It depends on what your confirmation text is about. If a customer is opting into your loyalty program using a QR code, Keyword, or Sign-Up Form, you can set up an automated confirmation message within EZ Texting. Easy and painless. You can create other “triggers” for automated confirmation messages using EZ Texting’s seamless integration with powerful tools like Zapier, which allows powerful digital tools to connect to each other without the need for a developer. And, of course, you can always send confirmation messages manually, but it’s in the automation that you’ll save time and money.
Appointment reminders are a huge benefit of text marketing. Businesses and customers alike love the convenience and added value of a simple appointment reminder text. You can send appointment reminders manually in the EZ Texting app, but the real value comes when you automate your appointment reminders, which can be accomplished within EZ Texting in multiple ways, including through scheduled messages, recurring texts, drip campaigns, API, or by using our Zapier integration to build reminder workflows.
