Answer by Rahul Am:

Hello,

I doubt if you could get this solution for “FREE”. as it would cost some money to both messaging vendors as well as operators.

As you are saying you wish to “Send bulk messages to registered users” there are two possible approaches

Approach 1: You could use TRANSACTIONAL SMS Service to send these messages

  • If the users are registered ( if you could justify this ) and if they have accepted opt-in conditions then using Transactional SMS for sending one time update / notification / promotion shall count fair
  • Messages sent via Transactional route, would also be delivered to users who are on DND ( This provides greater exposure to your campaign reach )
  • You may still want to consult with Bulk SMS Service provider’s in India to check if content you are going to send is legit or not.

On the other hand, If you have acquired user database from public portals / google / or purchased it from third party company, then for a COMPLIANCE Reasons you should always consider below approach

Approach 2: You could use PROMOTIONAL BULK SMS SERVICE to send these messages

  • Messages sent via Promotional route, are not delivered to DND users, thereby safeguarding you from any possible complaints / penalties
  • You may still want to consult with Bulk SMS Service provider’s in India to check if content you are going to send is legit or not.

To get started, I would recommend you to connect with some Reliable Bulk SMS Service provider, who has previously executed campaigns at this scale and has legal background to guide you before launching the campaign.
