"We appreciated the ability to make it conversational, where guests are asked to reply back with their email and then that information is stored. That’s what set SimpleTexting apart for us."

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 Collect

1. Select the Fields to Collect

This 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
  • Note
  • Birthday
If you decide to create additional Custom Fields, they’ll be displayed as options below the default fields when you set up Data Collection.
2. Connect to a Keyword

2. Connect to a Keyword

Let’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 Message

3. Customize a Follow-up Message

From 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.
