Time to get creative! This is where you will write the message to your customers. Here are some things to keep in mind:

- Make sure to follow the 4 golden rules to create a successful campaign

- Use the templates provided to help you get started

- If you're creating your own text, use the variables to input data from the system (customer first       name, business name, review link, etc)

- Keep an eye on the character count and credits per text to make sure you have enough credits to cover the campaign

Section 3: Spread Out Your Campaign

You have the option to spread out sending your text campaign by hour (max 200) or by day (max 500). We recommend erring on the side of caution and choosing a slower rate where possible as this will limit the chance of your number being flagged as spam.
