Headers and footers can make a big difference to your messages and the engagement they create.
Unbranded messages can often appear as spam, or lose their impact if the matter is of an urgent nature. If your message is in the context of marketing, an opt-out option may be a legal requirement so it's a good idea to create a message footer to include this with every message.
Creating a header and footer in the Conversations window
It's really simple - from a contact or company profile page, click on Conversations to open the window:
Then on the left hand side of the window, just enter your preferred header and footer in the fields provided, and click Update to save:
If you're sending a Bulk SMS though, the process is a bit more involved.
In the SMS window, click on Configuration, and you'll see the fields to create a header and footer for your messages. Once you've done this, click Save Default:
This header and footer will appear for every Bulk SMS you send. You can edit the content of your header and footer at any time.
