What is bulk SMS messaging?

Bulk SMS is a term used to describe SMS messages sent from a business to consumers, usually a large list of mobile numbers (which can include international numbers) that are sent the same message content. Bulk SMS is usually sent via an API, but can also be sent online using our Batch Sender. CLX’s APIs and Batch Sender are free to use and simple to set up. Sign up for your free trial here.
