How to Personalise Message on iBulky.com v2

Personalise Message helps you to easily send a single customised message to multiple contacts in your address book.

Basically, the key feature of SMS marketing is BROADCAST; sending a single message to multiple recipients at a go. Well, for your information, the lovely days of mass messaging are dying and it’s becoming an act of spamming. Mobile users now hardly read a message with no courtesy or relative reference unless the sender ID rings-a-bell. This act has dropped recipient response ratio drastically.

Personalise Message” was introduced to solve this issue and also to pose a relationship between the sender and the recipient.

In this article, I will be showing you how to send a personalise message with just few steps.
I assume you currently have an account with iBulky.com and you are logged in to follow these steps.

First thing to note:
You need to have the contacts’ details in your address book. This is very important for iBulky to accomplish the personalise process.

Step 1: Select your message type.

Step 2: Input your sender ID in the FROM field.

Step 3: Paste your contacts in the TO field. Note that this numbers must be in your contact address book. The best way to avoid error in this process is to use the address book button and select from the contact listed. If you have your contacts grouped, then you can easily select the grouped contact by using the group button.

Step 4: Select Personalise Message. This is important and lets iBulky identify your message as a personalised one.

Step 5: In the message field, use any of our predefined tags in your message content to get the contact details as described below.

Below is the list of our predefined tags you can use; any exception will make NO replacement.

[NAME] – Contact full name e.g Silas Olatayo
[FNAME] – Contact first name e.g Silas

Demonstration:

If you send a message like:

Happy Birthday [FNAME]!!! [DOB-W] is the day a hero was born. Today [TODAY-W] marks another year of existence, joy, favour and grace for you. [NAME] you are blessed! LLNP. HBD!

to these contacts:

2348030000002,2348050000001,2348080000004,2348090000003

and their respective data in your address book looks like:

Kunle Adebayo 2348030000002 15/03/1980
Bunmi Lawson 2348050000001 06/10/1974
Kingsley Praise 2348080000004 22/01/1986
2348090000003 (Not in Address Book)

Each contact will get the message individually as:

2348030000002 — Happy Birthday Kunle!!! Saturday, 15th of March 1980 is the day a hero was born. Today Monday, 22nd of October 2012 marks another year of existence, joy, favour and grace for you. Kunle Adebayo you blessed! LLNP. HBD!
