This is not something you can send out like an email.  You will need to go through some type of gateway.  http://www.smsmatrix.com/?sms-gateway http://americas.clickatell.com/pricing-coverage/small-business-api/  http://www.message-media.com/gateway-services.html http://trumpia.com/main/trumpia2.0.php

Which ever you choose, they will have some type of api that you call from your asp page.  You will most likely buy a bulk of messages or pay some type of monthly fee.

Your other option is to email the phone number.  Make sure you are actually using opt in list.  It's pretty easy to get banned.

there are services which if you are looking for a basic service will take an email and convert it into an SMS - here is one I've just picked from the internet, but there are many more I suspect - http://www.aql.com/sms/email-to-sms/

Hope this helps
