About Message Wheel

What We Do

Message Wheel is a bulk messaging service. With just a single text message, we give you the ability to send text, photo, email messages or make phone calls to groups of people from your phone using distribution lists.

Targeted Communications

You can improve the communication delivery to your customers, co-workers, friends, and family members. Your distribution lists contain only the recipients you want to send information to on any frequency you choose.

How It Works

1. Create your Trial Account.
2. Create a new distribution list (or use one of the three sample list created for you when your account is created).
3. Opt-In as required. The Opt-In email will be sent to the contact(s) added to your lists. They will need to Opt-In before you can send messages to them.
4. Using your phone, send a text message to the telephone number you are given when you create your account. (See your welcome email)
5. You will be prompted for the ID of the distribution list you want to use. Once you enter it, the message will be queued and sent to the members of the list.

You can manage features and options by logging into your account via www.MsgWheel.com.

  • Photo/MMS tokens apply for each message.
  • Voice tokens apply for each 1,000 characters in the message.
  • Email tokens tokens apply for each email message.
  • Having the ability to share one of your lists with someone else gives you the ability to "loan" your contacts and content template to others. You can only share lists you own.

    You can even share one of your lists with yourself. This gives you the ability to maintain all your contacts from a single list and each shared list will use the contacts without having to keep other lists updated. Using the Opt-In URL allows you to have others Opt-In/Opt-Out of your master list and all shared lists are always up to date!

    Professional accounts have the ability to share lists. Any account can receive a shared list. Each list can be shared multiple times to the same account.

    One feature that may be necessary at times is to refresh the contact list from another list. You can purge the contact list and then import, or just merge the contacts to the existing list.

    Each distribution list created will create a short redirect web URL using www.XFER.ws web site. These short URLs are available for all accounts except for "Basic".

    Opt-In/Opt-Out Short Link
    This URL can be sent to others allowing them to self Opt-In or Opt-Out of a specific list.

    Batch Processing Short Link
    This URL is used to send messages for a specific list. They can be executed using a web browser or issued from your custom or commercial applications. Execution of these URLs will cause messages to be immediately added to the message queue.

    With your Professional Account, you can execute a web URL with a message. This allows you to integrate your own applications with www.MsgWheel.com.

    Each time you execute a web URL with your custom message, it is the same as sending a message to your distribution list from your phone.

    Each list has its own unique short URL that is created using www.XFER.ws web site. A sample short URL is: xfer.ws?123456

    If your token balance equals zero after messages have been published/added to the queue, they will remain in the queue.

    For a Professional Subscription, you have the option of sending email messages using your own SMTP account information.
