Frequently Asked Questions

Getting started with nightclub SMS marketing can be overwhelming. Below we answer some frequently asked questions.

If you’re starting out with text message marketing for your club, the first thing you need to do is to capture mobile numbers. Text message marketing for clubs can be used to:

  • Organize polls and encourage reviews and feedback.

There are many creative ways to encourage SMS club subscriptions. Here are a few ideas that you can try:

  • Configure SMS subscribe widgets on your website, email newsletters, or social accounts. Make sure you’re promoting irresistible offers to increase subscription rates.
  • Log in to your TextMagic account or sign up for a free 30-day trial.
  • Verify your account by purchasing SMS credit.
  • Navigate to the sender IDs page and click “Apply for Sender ID”.
  • Wait for your sender ID to be approved by a TextMagic specialist.
  • Navigate to your Sender settings, and replace the phone number with your sender ID in the default SMS sending option.
    Please note: SMS Sender ID feature is not available in North America.

    You can segment your audience and send targeted SMS blasts with the help of distribution lists. Here’s how you can configure a VIP list:

    Step #1: Log in to your TextMagic account and navigate to Contacts -> Lists.

    Step #2: Click on “New List” and fill out the details. You can add contacts manually or import them from a pre-defined list.

    Step #3: To test your new list, go to “Compose” and select the new list from your sender options.

    Step #4: Navigate to Services -> Automation Rules. Create a new rule for your VIPs, so that specific contacts are automatically sorted into the list. You can also configure an automated text, letting customers know that they have become VIPs.
