With Nookal, Users can send Bulk SMS and Emails to their Clients quickly and easily. Follow the steps below to set up and send a Bulk Message successfully.

In Step 2, select who will receive the Bulk Message. You can send it to All Clients or specify certain Client groups by selecting Clients who had a Service or Clients who had a Class.
