While having the ability to send text messages to your client/customer list is a proven way to help drive more enquiries and sales for your business, there are often times when you have need to send a text message to just one or two people.

These single or very small list sends can be to work colleagues, or in response to an enquiry. While you can create a mini list, it is far easier to make use of the Quick Send function in the recently updated interface.

So how to we use it?

The simplest way is click the tab and a new interface window opens. From the graphic you can see there are a number of ways to get your message out.

To send to a single number, just enter it (step 2.) You can also search for contacts that exist in existing databases. If you wish, you can also add names to the list we automatically create for you called My SMS Favourites. This can be found in the Contacts tab. These will then be displayed in the dark grey box under the favourites tab.

You can also schedule messages.

But its not so quick if I have to log in to use it.

The good news is you do not need to log in each time you want to use Quick Send. A bookmarklet can be instantly created on your browser toolbar simply by clicking and holding the left mouse button on the Quick Send tab and dragging it to your toolbar. This means you have instant access from your web browser at any time!

Note that the toolbar bookmarklet will not work if your browser window is open on a page there you have logged into a site that needs a password, such as Facebook. You need to be on a generic web page.
