What are the benefits of integrating our SMS with SoCast?

Integrating your SMS service with SoCast will allow you to monitor and respond to SMS messages directly from the SoCast Platform. SMS messages can also be publicly displayed in our Activity Stream tool, allowing for interaction between your website / app visitors and your on-air talent.

For many radio stations SMS messages are a great source for both on-air and digital material. Ask your listeners to text in breaking news, or respond to on-air discussions, send in song requests, birthday shout-outs, anniversaries + more.

Radio talent also often do live-to-air events or participate in the community. SMS messaging allows your listeners to share photos and create buzz around a specific sponsor or event.
