In this edition of our visual A-Z of SMS Marketing, we take a closer look at distribution lists, a useful function of our online SMS Marketing platform.

It is no surprise then that they have long been a favourite feature for power users of the fastsms messaging platform.
SMS Marketing distribution lists are a great tool when sending non-personal mass messages such as special offers, event announcements, voucher codes, emergency announcements, staff bulletins, text-to-win competitions and more.
