Ask and ye shall receive data 💾
So, you’re all set up with your subscribers, you’re sending campaigns, and you’ve even started using autoresponders. What’s next?
With SimpleTexting’s data collection app, you can ask your subscribers to provide the following information:
- First Name
- Last Name
The “Note” field is open to pretty much any information you might be interested in—things like a user’s workplace, neighborhood, favorite dessert, or favorite rock ‘n’ roll band.
SimpleTexting takes the data you collect and stores it in custom fields, which you can use in any future texts.
For example, if you wanted to personalize a message, you could just drop in the First Name custom field:
“Hey %%firstname%%, did you hear the joke about purple people eaters? Never mind, it’s in bad taste!”
