Getting Started With Your Simplified Alerts Trial: Text to Join
Text to Join is the easiest way to add contacts with a trial. It’s as simple as texting a keyword to 64800 (example: TEXT CompanyAlerts to 64800). Use this checklist to assist you with the quick set-up and watch this Getting Started video below to learn more.
1. Set your Organization
Login > Account > Edit Organization Profile
ADD a verified organization name (your FROM name) that appears in each message. Must be 3 letters and keep it identifiable to your subscribers but short to help keep your sms message under the 150 allotted characters.
2. Create a Keyword for Sign-up
Login > COLLECT > Keyword and Online Sign-up Tools
Select Mobile Keywords List, then CREATE to set-up a keyword.
Walk through the wizard; from here you can create a list to contain all subscribers for the trial and adjust other settings (lists appear in Manage Contacts).
Create an auto-response to send to subscribers after they enroll through the keyword. This can include a welcome message and a link (if you choose).
Subscribers can now enroll by texting the keyword you entered – Example: [Keyword] to 64800. You can be notified by email or text when a contact enrolls.
3. Send a Message
CLICK the Lighting Bolt icon at the top of any page.
Fill out the form, agree to terms and send your message. See the results here: Login > Message> Send Messages> Recent Messages
