Integrate SMS with dotmailer email campaigns

Customise and automate SMS

dotmailer’s Program Builder can automate outbound SMS based on customer behaviour. You can customise your outbound SMS to be triggered by an event or action much like an opening of an email or a click of a link. You can also apply logic that adds decisions and even splits or delays your SMS. Simply drag and drop the Textlocal extension from your Program Nodes into the relevant section of your campaign and configure your text message.

Reach your customers with SMS

Here are a few examples of how sending SMS online can integrate with your dotmailer campaigns.

Send triggered SMS

Send SMS when a user opens an email, or clicks a link. You can also set logic that fires targeted SMS if users haven’t opened their email for a set period.

Use SMS as a reminder

Follow up an email with SMS to remind your customers of a soon to expire offer, booking confirmation or low credit balance.

Customer engagement

Contact customers in their preferred way for a more holistic marketing approach.

Engaging customer journeys

Combine both methods of communication to further increase the likelihood of your promotion, reminder or alert being read.

Quick responses

SMS works well when a quick direct response is needed such as, “call us if you can’t make tomorrow’s appointment.”

Save time

You can send SMS and email all from one platform, saving you time and effort.
