Viber messages creation

Viber message has significant advantages compared to SMS, including the opportunity of using more text and the ability to add images and active links. In addition, the cost of such notifications is lower, which helps you to spend the marketing budget rationally.

Messages from the Viber campaigns are displayed on the subscriber's smartphone in approximately the following form:
