PowerMessenger as SMS Bulk marketing

PowerMessenger as SMS Bulk marketing

Would PowerMessenger work as a Bulk SMS Messenger service since a text can be "emailed" to cell phone numbers?

If I send an "email" in the format of (555)555-5555@carrier.net, the person will receive my email as a text. So can I input those cell numbers with the carriers address as the "email" address and include them in a new group and send text alerts in addition to my regular opt in email campaigns?

Looking for an alternative solution to paying for credits via an SMS Marketing service.

Thanks

I dont think power messenger would work for this. Both an HTML and text version of the email are created by power messenger, I dont think the carrier service will relay an incoming message that contains both HTML and text as a SMS message. I think the carrier would block delivery of the message.

yeah you need to use the sms carrier gateways as opposed to just their cell numbers
here's a list of some of them

you may be able to edit their to address to be the way it's supposed to be for sms but you would need to know their carrier

there are ways to do what you want but I don't know of any free services
