Sending a Voice & Text Broadcast
The "Text & Voice" message type allows you to send a text message to all of the cell phone numbers provided and allows you to record a voice message to be sent to the landlines in one step. While most people prefer texts, our research shows that there are an average of 10% landlines in a given group. This combination message type ensures all of your contacts are able to receive the information you need to get out.
Click the CREATE A BROADCAST tab at the top of the page after logging in.
Give your broadcast a name
Select “Text & Voice” as the Message Type
**Please note: Checking the box to "Send textable recipients BOTH a text and a voice call" will consume additional credits on the Credits plan.
Decide when you want your broadcast to start - immediately or at a specific date and time in the future.
Select the broadcast types include:
Confirm caller ID number - the number contacts will see when the voice call is made.
Confirm text message number
Decide who you want to receive this message. You have three options:
- Add Contacts - will add numbers that are saved from your CONTACTS section
- Upload - allows you to upload a file
- Add Individually - provides a form to enter numbers in manually
** Please note: Call-Em-All is only able to send text messages to textable numbers (cell phones). We are not able to send texts to landlines.
Decide what voice message you'd like to send. You have three options:
- Record a new message (most common)
- Upload an Audio File
- Select from Audio Library (allows you to select from previously saved or most recently used audio)
Enter your text messages in the text box. Messages that are 160 characters or less require one credit per recipient. Messages that are more than 160 characters will use an additional credit per recipient.
