How to Create a Broadcast List
What is a Broadcast List?
A Broadcast List allows you to create a dynamic list of people using lists, tags, or contacts, and then use that list to send a broadcast message, run a bot, or start a drip campaign to a large number of people at the same time. For example, you can create a broadcast list called "Team" that includes all the contacts from your account that belong to your "Team Blue", "Team Yellow", and "Team Green" lists and all the people that have the tag "Awaiting Team Color".
Recipients of a broadcast message receive the message as a direct message from you. You can send a broadcast message from a Broadcast List with any service including, Shout to Shout, Customer Service, or your Marketing number. You can include or exclude lists, tags, and even specific contacts. This is the perfect way to message customers, VIPS, and even family members with a custom message or to start a bot or drip campaign.
