SMS on Mac : The Answer is Yes
SMS on Mac – We are often asked whether Fastsms will run on a Mac. So here’s the definitive answer: YES (with a single exception).
The exception is OMS or Outlook Mobile Service which is a module that enables users of Outlook 2007 or 2010 to send and receive SMS text messages directly within their installation of Outlook. This, understandably, will only run on a PC.
All other modules of Fastsms are browser-based or email driven and so will run in any browser or email client on any hardware platform.
- NetMessenger – browser-based 2 way messaging
- Email2SMS – send and receive text messages using any email client (irrespective of hardware platform)
- Virtual Reply Numbers – 11-digit inbound virtual mobile number linked to your FASTSMS account
- Developer Tools – integrate FASTSMS capability into your software applications
So if you Mac users are feeling left out, there’s no need to because Fastsms will provide whatever you need on your platform of choice. And if you want to try out SMS on Mac you can sign up for a free account, with some free credits. Just click here for an easy sign up – no credit card details required.
SMS flies under many marketers radars when it comes to building an inbound marketing strategy. But if Buzzfeed's news app is to be believed, there are days when SMS generates the greatest percentage of shares on that channel, beating out Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and email. SMS share buttons are reported to have been used 4 times more than Twitter buttons. When you consider Twitter has 317 million active users, then SMS marketing has huge potential for a hotel business.
As a small to medium-sized enterprise, you will always be looking for ways of expanding your marketing outreach and public relations efforts without too much additional cost to your company. Chances are your budget is tight and you are limited in the extent in which you can advertise too. That's where SMS comes in.
Marketing for gyms and leisure centres is unlike marketing within many other industries. It's not enough to simply gain a customer and expect to keep them indefinitely. It's important to make every attempt to keep that customer dedicated and interested in achieving their fitness goals to avoid lapsed memberships and cancellations. It's in every gym's best interest to have a loyal customer base that feels supported and encouraged to attend the gym regularly. Failure to do so can result in members who feel it is a waste of money to pay for a membership that they don't use often enough. That's where SMS marketing can make a big difference.
