How exactly do we send promotions out to mobile users, as well as collect (or host) their cellular numbers to be able to send messages to them?

Promotions are sent across social media channels, much like events. Promotion Coupon pages can be viewed on desktop computers or mobile devices.

When viewed on mobile devices they are very much optimized for the mobile devices. We have a page on our site discussing this feature: http://squareberry.com/features/mobile- ... ial-media/

Regarding SMS sending, we will be implementing this feature very soon.

Yes I agree, having an sms function would be very handy and I can not wait for that feature to come out. :)

Hi there, I see the SMS Reminders feature showing up on one of the example calendars here: http://www.stadiagrill.com/events/calendar-2/

I have a couple of questions about this:

- I live in South Africa, and I was happy to see one of our networks (Vodacom) listed. However, when I signup for SMS Reminders, the confirmation code does not come through to my Vodacom phone?

- Will more providers be added in future? The main ones in South Africa are: Vodacom, MTN, CellC

- Who pays for the SMS messages?

This is an awesome feature that I would love to start marketing :-)

Hello,

That confirmation should have gone through for that network. We are looking into it to see what the issue was.

More networks can be added. We just added in MTN and we will look into CellC.

SMS feature is included with Squareberry.

Thanks Andy! Man you're fast - I can now see MTN in the list. Also, you added the country to the network names = nice touch ;-)

It be really cool if you could also add CellC.

Just remembered we also have Virgin Mobile, but in the list there are 3 options labelled 'Virgin Mobile' - which one is for South Africa?

Just regarding the missing confirmation code SMS, I tried with my regular number starting with 071, as well as with the country code prefixed, like this 2771.

Hope that helps with the investigation.

Hey,

So neither of those numbers you tried worked?

I will look into the other network as well as better labeling of the networks we have.

Thanks!

Nope neither number worked - the 071 prefix is for Vodacom numbers.

Hello,

Just wanted to update you on this. We had to disable those networks as options while we figure out a solution to the issue.

Sorry for this slight setback.
