By using branded URLs in your text messages you can grow your brand awareness and improve the trust of your customers. The higher the level of trust towards your links, the higher the click-through rate you can reach.
You can select the domain name section of the URL, choosing between a longer version which is better for visibility, or a shortened one to save characters.

Smart sending makes sure you do not send promotional text messages too often to your subscribers. Texts will not be sent during the allocated hours. You can set smart sending between 0-168 hours. We'd recommend 8 hours as your smart sending period, which means that after receiving a promotional SMS the user won't get a new message for 8 hours.

Avoid bothering your SMS subscribers by setting up Quiet Hours properly.
Quiet hours prevent subscribers from receiving promotional text messages during a specified time frame, usually at night. Texts will be queued and sent out once Quiet hours are over.
