Carriers have been seeing a growing number of spam complaints. Text message marketing for real estate investing is almost entirely cold, and with new requirements to register under A2P 10 DLC, campaigns can be disapproved and placed under very limited deliverability. This may mean the end of texting, as we know it, for real estate. Even if you don’t register, CTIA can stop all your messages from being delivered. And guess what? You still pay for each undelivered message.

 

Watch below the A2P 10DLC: The End of Text Messaging as We Know it for Real Estate Investing.

Learn how GoForClose continues to achieve an unmatched reply rate, even in saturated markets, through personalization and messaging.
