We love finding ways to make our marketing apps work together nicely and this handy integration with Campaign Monitor; means you can hook up your email and SMS platforms really easily to share contacts and expand your communication.
The clever integration works in two ways; you can pull your contacts from Campaign Monitor straight into your FireText account, or you can collect mobile numbers and email addresses together with one text keyword campaign.
If you are collecting customer contacts in your Campaign Monitor account e.g. using a web form, you can collect additional date such as names or mobile numbers along with your email addresses by adding fields to your web or sign-up form. Our integration means you can ping these straight into your FireText account when collecting their email address so you can start to add SMS to your communication.
If you want to start building a database of loyal customers the integration with Campaign Monitor also allows you to collect mobile numbers and email addresses with one SMS keyword. Set-up a text keyword such as AWESOME and use this as a call to action on your marketing e.g. Text AWESOME followed by your email address to 82228 and receive awesome offers and discount codes! The customer’s mobile numbers will be instantly added to your FireText account and the email address pinged straight across to your Campaign Monitor account – woohoo!
If you want to get smart with the integration; you can go one step further and add an auto-reply to go out instantly when a customer texts in e.g. Thanks so much for signing up, we’ll be in touch shortly with your first awesome offer! This can be followed up a little later with an email triggered from your Campaign Monitor account with a welcome offer for the customer making the whole communication journey flow smartly between both accounts.
