Can I send MMS?
Yes, however MMS is only available when sending to US and Canadian numbers.
Please be aware as well that the mobile carriers are much more restrictive
in letting someone send many MMS messages from 1 long code number in rapid
succession since there is much more bandwidth to factor in when sending
actual images versus just sending regular text. We suggest having multiple
numbers and then rotate through those numbers(using our rotate feature)
when sending bulk MMS. It’s best to distribute the load of your MMS traffic,
so that MMS messages are sent from as many different outgoing phone numbers
as possible to share the workload.
In many cases, clients will use the platform to send new subscribers a MMS
auto-reply after they join the list by texting in a keyword, and then send
these subscribers regular SMS messages going forward. For example, we have
realtors using MMS, but they are using the MMS feature when people text in
a keyword to find out more about a property and the MMS images are returned
in the auto-reply. They then use normal SMS when notifying their list about
updates to the properties, etc…
