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 do it: Supporting a culture of growth

14 Nov 2017

Recently, I’ve had several discussions about company culture. And here’s a common question: How do you build a culture that supports growth and create a workplace that everyone’s happy being part of?

In today’s world, it feels like the technology changes faster than we can keep up. As technology becomes even more ingrained in our lives, it’s obvious, that for our own good, regulations need to evolve as well. And it’s extremely important that business owners and leaders understand new regulations to adapt in the best way possible.

Scrub customer databases and make SMS more effective

31 Oct 2017

It’s often that we are asked, “what is your average delivery rate in (fill in the blank) country?” People usually expect an answer like, “98%.” Yet cost efficiency and SMS conversion is more important than a percentage number; without context it doesn’t mean anything.

The more important question pertains to how delivery rates are calculated. Let’s point out that there are mobile operators in some countries that do not send delivery reports, or if they do, they are unreliable. Is the delivery rate statistic based on messages sent and the number of messages that received a “delivered" status? That is the most common and brutally simplified way to calculate delivery rate. First of all, in fact, it is best practice to start with clarifying whether or not the mobile number databases contain phone numbers that are deliverable.
