Looking for more ways to connect with your clients and make them feel special? You can add on the “birthday text” feature to your Mobile Text Alerts (online SMS service) account to send automated birthday texts to your subscribers!
Once this feature is added, you can navigate to your ‘Settings’ tab. Within, you’ll find a ‘Custom Fields’ section. This is talking about the entry fields in your subscriber list. There, a “Birthday” field can be created. Once this is added, you’ll have the opportunity to input the birthday information for your subscribers. There are three ways this can be done:
- You can input the information manually on your Manage Subscribers page.
- You can import a spreadsheet by adding a “Birthday” column to our spreadsheet template (you can learn more about importing a spreadsheet to upload subscribers here).
- Your subscribers can enter birthday information on your sign-up page.
*Many formats will work when inputting birthdates, but we recommend to standardize to mm/dd/yy or mm/dd.
**Don’t worry, these options will not create duplicate subscribers! They will simply update/edit your existing subscribers’ information. Just be sure to match the right phone numbers with the corresponding birthdates.
Next, you can enter an automated message to be sent out to your subscribers on their birthday from your Settings tab on your control panel (under Custom Fields):
Your subscribers will automatically receive this message on the date that is listed for their birthday!
Feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get this feature added to your services. Let us know if you have any questions or feedback! We hope this tool helps you to cultivate even better relationships between you and your clients!
