1-1 & Group Texts vs Text Message Marketing
Follow Up Boss calling and texting is designed to be used as your direct business line. Call and text your leads exactly like you always do -- you can even group text! It works just like when you text or call on your phone, except that you do it through the Follow Up Boss app and it's all logged and recorded for you.
To protect your business number’s reputation, drip and mass texting are not included in Follow Up Boss. We want to make sure your most important 1-1 and group texts always get to your hot leads and clients.
Want to set up drip texts, AI texting, or other text marketing? No problem, advanced texting campaigns are available by connecting Follow Up Boss with one of several partners.
All of the partners below can be quickly integrated with Follow Up Boss so you can trigger text campaigns, view texting activity and more.
