COMING VERY SOON!
Essenty has the texting platform nearly finished - meaning it works already - but it will not be released until the user interface has been designed and then built. The user interface is a term that refers to the part you will click and interact with to make it work for you.
The focus is on keeping it EASY to use and we plan to release the very best version possible. It will be part of your Backoffice!
YES, the texting platform will be available to the GROW WITH US customers!
It is scheduled to release in the 2nd quarter of 2020.
WHY WOULD YOU WANT TEXTING?
These days a lot of people are using text messaging, and it is rare that a recipient will miss a text. For instance, emails get missed because they go to spam or other inbox folders or even just because the recipient's email provider blocked it.
- Text messaging allows you to quickly reach more customers & business builders while maintaining a personal connection that is always important in "relationship marketing".
- Texting allows you to reach thousands of contacts at once with mass alerts and notifications.
- Texting is the easiest & fastest way to get the word out quickly.
- Texting allows you to send a bulk text to everyone in your filtered contacts, which means one single message to everyone - PRIVATELY or just send one text to one of your contacts.
- Imagine that YL has a big sale and it is time-limited. You could send a quick text out to all your contacts or selected contacts so they know right away!
- Imagine that there is a training class for all your leaders/builders. You could send them a quick text letting them know when & where or even just a reminder. You are more likely to reach them via text!
WHAT FEATURES WILL YOUR TEXTING PLATFORM HAVE?
All the features have not been fully defined at this time (meaning the full scope of what the platform will allow you to do). It is expected it will roll out just one major function at a time.
This will allow Essenty to get feedback and user experience on the foundational operations of sending text messages and processing replies and recipient activity - before additional features are added.
You can be sure that Essenty will be very professional and will strive to be the best. Essenty will LISTEN to your needs!
WE DO KNOW THIS MUCH
- You will have a real phone number.
- You will be able to pick your own phone number based on area code.
- Your messages won't look like spam to your contacts.
- Your messages will feel personal because it is personal.

Training is important and you can rest assured that we will provide top-notch training for using this system and keep the instructions as easy as possible. Everything about Essenty is created with the goal to be easy to use.
WILL YOU ALLOW IMAGES IN TEXTS?
Good question and the answer is YES, but perhaps not in the first release. We want to provide you with the ability to text as soon as possible. Once the texting platform is released Essenty will not stop until it has the functions that our customers need. So you can expect it will evolve as it gets upgrades.
WHAT IS A CAMPAIGN?
A campaign comes in two flavors - Broadcast and Series. A broadcast is a single message to an audience.
A series is multiple messages scheduled to send to an audience.
