How Text Message Data Collection Works
If you’re excited about the possibilities, then we have more good news: there is no manual SMS marketing data entry involved here.
1. Select the Fields to CollectThis feature can be activated on your keyword(s) to collect one or more of the following default fields:
- Contact first name
- Contact last name
- Contact email
2. Connect to a KeywordLet’s say you run a cosmetics brand and want to send messages based on contacts’ skin type. First, create a “skin type” custom field. Then create a keyword (such as SKINTYPE) and ask contacts to text it to your number with their response, which will be saved in SimpleTexting.
3. Customize a Follow-up MessageFrom here, you can automate a follow-up message for contacts who complete the prompt. Their responses are stored in our secure database so you can create Segments and send targeted messages to those segments. You may also export the data at any time or use our Zapier integration to sync in with another app.
