Due to text marketing proof of consent laws, phone numbers cannot be automatically opted in to your text message marketing list. There are, however, several ways to grow your list of opted-in phone numbers:
1. Set up Interactive Voice Response (IVR) to prompt callers to join your text program. This ensures that everyone who calls your business will be asked to opt in to receive special offers. Overview: Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
2. Encourage customers you interact with to text "Start" to your forwarding phone number to join. If you are excited about your text program, your customers will be excited too!
3. Place a sign near your checkout counter or post directions on your website and social media. (Ex: Text START to 555-555-5555 to begin receiving our exclusive offers!)
