Join by Text
Integrate email with text messaging to extend your list, and offer your audience quick and easy way to sign up for your content via their smartphones.
Join By Text is a service that lets people subscribe for your email campaigns by sending a text message. This is especially effective for capturing email addresses at live events, at a physical location, or as call-to-action in traditional media ads such as print, radio, TV, etc.
How does it work?
After someone sends a text message with their email address Join By Text automatically passes this email addresses into your GetResponse account and signs them up under the appropriate list. Then they can be automatically addressed with a welcome email, a series of “Get Started” emails, or any other type of drip campaign.
How to set it up?
To setup a Join By Text account and direct the sign ups to your GetResponse account you will need to retrieve the HTML web form signup code for the list you want to use. Learn more about how to create web forms here.
Along with the web form code you also need to define a keyword your users will text to a five-digit number to sign-up for your list. This should be one word and preferably a word that’s easy to spell.
Finally, you will decide what auto-response text messages the Join By Text system will send back to users who are signing up for your list. The first message will ask for their email address and the second will confirm receipt and give them any other important details, like a link to your mobile website.
All that: the keyword, web form code, and response messages are defined by you at the initial account set up. Once your account is live you will be able to login and change your response messages at anytime.
