We're excited to announce that you can now integrate with ActiveCampaign to capture email leads from text messages and add them to your lists automatically with Call Loop!
Before setting this up, be sure to integrate with ActiveCampaign first to unlock the features and integrations.
Once it's integrated, then follow these steps...
Setting Up Your Call Loop Group & Follow-Up
Step 1: Create a Group
The first step is to create a group in Call Loop. Do not click Integration as this was done above.
Step 2: Create an Immediate Follow-up (auto-reply)
You will need to create an immediate followup. This immediate message will be delivered to your contact right after they join your group.
Step 3: Create Your SMS Message
On the 2nd step, you will select SMS and create your message which may ask for the field like email address.
"Thank you for signing up! To confirm, please reply with your email address."
This is the list that Call Loop will add the leads to, once an email address is collected.
Save Reply As
This is what Call Loop will save when they reply to your text message.
Step 4: Create Your Thank You Message and Apply Tags
Create the thank you message and as an option, you can apply an ActiveCampaign tag to your new lead when the email address is collected.
Step 5: Turn Your Followup ON
Finally, turn your followup ON.
Step 6: Purchase Your Keyword
You will need to secure your keyword in order for people to start texting in to join. To see if your keyword is available, head over to the Keywords page.
Search For Your Keyword.
Start your search by putting in a word that represents your business, organization, or reason for the keyword.
If it's not available, our system will alert you. This means that someone other Call Loop customer already possesses this keyword.
Purchase Your Keyword.
If your keyword is available, click the link to purchase your keyword. From here, if you have your credit card on file, you can use this or enter in a new credit card to purchase this keyword on a monthly or yearly basis.
Step 7: Connect Your Keyword to Your Group
After you have purchased your keyword, you can now connect it to one of your Groups.
Now, when someone texts in your keyword to the phone number 38470, they will be added to your group.
Congratulations! You keyword is now active!
Step 8: Test Your Keyword
To test, send a text message to the phone number 38470 and the message should be your keyword. It is not case-sensitive.
Here's an example on how to send in your text message...
