What is Text Message Automation?
Text message automation, simply put, is the automatic sending or triggering of text messages to individuals or groups of people with little or no manual intervention. Marketing automation has become extremely popular with brands as it allows them to personally engage with their audience at scale.

Our automated texting service offers several options for reaching your audience. From simple scheduling, to more complex recurring SMS and event-triggered messaging, we provide the ease and flexibility to put your engagements on autopilot.

Ways To Send Automated Text Messages
There are several different ways that you can send automated text messages. Our service currently offers 8 specific features that allow you to put your SMS marketing on autopilot. The great news is that they’re all easy to set up and allow for a deep level of customization.

Automated Workflows
Workflows are automated sequences that subscribers can flow through that create a personalized and tailored experience. With workflows you can send automatic text messages and customize the experience based on the behaviors of the individual. For example, you can send a text with a link and then follow after a period of time based on whether or not they clicked. They are perfect for creating SMS chat bots, collecting information, nurturing leads and more.

Building automated SMS workflows is as simple as dragging and dropping objects onto a canvas and connecting them all together. No coding required. We’re the only automated texting service to offer this type of tool and it’s a total game changer.

SMS Drip Messages
SMS drip messages are texts that send automatically at different intervals after people subscribe to your SMS marketing program. What’s great about drips is that you can chain several together to create a series of automated text messages that send days, weeks, or even years after they initially subscribe.

You can make your drip text messages even smarter by applying what we call “segment filters.” This allows your drips to send only if people match specific criteria you specify. Some examples could be whether or not they provided their name, clicked a link, or even made a purchase.

This is a very powerful feature that can be as simple or complex as you need. Regardless of the complexity, our service makes setting up these automated drips a breeze.

Autoresponders, also known as “auto replies”, are the simplest and most common SMS automation tool. An autoresponder is simply an automated text message that is sent back to a person when they text a unique keyword to a short code or phone number. They are fully customizable and are sent immediately after a keyword is texted.

Autoresponders are typically used to confirm subscriptions to SMS marketing programs or mass texting services. When someone joins a text messaging list, they receive an auto response that thanks them for joining and usually provides some additional offer or piece of information. Some businesses use autoresponders purely to provide information and set up hundreds of keywords that deliver specific responses to people seeking info on specific things.

Scheduled Text Messages
Scheduling text messages is one of the most common and easiest ways to take advantage of SMS automation. Our texting service makes scheduling a breeze. When composing a message, you have the option to send it now, later, or on a regular basis. By choosing to send it later, you are provided with options to specify a date and time at which you want your text message to be sent. You can even choose which timezone your messages are scheduled to send in.

With scheduled texts, you can send appointment reminders, event reminders, stock replenishment alerts, and so much more. It’s a must have feature when looking for a mass texting service.

Recurring Text Messages
Recurring texts, also known as “repeating messages,” are SMS messages that send automatically at regular intervals. Similar to scheduled text messages, recurring messages allow you to specify a time for the message to send but additionally, you can choose to have it repeat in the future.

With this tool, you can set text messages up to automatically send daily, weekly, monthly, or annually. We offer virtually unlimited scheduling options giving you the flexibility you need to put those important SMS messages on autopilot. As an example, you could set up a bulk text message to send to a list every other month, on the second tuesday of the month, at 3:15 PM. The options are endless. You can even combine these messages with our segmentation tools to target only people who meet specific criteria.

Abandoned Cart SMS
If you own or operate an online store, you probably understand how much revenue is wasted due to abandoned orders. People are often filling up their shopping carts with goodies, starting the checkout process and then getting distracted and not completing their purchases. Text messaging is proving to be one of the number one ways to re-engage those lost customers, bring them back to your website and drive them to complete their purchases.

Our service for sending automated abandoned cart text messages is easy to set up and runs 100% on its own. Simply connect to your ecommerce site via an integration or API, configure the messages to be sent and sit back. Your automated text messages will begin sending out to those who leave your checkout flow with links that bring them back.

You can then view the performance of your cart recovery from our gorgeous analytics dashboard. From there you’ll have access to all of the necessary data to ensure you’re getting the optimal ROI.

Text Message Surveys
Texting surveys are a great way to collect input and engage with your audience. This feature allows you to build out a series of questions that people can answer entirely through text messaging. Once built, SMS surveys are totally automated and are a powerful tool for organizations looking to capture ongoing feedback.

Surveys are constructed using three specific question types; numeric response, multiple choice, and open-ended. Each question type expects a response relative to its type which keeps responses streamlined.

All data collected through texting surveys is auto-populated into a beautiful analytics dashboard that breaks down the responses and overall respondent behavior.

Automated Birthday Rewards
Automated birthday text messages are one of the most fun and personal ways to engage with your customers or audience. This feature allows you to send text messages on or a specific number of days before your subscribers’ birthdays. This is another set it and forget it feature that provides great value while requiring no effort whatsoever.

Birthdate collection is also 100% automated as subscribers are simply asked to reply back their date of birth when they join your text messaging list. All information is stored within the system and sends people a customizable text on their special day.
