How to Setup Your Time Zone to Schedule SMS Marketing Campaigns

A successful SMS campaign is all about timing. Sending out the right text at the right time.

If you are already using SMS in your marketing and customer service strategy, you already know its benefits and how much it simplifies your workflow.

Knowing that 99% of texts are opened and read within the first 3 minutes allows you to have control over when your recipients will see your SMS.

Based on your customer segmentation and the degree to which you are familiar with them, you can select the most appropriate time to send out your campaigns.

To time your messages right, you need to set your time zone in SMSBump.
 

IMPORTANT: To send scheduled SMS campaigns and launch them within your time zone, we strongly recommend you to make sure that your Profile time zone is set to your actual time zone.
