How to use the Campaign Planner
Go to your SMSBump Dashboard, click on SMS Campaigns → Campaign Planner and you now have a quick overview of all important calendar events in the next few weeks.
Each event recommendation comes with a date, a short description, and a few category tags to quickly decide whether it is a suitable occasion for your brand to send an SMS campaign related to this day or not.
When you hover on a date of your choice you’ll see a sample SMS template - ready to be used! Choose an event and click on the Customize & schedule button below:
Let’s say you want to send a Halloween-themed campaign.
Just click on the Halloween event from the Campaign Planner and you’ll be taken to a new tab where you’ll see the pre-built campaign draft - almost ready to be sent.
The campaign name will be pre-filled based on the selected event, so you just have to choose a target audience.
The copy of the message is already pre-set with the Halloween-themed template.
You can leave it as it is, or customize it to better fit your brand voice and personality.
Important: if you are offering a special deal or a discount, don’t forget to quickly set it up from the menu below: simply click on Set up and select the type and amount of the discount you want to offer.
The campaign is scheduled to be sent out on a certain date and time, with a pre-selected “Send based on customers’ timezone” checkbox, but you can always adjust those settings, according to your preferences.
As always, you can send yourself a test message, or preview and send the campaign!
