Can you recommend alternatives to Twilio for mass texting a membership site?
I have a travel membership website. People sign up to receive travel deals via texts. If the deal is of interest they click on the site for details.
I signed up with Twilio to send only texts from my website. Twilio and TMobile are having an issue so their resolve is each TMobile customer who signs up, call to unblock (this is not an acceptable business solution). Other carriers were receiving fine.
Are you aware of any optional services to switch to?
My members prefer text over email as travel deals go quickly. I didn't think this would be so difficult, thanks for any insight.
Hi Tracey, it's probably not a general issue with Twilio and TMobile, because I use both and have no problems texting. It's most likely your phone number that you are texting from has been blocked and you may need a new number.
I have a site called TextP2P.com which is super easy to use and has all the features you could want for texting your members. I also offer a free 14-day trial if you want to try it out.
