With WordPress plugins, you can enhance your website’s features which will provide this service free of charge. You can also find deals to promote your products through some of these services.

WordPress Text Messaging  Plugin


1. WordPress SMS

WP Sms is our first choice as it supports over 150+ gateways. You can send SMS to numbers, users, and subscribers. One can setup this plugin easily. It allows the reader to submit their phone numbers through a sidebar widget. The blog owner then can periodically send alerts, updates, etc via SMS to everyone at once. You can also import/export subscribers. The Plugin supports WP Rest API and WordPress Hooks.

2. WordPress Text Message

The WordPress Text Message plugin allows visitors to submit their cell phone number in a sidebar widget, to signup for an SMS text notification list. The website owner can then send out SMS text messages to all subscribers at once. If the sidebar widget isn’t used, you can still add people add subscribers from the plugin settings in dashboard admin. This feature is available for businesses who collect cell phone numbers via traditional methods, such as contests, paper forms, sign-up forms, etc.

    vCita isn’t actually a WordPress plugin, but I still think it’s worth including on this list since it’s an incredibly powerful business management tool that comes with SMS capabilities. This is the sort of thing that I think you as a WordPress developer might find valuable for your own business. With the “Business” plan, you can add scheduling, payment, and subscription functionality to your site and then send SMS text messages and even marketing campaigns to customers who opt in when they use those tools.
