Text Message SMS Plugin


The Text Message SMS Plugin by Biz Text lets your website receive and send text messages (SMS). You can reply and send text messages from your PC through WordPress or from your mobile phone. No Twilio account is needed.

The Text Message SMS Plugin requires an affordable, no-contract, cancel any time Biz Text plan, see our plan at Biz Text Solutions. A Biz Text plan allows you to choose a ‘Biz Text Number,’ to display on your website, allowing you to receive and send text messages.

When your website visitors send you a text, you can reply to those texts through your WordPress dashboard or forward those text messages to one or more mobile numbers. You can reply to texts from your mobile phone and your website visitors will never see your personal cell phone number.

You can also send texts from WordPress to a mobile number that has not texted you first. Your Biz Text Number can handle voice calls too, so you don’t need a landline number, nor do you need to display your mobile phone number to send and receive text messages.

The Text Message SMS Plugin makes it easy for you to display your Biz Text Number on your website. Choose from link or button styles for your texting options, and only your mobile visitors will see the option to text you, your desktop visitors will see your regular website.

Just wow. these guys went so far above and beyond to help with integration and design. I cant say enough good things about them. Thank you so much. I have already had several customers use the feature just since we installed it yesterday afternoon. It helped me obtain 3 in-home sales appointments in that time. It’s much faster and more efficient than if I was using a standard contact form. Dennis, you rock brotha!

I am just learning about website design and I have been looking at text messaging plugins for a while. This plugin has everything that I am looking for. Customers can text me directly from my website and I can send out group messages to my current clients as well. The monthly fee is only $10 for 500 text messages and will replace the current text message plan that I have, which is double the cost for half of the messages. The best part…live customer service. Dennis from Biz Text just spent an hour on the phone setting things up. Absolutely fantastic!
