Attentive
Attentive Mobile is great for those who actively want to build and talk to their community. The goal is to send two messages per week to optimize revenue while balancing out unsubscribes. If a client has trouble with content or finding appropriate marketing messages to send, Attentive Mobile might not be a good fit.

It's really well suited for businesses from small to large, and plan options reflect that. It's excellent for keeping customers aware of updates, such as business hours or new additions, and for informing customers of offers. We use it once a month on average to avoid potential spamming.

  • Drafts don't save well, seemed like I kept having to redo the same text because a draft wouldn't save.
  • I want to be able to click and update users quickly, but there were too many steps to add/remove people from lists.
  • The app didn't work if I used google SSO - i couldn't ever get signed in.

We're excited about EZ Texting and what it does for us. We want to get more into automation with campaigns dealing directly with web sales so a more robust solution will likely leave EZ Texting as our event activation partner and only be used during select times of the year.

Very easy to set up flows and individual campaigns. Creating a segment is also very easy and all fields are very intuitive.

I think it is straightforward to use. UX is always challenging, and the platform does an excellent job of making it easy enough to use. However, it's not 100% intuitive and takes just a bit of figuring out, so I gave it an 8 / 10. It's easy enough as is, but of course, it could always be better.

We have never needed to use the system and it be unavailable. They seem to schedule their server maintenance perfectly (at least for us!).

Fast and easy to communicate with. I wish we went over more insights and analytics on our monthly calls with our account manger. This would really give us the push that we need in order to best utilize the platform as a whole.

EZ Texting "gets it"! When I have had something I needed customer service to help me with, they returned my emails and calls promptly. I have a smaller business and they came through as if I was a huge corporate entity. They really care about all sizes of customers!

The most important aspect of implementation was selecting a valuable keyword. When we first started using EZ Texting, we were able to grab a simple, easy word to use to connect people to our texts. That proved invaluable in our marketing and selling people on using the service. If we didn't have a good word, I would imagine it wouldn't have been as successful.

EZ Texting has a much better user interface and better support. At first I wanted to "pay as you go" so switched from EZ Texting to BulkSMS. BIG MISTAKE. After 2 hours of banging my head against the wall, I went straight back to EZ Texting and paid the little extra monthly and it was like light from Heaven shined down upon me

  • Customers, as well as potential customers, do not seem to have any issue, providing their phone numbers for text messages as opposed to receiving countless emails.
  • Upselling items has improved considerably due to our ability to notify customers of new products and specials that we are offering in the store.
