We have (finally!) launched an add-in for Excel where you can send text messages directly from an Excel spreadsheet.
Best of all, it is 100% free for SMS Express customers.
Here's a screenshot for you:
You have many features at your fingertips, such as multiple placeholder fields (dynamic fields) options, select ANY column for the mobile number, send long SMS (max 459 ch = 3 SMS), and you can customise the Sender ID so the SMS comes from your business name or your number.
You can also schedule to send at a future time, plus it will allow you to send to duplicate numbers.
All you need is an account with us, enough credits to send SMS, and download the software onto your WINDOWS PC or Surface laptop.
After you install the software it will install into Microsoft Excel, and you can open the add directly from Excel. It is easy to use, and free of charge for our customers.
There's more info and how-to videos on our website here: https://smsexpress.com.au/sms-from-excel.html

For example, a reminder from your hairdresser, or your doctor.
Sometimes in the SMS it will have a 'call to action' where you can reply Y for 'yes I will be there' or 'no please cancel', for example.
One of our favourite authors is Bri Williams, who has great insights into business psychology, and she has written a good article here on SmartCompany about Getting Customer Text Messages Right.
