We've made the process for setting up text message autoresponders very simple. it can be broken down into two basic parts. Setting up your keyword and then configuring your auto response SMS message. Our platform makes getting this done a snap. Most people are up and running in a matter of minutes. Let's break it down...
A keyword, also known as a "textword", is a word or phrase that people can text to an SMS short code or phone number to trigger an autoresponder text message. A keyword can be more than 1 word but is recommended to be kept short. This make it easy for people to remember when sending it to your number. You can have as many or few keywords as you'd like and each has a dedicated auto-reply associated with it.
Once you have a keyword set up. The next thing you'll do is set up your SMS auto-response message. Again, this is the text message that will be immediately sent back to people after they text your keyword to your number. The standard limit on text messages 160 characters however our service allows your responses to be up to 1,600 characters total if needed. This should give you plenty of space to provide whatever information you want in your message. You can even include a picture to be sent along with your message for greater engagement.
Once your sms autoresponder is saved, you're good to go. People can begin texting your keyword to the number to receive your auto response message. Every time someone texts in, they will be saved as a contact inside your SlickText account so that you can connect with them later if needed.
