The next thing to do is to create a website for your bulk SMS business. And mind you the SMS website is different from a blog website or any other website.
You can contact a web developer to create your bulk SMS business website for you, but if you were good at programming or web development you can as well create your bulk SMS website all by yourself without paying a web developer.
And what actually makes bulk SMS website what it’s is the features it carries like, automatically removing duplicate numbers and the ability to integrate your API on your bulk SMS website, areas to allocate credits to save users details.
And your success on this depends on the responsiveness of your bulk SMS website. If you’re the one to set up your bulk SMS website. Here are what you need and the basic steps to take.
5 Basic Steps You Need To Create Your Bulk SMS Website
- 1. Register a new domain name for your bulk sms website.

If you properly take these few basic steps I believe you’ll be able to start something or create your bulk SMS website.
But the simplest way I’ll wish you should follow is “Register with a bulk SMS wholesaler” that’s where I started with.
So, if you don’t have the required capital to go with the first option, then, you’ve to consider the other option I want to show you which is “Registering With A Bulk SMS Wholesaler”
let’s go deeper into this option.

Step Three: Purchase Custom Units:
The next step that’s very important is to purchase a custom unit from Naira4all or your desire wholesaler website/company because you are not into bulk SMS business until you fund your account.

So try to customize your portal outlook and layout to enable customers to navigate easily.
Most importantly don’t forget to add contact information where customer can direct their questions or concerns to.
