What’s the difference between using Barry’s text flash and group texts?

Group texts have a limit to the number of people you can include in the group, depending on mobile carrier and device. With Barry’s blast texts, the limit is… limitless!

Another difference is that in group texts, the message is generic - not customized to the recipient – AND if someone replies, everyone sees that message. With Barry, the reply is private and you can carry on a one-on-one text conversation.

One more difference between Barry and group texts is opting out of future messages. In group texts, if someone leaves the group, they can be contacted again in another group. When using Barry for sending text messages, recipients can opt out easily by replying with “stop” or “unsubscribe”. Barry takes care of updating the status of that record in your data . That database can be exported at any time to update your master CASL compliant list.
