Mass Texting System I am using everyday!

When you send a mass email using Constant Contact, Mail Chimp, etc. you will get an open rate of about 17% based on my experience and I send thousands of emails. According to a report from MobileSquared entitled Conversational Advertising, 90% of SMS marketing messages are opened within 3 minutes. What’s even crazier is that 99% of SMS marketing messages are opened within 20 minutes, plus it is easier to track. That’s why I am using more texting.

There are many mass-texting systems out there and most cost money. After trying many, the system I use costs me $20 per month and I get 1,000 texts with no cost for replies, free outbound calling and unlimited chats. I have found no better deal.

You can start with 500 texts for only $10 and all incoming SMS and MMS messages are free and unlimited and you have an unlimited number of contacts. You also get an equal number of bonus texts with your first order. Month to month, no long term contracts. And, you can import lists in a few minutes. I have imported over 1,000 at a time.

Disclaimer: This is no affiliated marketing company and I receive no money. However, if you use the link below, you will get another 500 credits on the first order. For more information go here.

What are the Side Effects of the Coronavirus Vaccine?

Fatigue and a general feeling of tiredness are common side effects of the new vaccines.
Thousands of COVID-19 vaccines have been rolled out to the public in the past week or so. A few, very few people have reported side effects. What are they?

COVID-19 Vaccine Side Effects The most common side effects of the new COVID-19 vaccines are pain and sometimes swelling and redness at the injection site. I think this is common from many injections. I know that very few of the dozens of inoculations I have received in the military did not leave my arm a bit tender, especially around the injection site.
Many experience symptoms as if they had the COVID-19 virus. Some people feel tired and fatigue, more than normal. A few get headaches, muscle and joint pain. Fever and chills are not rare. Nausea and a general feeling of being under the weather are also seen as side effects of the vaccine.

Most of the people experiencing side effects report that they last around two days on average. Symptoms can be mild to moderate and some report their side effects as severe. Those people having a severe reaction are cautioned against getting the follow-up dose three or four weeks later. Talk to your doctor about it.

COVID-19 Allergic Reactions. and Anaphylactic reactions are occurring in a few people. Increased heartbeat, shortness of breath, skin rashes, and more occur within the first 15-30 minutes of getting the vaccination. These reactions are treatable and go away without leaving lasting effects.
Do not leave immediately after getting inoculated. Most locations will observe those vaccinated for at least 30 minutes to ensure their safety. If you normally carry an epi-pen for allergic reactions, notify those in charge to be vigilant after your injection. Those without an epi-pen may be treated with epinephrine and possibly transported to a local hospital.

All of us are different. It is difficult to predict side effects or allergic reactions, especially when we are in good health. Those with pre-existing conditions are a different story. There are defined restrictions that deny the COVID-19 vaccine to people with some existing health issues. Others may be allowed to take it and are cautioned about possible reactions.
We control our own wellbeing. We decide whether we want the vaccination or not. Many of us are still skeptical about the long-term safety of these mRNA vaccines. When in doubt about a reaction to a vaccination you received, seek immediate medical care, or call 911.
