New Form Builder

We’ve made a couple of big changes this year to help you build your opt-in phone lists with our new form builders.  We’ve turned our attention back to the original subscribe form that you can place on as many sites as you’d like. You may also style the HTML to your liking.

Here’s a great way to grow your audience. We’re happy to announce that we’ve overhauled the “Add a subscribe form” section of your account, to make it easier to create a form, get the code, present your form of double opt-in to the subscriber, and, you can enjoy the results with our auto-responder reply message.

Here’s how to it works:

Login and click on the ‘Subscribers and Lists’ option in the top navigation. Create a ‘New List’ or manage lists you’ve already created. You’ll see a new category on the right called “Signup Form.”

Next add a new Keyword ‘Y’ with the following information

It is important to note that when a user initially signs up by any means other than from a mobile handset, a double opt-in process is required. A compliant message flow should look like the example below:

Your Message: Text Y or Yes to join {Campaign Name} {Description} Alerts. Msg&data rates may apply. {Message frequency} Reply HELP for help, STOP to cancel.

Once the end user clicks Yes or Y you’re good to text to that list. You can see all responses by viewing ‘All Responses’ from your keyword list. You can even download them all and sort by those who have double opted in!

Another great new FREE feature we’ve recently added is the ability for you to receive an email (including the subscribers phone number) every time someone replies to your keyword. This feature has been incredibly powerful for those who wish to click and call a potential lead the minute they subscribe to your system. Click Here to see the related post regarding this feature.

Always go for the guidelines based on carrier conditions of texting service, sms, text marketing and other industry standards.

We hope you enjoy!
