Now it's time to send qualified traffic to this landing page. Who's the most likely audience to sign up for texts? Your email subscribers.

Send an email to your existing contacts letting them know you now offer text messages.

Be sure to include a button that leads to your landing page.

Alternatively, you could include your text-to-join keyword in the email.
