Every SMS message sent from Engage will generate statistics on unsubscribe activity, delivery, soft and hard bounces.
Engage provides aggregated statistics for recipients and delivered text messages. The data is presented in the list view of sent SMS messages as soon as recipients starts to receive the message.
The Delivered panel allows you to act on contacts that have received, or on contacts that have produced a hard or soft bounce on the SMS message as soon as the individual statistics are calculated and visible in the Delivered overview. If you wish to know more about hard and soft bounces, click here.
Status "unknown" indicates that Engage has yet to receive a response or that the message from the responding mobile phone operator could not be interpreted.
How to directly send e-mails to contacts that generated soft bounces on sms:
- Click the Action button below Soft bounces and choose Send email.
- Create an email to send to the selected contacts.
This panel displays the effect of the SMS message. These numbers are only available if transactional data is imported to and stored in Engage. All available timespans are calculated from the moment the message was sent (e.g., one day is equal to 24 hours after message was sent).
- Made a purchase
Contacts that have made at least one purchase since the message was sent.
- Conversion rate
Percentage of total number of recipients that have made a purchase.
- Purchases per converted customer
Number of purchases each customer made who purchased since the message was sent.
- Average receipt

UTM tags in SMS sendouts
Engage has no built in Google analytics for SMS sendouts. It is, however, possible to add the UTM tags manually in links added to SMS sendouts. We recommend shortening the URL with bit.ly to avoid long links.
