II. Start your new SMS marketing campaign

1. Personalized variants

**Please be noted that STOP to opt-out is a required point. In case a customer opt-outs on your message, the system will update the phone status of this person to Unsubscribed and you can no longer send marketing messages to this customer.

2. Select your audience

Move on to select a group of customers to whom your campaign will be sent to. You can choose an available group or create a new group by filtering your audience.

Make a quick check on your current SMS credits to ensure that you have enough money to run the flows.

Click on 'TOP UP' at the top bar > you will be taken directly to the SMS credits page where you can check SMS price and top-up your balance.
