Audience Republic

Over the last 18 months, we’ve seen a massive resurgence in SMS Marketing across live events globally. In fact, did you know that 90% of SMS messages are read within 3 minutes, along with a staggering 98% open rate?

With rising cost per clicks with Facebook Ads, as well as dwindling open rates across email marketing, it’s time to start diversifying your marketing channels to protect your ticket sales through the use of SMS marketing.

With Audience Republic, you can now start selling more tickets by building your SMS messaging lists and sending highly targeted SMS messaging campaigns that your fans actually want to receive.

Here’s how our SMS messaging platform works...

Create powerful segments that drive ticket sales

Easily create segments using our simple to use filtering system. From there you can target your segments with SMS Messaging campaigns (and also Facebook Messenger and Email Marketing using our all-in-one messaging platform).

SMS segments

You can create an SMS message from the Audience Republic platform in three simple steps:

  1. Select the list of subscribers you want to target
  2. Type in your message and view the preview
  3. Hit send (or schedule for later)
Compose SMS

Build your SMS opt-in lists, fast

You can build your SMS lists with our simple opt-in form which is completely free.

Opt in form

If you’d like to take it to the next level and build a massive opt-in list, and fast, you can choose to use our Campaigns Platform. With our Campaigns Platform, you can incentivize SMS opt ins and collect the mobile phone numbers of your audience.

And rest assured for those in the United States, all methods to opt in to SMS messages are completely TCPA compliant.

Powerful features


Dynamic tags make customizing your mass SMS messages easy. Simply insert one of the following dynamic tags to personalize your message.

  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Plus any field you want!

This works great for sending out unique presale codes, or even unique purchase URLs for tickets! And it works seamlessly with any ticketing platform.


If you don’t want to send out your SMS message at the same time you compose it, you’re able to schedule your send. Just hit schedule for later and choose your preferred day and time.

All carriers, in all countries are supported

Reaching your fans won’t be an issue as we support all global phone carriers, in all countries. From T-Mobile to Vodafone to Optus and O2 we have you covered.
