What is a text subscriber list, and how does it work?

A text subscriber list is a group of people who have opted-in to receive SMS messages from a particular brand or marketing campaign. This opt-in can happen in several ways. Usually, it's either through an online sign-up form or by replying to an SMS message with a keyword. Once someone is on your text subscriber list, they'll start receiving SMS messages from you regularly.

What do text subscribers want from brands?

Text subscribers are looking for a few things from the brands they've opted-in to hear from relevance, timeliness, and value. They want to know that the SMS messages they receive are relevant to their interests and that they're receiving them when they're likely to be interested in reading them. They also want to feel like they're getting something valuable from the brands they've opted-in to, whether coupons, discounts, or exclusive content.
