As promised I did some research and found a lot of different options for you to build your email list on the go.
To be clear, I’m not referring to sending text messages in place of email. While the services do provide that as an option, my focus today is how we can use this for building our email lists.
If you’re a coach, speaker, or trainer, here are some options for having people “text to join”:
Each are user friendly and offer either a free option or trial so you can test it out before making a final decision. They also work with the most commonly used email systems such as Aweber, Active Campaign, Constant Contact, Drip, iContact, GetResponse, and MailChimp.
Services are limited based on country. Check the Frequently Asked Questions to see if it’s available in your area.
You might be wondering how does this work exactly?
Each service listed allows you to create a keyword. The audience sends that keyword to a shortcode.
For example, if someone were to text DONUTS to 12345. They’d receive your follow up text asking for their email. They reply with their email and voila they’re now on your email list!
If your Thank You Autoresponder is all set in AWeber or MailChimp, etc, they’ll receive your free ebook, video guide, audio training or whatever it is you’re offering.
If you’re interested in adding this to your free offer, grab our Funnel Express Package and I’ll include it as a bonus.
There are so many possibilities with this in addition to including it in your next presentation. I can see using it during podcast episodes, on the back of business cards, maybe even a t-shirt…
You could have a keyword for your ebook and one for your next webinar. Have fun with it 😄
Make it Fabulous!
