What is it?
Alfa Media SMS is a written message sent directly to all mobile phone users according to predetermined criteria.
How does it work?
- Number of messages:
An unlimited number of messages can be sent. The service can also be set up with a limit on the maximum distribution rate per hour. (Example: If a message is to be sent to 10,000 subscribers at 9:00 AM and the service is set up to send a maximum per hour of 2,000 messages, then 2,000 messages are sent at 9.00 AM 2,000 at 10.00 AM, 2,000 at 11.00 AM, and so on.)
- Time, date and duration:
You can schedule the date and time when the message is to be sent and its validity period.
- Personalized messages:
Each message can be personalized to include information targeting your chosen audience.
- A one-to-one approach can take place since the message is sent directly to subscribers
- Length of message:
The maximum length of each message is 160 characters
Maximum length of the sender ID is 11 characters
How do I select my target?
Two databases can be used:
- You can provide us with your own list of numbers
- You can also target one or several segments of Alfa's prepaid/postpaid subscriber database
Post Campaign Statistics
- The service provides post-campaign statistics: confirmation of the number of messages sent with their date and time, number of messages received, number of failed messages, and the reason why it did not reach the specified destination
- The sending report encloses the status of the SMS, the sender ID, the date, the time, the booking order number and the destination number
