Importing SMS Contacts

Already have a list of opted-in text marketing contacts? Easily import your contacts into your new Text2VIP SMS software account.

In addition to importing phone numbers, Text2VIP provides you the ability to include additional meta-data such as customer names and corresponding e-mail addresses.

Why would I include names when importing?

Using Text2VIP’s mail merge feature when sending a SMS or picture/video message provides the ability to address each message recipient by name.

This personalization always goes a long way toward making your customers feel appreciated and special!
