In WPNotif you can define user groups or in other words, groups that can be later used in setting up a newsletter or sending a message. You can even create a user group and then use it as a list building feature like an email subscription form, read more about it here, so this way non-user visitors on your website can fill in the form with their phone number and subscribe to your list with their phone and later you can use that to send Newsletter.
