Hey everybody. Thanks for watching. Today, we’re going to show you how to use the autoresponder feature with Simple Texting. To get to the auto responder menu, simply click the “messaging” tab. Click “Auto responders”, then “New auto responder”. What is an auto responder? Basically, it allows you to send a delayed message a certain amount of time after someone joins your list. Let’s say you’re a business, and someone joins your list. By texting them your keyword to 555888. Maybe after two days, you want to send them a coupon automatically to bring them back into your business and turn them into a loyal customer.

Here’ how you do it. The auto responder name is just for your own reference. No one will end up seeing it. Then select the list name. This is usually associated with a key word. Select the delay. Let’s say two days. Then write the body of your message. 20 percent off any purchase. Show this text to cashier to redeem your discount. Click “Save auto responder”, and there you go. You could also use this if, say you’re at a salon and you want to share beauty tips, or you’re a doctor’s office and you want to share health tips. You can come up with a series of messages, say tip one, set if for one week after someone joins your list. Write your message, tip number one, blah-blah-blah. Click “Save auto responder”. You can create a whole series of these so that someone will get a text every week within your tip.

Tip two, two weeks, tip number two, blah-blah-blah. That’s how it works. Thanks for watching.
