Send a Voice Broadcast

You may send a voice-only broadcast from inside your account or from a phone. This article will walk you through how to create a voice-only broadcast from Text-Em-All's website. 

Before You Begin

You may want to set up your Contact list before sending your first broadcast. You can read about setting up contacts in our support articles, Adding, Editing and Deleting Contacts, and Upload a File of Contacts.

Tip: You can upload a file or add individual contacts directly to the Create Broadcast page in Step 2 for one-time use.
