SMS Across the World

In today's globalized world, businesses and creators have more opportunities than ever to reach customers and followers worldwide. With this increased reach comes the need to communicate effectively. One way to do this is through international SMS.

With 5 billion people using SMS, we know it's a fast and convenient way to engage with audiences and fans. It's a form of communication that is widely used and understood. Internationally, SMS averages an open rate of around 94% making it a great option for businesses and creators looking to expand their reach and engagement. Subtext has worked with clients across the globe including News Corp Australia who recently won a Kennedy Award for Outstanding Online News - Breaking for their creative use of Subtext during their federal election coverage. 

Compared to WhatsApp

While apps like WhatsApp have become popular globally for personal communication, they still have their disadvantages for business use. Using WhatsApp requires followers to download and use the app instead of receiving messages on the native operating system. WhatsApp only allows you to send messages to 256 contacts at a time. Lastly, the app does not provide analytical reporting or integration capabilities.

Why Subtext?

Subtext is an international SMS platform that operates in any country that supports SMS. We're able to provide local numbers, allowing you seamless communication with audiences anywhere. In addition, we make it easy for you to connect with your audience by allowing you to either host one text channel that has access to your entire audience (domestic and international) or individual channels for each audience. Using our segmentation feature, Subtext users are then able to send geo-targeted messages personalizing the experience for their subscribers while making it seamless for you.

With more and more countries enacting privacy regulations, Subtext has put proper protections in place. Subtext ensures all messages sent are legally compliant. We meet the regulations for CCPA, CAN-SPAM, and GDPR.
