What is an MMS Message Service?

Simple Summary

MMS stands for Multimedia Messaging Service. Using MMS, you can send content in the form of pictures, videos, and audio. MMS marketing is perfect for boosting customer engagement and continues to grow in popularity. Almost half of the world’s population carries a smartphone, so now is a great time to start using media to enhance the way you communicate with your audience.
