Get your toolbox ready because we’re jumping right in!
Tool #1: We provide you with a link shortener
What makes this a great tool? A link shortener or URL shortener helps you fit in a URL without eating up your character count. When you send an SMS text message, you only have 160 characters to work with, so you want to make your message short and sweet by utilizing a link shortener. GC Text’s link shortener also enables tracking, so you can see how your link performs.
Tool #2: We provide you with a “send from phone” tool
Why do you need this? The “send from phone” tool is just as awesome as it sounds. It allows you to send group text messages to any of your group(s) directly from your own mobile phone. It really is that simple! You’ll set up a specified “administrator” phone number, then text us your keyword plus your message. We will automatically send your message to all the contacts in the specified group(s) and voilà! Like magic, it’s done and you can move along with your day! We’re big fans of this feature and we know you will be too!
Tool #3: We provide a poster creator tool
We help take the guesswork out of the creative side because that’s what we’re here for! You simply choose a keyword that’s relevant to your business or current promotion. Then, we’ll help you create a captivating poster to display prominently in your storefront.
Tool # 4: You’ll get a QR code generator
You’re probably thinking “QR…what? Is this algebra class?” Don’t worry, there’s no algebra involved. A QR code is short for “quick response” code. With this feature, you’ll create a QR code for a URL that will allow your customers to scan the QR code with any QR code reader on their phone, which will then take them to a specifically linked website of your choice. This makes directing traffic to your website much easier for your customer, which we’re all kinds of excited about.
Tool #5: Carrier lookup tool
What does the carrier lookup tool do? Good question. It allows you to paste or upload a list of phone numbers and see the wireless carrier of each number. (You can paste phone numbers or upload a CSV file, so it’s super simple.) Once the lookup process is complete, you’ll get an email with a CSV file containing the numbers and their wireless carrier. This will allow you to identify and remove invalid (or falsified) numbers from your database as well as separate landline numbers from mobile numbers.
Tool #6: Message forwarding
This one is as simple as it sounds! The message forwarding tool will allow you to get alerts when someone messages you, signs up for your lists, etc. That way, you won’t ever miss an update from your growing contact list!
Tool #7: Integrations
With GC Text, you can integrate or connect popular third-party apps to your account. This means that when someone subscribes to your contact list, their information can be added to an automated email list too. Talk about multi-functional, right?
At this point, your toolbox is overflowing with all of the essential tools you’ll need to build your next best campaign! Have further questions on what you see here? Contact us by visiting our website: http://www.gctext.com/contact-us/
