Hey everybody, thanks for watching our how-to video series.

Today we’re going to show you how to create a Text-2-Vote campaign with SimpleTexting. Voting via text message is an easy and innovative way to collect feedback and engage with your audience. You can use it to gauge customer satisfaction, create a poll to find the best picture, or vote on the best karaoke singer.

Let’s get started. Once you’ve logged in to SimpleTexting, go to Apps, Text-2-Vote, and Add contest. You can name your poll. This is just for your own reference, subscribers won’t actually see this.

Select the keyword that will initiate the polling. Now let’s write our poll question: “How much do you love SimpleTexting?” Then, write your answers here, separating them with a return. So, “A little bit,” “A lot,” and “With all my heart.” After that, you write your post-response message, so: “Thanks for voting! We love you too!”

You can even send the results to the participants so they’ll see the current vote count. Click Save poll, and there you go. You can click See results to view the results as they come in live.

Thanks for watching, and happy texting!
