Creating Opt-In Keywords and Opt-In Group

Traditionally, SMS campaigns are targeted to those customers who are registered subscribers to your SMS services. You can provide Opt-in SMS to customers to give them an option of subscribing to your transactional/ promotional messages.

An Opt-in SMS generally contains an approved keyword. This keyword will be sent to a 10-digit virtual mobile number. A customer will be added to your group or subscription list, once he/she sends an Opt-in SMS containing your approved keyword to the virtual number.

For this, you need to create your own unique Opt-in Keyword, using which your customers can subscribe to your SMS.You also need to create an Opt-in Group that contains the mobile numbers of your customers who have subscribed to your services. 

Note: You will not be able to add additional numbers to this group as numbers can be added only by receiving Opt-in Messages from your customers who wish to subscribe to these services.
