One of the best SMS softwares available in the market today is Mailchimp SMS Provider. This application enables you to easily send and receive SMS from any location that has a mobile phone connection and also integrates with your web-based and mobile business solutions. In this article, we will discuss how to integrate SMS with Mailchimp SMS Gateway. Before you download and install Mailchimp on your web server or mobile device, you need to create an account first. You can create an account by visiting the Mailchimp website and registering for a free account or creating a free account for your mobile device. When you are already registered as a user, you can already start integrating your Mailchimp account with your mobile application.
After you have already logged in to your Mailchimp account, you can start creating your mobile application by downloading any mobile application development tool that you can find on the internet. Some of the commonly used applications include iPhone and Symbian OS. These tools enable you to build a basic mobile app for iOS or Symbian OS devices. After you have built the application, you can already transfer the files to your mobile device using a USB cable. The only thing that you need to do is to register an email address where you will receive all the messages that your customers will be sending you through your application.
If you are using an iPhone or Symbian OS, you will not be able to integrate your Mailchimp SMS Gateway application with your web application. However, there are certain features that you can use to make it possible for your mobile application to work with your gateway. One of these features is MMS messages. If your application uses the MMS feature, then every incoming and outgoing message that your customers will receive will be formatted according to the subject heading that you have configured for it. You can also add any image attachments that you want to be attached with each message so that your customers will be able to view them through your mobile device.
