Recap of 2012

- 5 MIN READ - 13 Jan 2013

We took a quick look back at 2012 seeing how Messente has evolved during the past year. Here are a few improvements.

It’s not by far a conclusive list but these are the things we are probably the most proud of.

1. Messente.com has a cool new look. The new design improved the user experience as well as brought about some changes in the user interface. Thanks to everyone who sent us feedback – it has been more positive than we dared to hope for.

2. Improved coverage and quality. Messente can now deliver SMS to over 200 countries which means over 900 mobile networks. We are especially excited about our quality routes to USA and Canada. We promise our delivery quality guys be as busy next year as they were in 2012.

3. Upgraded payment flow. It’s extremely important for us to make topping up your account as simple and seamless as possible. Looking back we really spent a lot of energy on getting it right. We are pretty happy how it looks now and given the feedback we have been getting we seem to be on the right track.

4. We are now giving free starting credits for all new accounts. It is not a very widely used model in SMS messaging but for us it makes perfect sense because now you can take Messente for a quick spin and see exactly how it works before committing to anything.

5. We managed to boost the speed of sending SMS using our API connection 2-3 times. This is especially good news for everyone doing SMS direct marketing but essentially for all of Messente API users.

As said the list above just covers a small part of we did last year. There will be at least as many improvements coming up this year. Thanks for being with us

How we help with the regulations of global messaging

26 Jun 2017

Forgoing the need to integrate network operators everywhere you need messages delivered is one of the main advantages of using a global messaging platform. Each connection includes legalities, which includes reviewing several agreements and negotiating terms, and technical tasks, like setting up the connections. So, a single company going through this process on their own would invest a lot of time doing things that have already been done by a messaging platform. Also, the company would end up with higher pricing from network operators, as it has much less traffic.

Your sales lab time is scarce

20 Jun 2017

In the series about sales research, I touched upon allocating about 30% of your research time on finding new ideas and possibilities around sales tactics. But how do you actually do it and what do you look for?

An open letter to financial institutions from Yuriy

09 Jun 2017

To the bank, credit card company, and investment firm I work with: I trust you. I really do.

If I didn’t, I wouldn’t put my hard-earned money in your hands. While I’m not a Certified Financial Analyst, I am financially savvy, so I understand that we have a mutually beneficial relationship. From a high-level, banks use the money I deposit to sell loans and invest in other financial instruments. Credit card companies make money on interest charges, other fees, and transaction fees from merchants. The brokerage firm makes money through fees on my account. On the other hand, all I expect is that you are honest about your services, provide returns, and keep my money safe.
