Frequently Asked Questions
What’s it going to cost me?
You can be up and running with an SMS marketing campaign with Vortext for as little as $29 per month. What's even cooler is that we offer you a risk free no credit card trial. We also don't lock you into a contract, allowing you to cancel at anytime if you aren't satisfied with Vortext.
Is text message marketing SPAM?
People don’t hate marketing. They just don’t like marketing that does not relate to them. To make Vortext 100% SPAM free, each text message campaign is opt-in only. This means that only the customers that want your messages will receive your messages. No one else, period.
Who decides what goes in the texts?
You are the only person that can decide what your customers receive from your business. You control what to send, when to send it, and how often to send it. Vortext puts the power in your hands.
Does this service cost my customers?
No, it's free for your customers to receive messages. We want them to spend more at your business. They just need to opt-in to your campaign.
I don’t have a lot of time to spend on texting people.
It only takes a couple of minutes on the Vortext website to have a fully functional marketing campaign up and running. Once you have the hang of it, most businesses spend less than five to ten minutes a week managing the SMS campaign, giving you plenty of time to spent with your customers.
What is a short code?
A short code is a four digit number that customers will text your keyword to. It is short and sweet so it’ll be easy for you and customers to remember. Vortext's short code is 4363.
What is a keyword?
A keyword is a word that customers can associate with your business. Usually it will be your business name or a shortened version of it, or it could be the name of a product or service that your business offers e.g. Cake, Beer, Bands.
