The services detailed below will require that you have access to a credit card. If an SMS hub is not feasible for your organisation (perhaps you haven't got a computer or mobile phone, or there is no mobile phone network coverage in your area), SMS aggregators provide a similar service through the internet. SMS aggregators are companies which sell text messages in bulk and deliver your text messages for you. After logging on to their websites you can type in your contact mobile numbers and the message/s you want to send. In addition to generally being cheaper than sending the messages individually or through your own SMS hub, SMS aggregators are able to send larger numbers of messages more quickly, which is useful for organisations with a large target group. We have included details of one of the leading services, BulkSMS, in the toolkit.
