Creating A Group In gText

Posted 14/06/2011

If you are organising a social event, placing your staff in different categories or organising a school assignment study session, creating a group through gText is important. It’s also important to make sure you information is sent to the correct people in an efficient and timely manner and you will be targeting the correct people, providing them with the correct information and best of all everyone in your group can engage in a group conversation with one another all on a mobile phone. You can see what everyone has been talking about and information will never be misunderstood or lost again.

How do I create a group in gText?

The process is as simple as signing up to use gText!

All you have to do is select who will benefit from the group, for example, if you are a student working on a group assignment, you will put those members in one group. If you are organising your birthday party at a nightclub, you will be targeting your friends who are interested in clubbing.

To create the group simply go to, sign up and once you have signed up you instantly receive 25 free credits where you can start texting right away.
Group types and options:

You can create all type of groups in the gText platform such as public and private. To join a public conversation without obtaining an invitation you can search for it online to join in. To join the group you will have to start your text message as so: “gJoin (group name)” and then send it to gText who will then on your behalf sent it to the group. You can also edit your groups at any time and allow more people in or remove them.

Remember the owner of the group has control! There is an owner-paid and sender-paid option, whereby the owner can broadcast the message again to the entire group and to whom they would like it broadcast to.

The text messages don’t always have to come from the mobile phone. You can send a message to your contact list from the gText website!


Mario’s Pizza shop – Mario opened a new pizza shop and for the grand opening of the store he advertised in the local newspapers “Buy one pizza get one free plus a free drink” for the opening day. Once customers entered the store they filled out a form and were placed on the Mario’s Pizza database to receive special offers in the future. Once the phone numbers were collected, Mario placed them on the gText platform under “CUSTOMERS” and sent out text messages to his customers about special offers. The customers were asked if they would like to join the group “MARIOSPIZZA” to reply with a “gYes”.

John’s Car Care Company was launching a new product. He already had a database where he could send out text messages to customers through gText about special offers. He went to the gText website and created a group “NEWPRODUCT” where he could inform customers who would benefit from this product. He sent the text message to customers to join on 04479 gText (48398), “gJoin ‘NEWPRODUCT’”. Once they had accepted, he sent out information on the product, when it would be released and a special offer to purchase the product. 
After logging in:

Jane's 21st Birthday!

Posted 01/06/2011

Jane was just your typical 20 year-old-girl girl who was studying at university. She is a popular and studious girl who is always the life of the party! She was well aware that her birthday was approaching but as her studies were getting busier and busier, she put it at the back of her mind.

As the days rolled by closer and closer, she was beginning to get excited! Her family and friends were getting excited for her as this is a big milestone for someone important in their lives.
“Are you having a theme?”, “Where will the party be held?”, “What presents would you like?” her family and friends would ask, but they all got the same response, “I’m not sure yet as I have been busy studying”.

The big day was now just around the corner and Jane was just starting to get a nervous excitement about it, with her studies almost behind her for the semester, she started to feel like she had left her birthday party planning all too late.
One night while on the computer, she was trying to design an invitation to send out to her friends and family. This was time consuming as she had spent all day studying and all she wanted to do was relax, it was also going to cost her to send out the invitations and she did not want to e-mail them as it eliminated the personal touch.
Jane decided to take a break, Jane noticed that there was a website her friends were flocking to and were engaging in group texting conversations. She went straight to and within 1 whole minute, she had read all about gText, signed up (received her 25 free credits) and was adding her friends to the platform. There is only One Number to Remember, one number whereby the owner of the group sends out one text message to 04479 48398 (gText) and then gText will send it out to all your friends. “What a perfect way to invite my friends to my party!” exclaimed Jane. Within the next minute she had sent out her birthday invitations to her friends via gText!

The conversations started rolling in. Her friends were talking to her and each other about gText, the latest innovation in group texting, and her birthday party. The only downfall? Because Jane had left the invitations to late and had not discovered gText sooner, everyone else had already made other plans. She was disappointed but still decided to celebrate her day with her family.

Jane’s big day has finally arrived! Today she is 21! In the morning she had breakfast with her parents and siblings and then left to take some books to the library. When she returned the house was locked and assumed her family had stepped out for a bit. After unlocking and opening the door “SURPRISE” was shouted at the top of everyone’s lungs! Jane was stunned! Her whole family and all her closest friends were at her house all there to celebrate her birthday! A surprise party was organised for her by her friends and family. Everyone was able to communicate with one another in secret about it through gText. She was quite shocked to hear that her own parents had found gText and were using it to help organise her party and speak with her friends.

gText helped make Jane’s birthday party a success and with One Number to Remember, it really is the easy way!
