The keyword signup allows Users to join your VIP List by texting your Keyword to either 844-307-3500 or 866-866-7109.
For example, if you were a pizza shop your keyword might be “PIZZA”. Whenever a User texts the word PIZZA to 844-307-3500 or 866-866-7109 they are automatically added to your VIP list.
New Subscribers are auto-sent your custom “Welcome Message” and are also invited to download the CONNECTLocal app. When Subscribers download the app they receive better access to their community and you are able to send them in-app messages for FREE!
There will be times during the course of the work day that you will be unable to immediately respond to new customer messages.
In those cases, you can set the “Pause” feature to manage your incoming messages and automatically send Users a custom “Unavailable” message. Your custom message let’s users know you have received their message and you intend to reply back soon.
Reasons we can’t text most businesses include business owners do not want to give out their personal phone number or carry two different phones.
MobileCONNECT keeps your personal phone number private. When you send customers a text message it is processed through our system and delivered from a phone number in our pool. When the User responds, our system keeps track and relays the message back to you.
This allows you to receive and send messages without revealing your personal number
