Supercharge your next marketing campaign by adding a visual element to your message. Send images or animated GIFs, along with up to 4000 text characters with MMS.

NOTE: To send MMS, you must purchase an MMS active Virtual Number for your touchSMS account.

Add Recipients

Compose MMS

  1. Select your Virtual Number from the FROM dropdown (if not already selected).

Once your image is uploaded, you can add up to 4000 characters of text to accompany your image. You can use these to add details of your offer, product or service. Include links to your website, product order or booking pages.

NOTE: Ensure you include an Opt Out in your message accompanying your image.

 

Media Options
There are 2 options for MMS delivery exclusively available on touchSMS – Send via MMS or Send via SMS
Send via MMS – this will deliver your actual image along with up to 4000 characters of text to each of your recipients. Each MMS is charged at 25c AUD.
Send via SMS – this will convert your uploaded image to a clickable short link and add it to your message content. You can then add details of your offer or promotion to the message content also. Standard SMS charges apply when using Send via SMS.

MMS Subject

This short line of text (up to 40 characters) will appear at the top of your text message in bold when your MMS is delivered. It’s a great way to highlight your offer or brand your message. This is a mandatory field.
