This article will walk you through uploading your MMS media to your EZ Texting account.
Start by clicking the New Message on the left navigation panel. The Send A Group Text Message page appears.
Step 1: Select Your Individual or Group Recipients
Step 2: Enter a Subject Line (Optional)
The first, optional, part of your message is a subject line. The subject line lets you tell your contacts what the message is about, or more importantly, who the message is from. When received on the user's phone, the Subject appears in front of the incoming text message in parentheses. NOTE: Subject counts against your total character count so keep it brief!
Step 3: Create Your MMS Text
- If you’d like to add an image click the “Add Media” button.
- Next, you will be prompted to add your image/media file. Once you upload an image, it will be saved in your ‘Library’. Next time you want to send a text with that picture, just select ‘Pick From Library’. No need to upload it again!
If you add more than 160 characters, the system will ask if you’d like to send the message as a MMS or multiple SMS messages. There is a 1,600-character limit for an MMS Message.
Step 4: Schedule to Send in the Future or Send Now
Set the time to queue the text message for delivery, or you can choose to send immediately!
Why Send MMS Messages?
They say a picture’s worth a 1000 words, and we agree! Using a well-chosen image can make your text message really stand out. Think of all the sizzle you can convey with a great picture or additional text. That said, it’s best to keep your messages short and to the point to retain your audience’s interest.
What Works Best for MMS Images?
We recommend using high quality, relevant images, such as product shots to make your MMS messages really shine. You can get a preview of what the message will look like after you upload it.
Sending an MMS message is a great way to keep your company top of mind. Even if you don't have a special offer or event to talk about, you can always send a greeting to show you care. EZ Texting provides free downloadable templates you can send any time of year.
