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 menu. The Send A Group Text Message page appears.
Step 1 - Select your individual or group recipients. Start by typing in the To field. You can add an existing group, or write in a phone number or name.
Step 2 - Enter a Company Name (optional). The Company Name 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 Company Name appears in front of the incoming text message in parentheses. NOTE: Adding a Company Name counts against your total character count so keep it brief!
Step 3 - Compose 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.
Below the message body new users sending a message to more than one recipient will see an Auto-Append Checkbox that provides the option of adding the unsubscribe message, “STOP to end”, following a message. If you are sending a message to more than 100 recipients, the option will automatically be enabled.
Step 5 - Schedule to send in the future or send now.
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.
