With digital marketing becoming the way of the future, we’ve searched high and low for a reliable, cost-saving solution to make SMS marketing more accessible for you to get your message delivered directly into your target’s hands.

New Pricing Structure

The new pricing structure is now a simpler flat rate based on the SMS provider for your region, examples include:

  • USA - $0.06 USD per text
  • AUS - $0.11 AUD per text
  • NZ - $0.12 NZD per text
  • Rest of World - $0.10 USD per text

Please note: Prices are exclusive of any sales tax/GST. Bulk rates may be available if sending more than 2000 SMS messages per month.

Here are some great ideas to get more clients into your gym:
  • Sending SMS to prospects with personalised messages with sign-up promotions e.g. half price first month
  • Offering clients something special for bringing their friend/s along - and something even nicer if their friend/s sign up!
  • Automated booking reminders before classes and one-on-one sessions
  • Sending members an encouraging text when their visiting patterns change
  • Automated birthday messages offering a free smoothie or class
  • Letting members know about new classes, products or services
  • Individual, personalised client contact, such as when a member forgets their watch or towel

  If you haven’t checked it out yet, go into Settings > SMS Templates Setup and play around with some of the custom fields, to make your messages more personal

With our recent upgrade, there are several changes that you’ll notice:
  • Your recipient’s replies will now be sent to the email address that you have entered in Settings > Preferences > Communications, in the section Email Sender.
  • The recipient will be given the option to opt out. If they do this and you send them an SMS again, you will not be charged.
