID or phone number you want the send message to be delivered from. If you need a specific SMS Sender ID or a number for your business, all you have to do is click the “+ New Sender ID“ button and request a new ID by filling the necessary details.
Now select the customer segment that you wish to conduct your campaign. If you haven't uploaded the customer database or created any person you can get it done in this step as well.
Select ‘Now’ in the Launch Campaign box to launch the campaign at that moment.
But, if you need to launch the campaign in a scheduled time, you can select ‘Later’ and add the date and time that you are expecting to launch the campaign.
