Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. Using EZ Texting’s free personalization tool, you can add custom tokens like a resident’s first name. This way, a bulk SMS for hundreds of apartments can read like a personal, customized text message. As you are composing your new message simply click on the option to add a first name and/or last name and the system will automatically pull into the message text the name/s that are saved in your Contacts.
Yes, if you have an online payment portal or are using property management software that allows you to receive online payments, you can text a link to where the resident can make an online payment. By setting up monthly SMS reminders before rent is due and including a link to the rental payment portal, text messaging for property managers streamlines rent collections to help you track and receive rent payments more efficiently.
Just like email, text messaging is an opt-in activity. Meaning, residents have to expressly give their consent to receive SMS from apartment or building managers. However, landlords can simply build this request for subscribing to text messages into their leasing process, whether in the application or the rental agreement. Additionally, opting in to receive SMS for property management alerts and notifications can be done via a Sign-Up Form on your business website or listing a Keyword and textable number on the resident portal.
If you are already emailing or sending personal texts to residents, you can easily get them to opt in (or subscribe) to business text messaging by sending a shareable link to a Sign-Up Form. In the Tools section of your EZ Texting account, create Sign-Up Forms for sharing and for embedding in a website. Or, ask tenants to text a Keyword to your account’s textable number or even have them merely initiate a text conversation with the textable number. These are acceptable forms of consent to receive property management text messaging.
