“Hey dear leave a comment below and let us know how we can improve on our articles!”
So many ecommerce business owners asked me to do an all inclusive review for their business and I promised to do a review but on the condition that I will randomly choose the industry to review next.
So here you have it, today I would be reviewing the latest bulk sms service provider in Nigeria
Owned by one of Nigeria’s most creative business man; Frank umeadi whom is also the co-founder of frank app web technologies, “projectstopic” which is the trending online pedia to get project topics and jobs done and finally “appwebsms”.
I did a comprehensive research on why bulk sms service providers like padisoft, bulk sms 247, multitexter bulk sms and bbn bulk sms aren’t providing customers with the most experience.
I found out that before now bulk sms in Nigeria has been for the sole purpose of squeezing out pennies out of viable customers rather than focusing on what customers really want, how they want it and how to improve the experience they get when they send bulk sms.
Before we venture into the topic of the day, I would like us to take a shallow look at what bulk sms stands for and get a breath taking understanding of how the system functions.

It is used by media companies, enterprises, banks (for marketing and fraud control) and consumer brands for a variety of purposes including entertainment, enterprise and mobile marketing.
Bulk messaging is commonly used for alerts, reminders, marketing but also for information and communication between both staff and customers.
