Host Sell-Out Events with SMS Automation

What is SMS Automation?

Why Use SMS Automation?

  • Save time and human resources by “setting and forgetting” messaging campaigns
  • Enhance the sophistication of your campaigns for better results
  • Eliminate human error and improve the messaging process

Basic Types of Automated SMS

  1. SMS Drip Campaigns — drive engagement by methodically sending messages. These are distributed at specified intervals based on actions related to your automation system that the user performs.
  2. Reminders — target specific customers or clients for timely reminders of appointments they have made or events they have expressed interest in. Include digital prompts to confirm/cancel/reschedule appointments.
  3. Auto Responses — confirm subscriptions, bookings, and payments instantly when a user takes such an action. Provide further information or links to access such, and dynamically drive further engagement.
  4. Link Tracking — track and trace click-throughs for analysis and future targeting purposes.
  5. Recurring Messaging — send out regular bulk SMS messages at intervals that suit your business. These include event reminders, sales, and B2B communications and can be sent weekly, monthly, or at any interval that meets your (and your audience’s) needs.
