Welcome to Call Loop!
You're only a few steps away from getting up and running.
Step 1: Create a Group
Please note that Call Loop is Group based, so the first step you'll need to complete is to "Create a New Group".
From the "Create Your Group" page, give your Group a name. A Group is a list of Contacts. It could be customers, website subscribers, people who text in your Keyword from an event, or whomever.
If you plan on integrating Call Loop with one of our email providers, please check our KnowledgeBase on "how-to" tutorials for their specific integration. The integration is optional.
Step 2: Create a FollowUp (Auto-Reply) Message
The next step is to create your first FollowUp (Auto-Reply) message to be sent to your new subscribers immediately after they join your Group.
On the "Create Your FollowUp" page, give your FollowUp a name and keep the "Send Immediately" option selected. This will set your message to be delivered immediately after the subscriber joins your Group. Click "Continue".
On the next page, you can customize your Auto-Reply message. Once you create your message, click "Create FollowUp" and your FollowUp message will be created.
After the FollowUp message is created, you can test your message that you created, or if it's ready to go, just click the "OFF" button to turn it "ON".
Step 3: Build Your List
There are a few ways to build your Contacts list:
- Create a Webform
You can create a Webform with Call Loop to place on your blog, website, or anywhere on the web to capture Contacts. Learn more about webforms.
- Import Contacts
You can import Contacts to your Group. Although, we have strict rules for importing Contacts, it is a viable way to add Contacts to a Group. Learn more about importing.
- Text-To-Join Keywords
Contacts can text in your Keyword to join your Group. You can purchase a Keyword for $15/month, or if you are on a monthly plan, secure your Keyword by searching for a Keyword and adding it to your account. Learn more about keywords.
- Third-Party Integrations
If you are using one of our integration partners, you can build your contact list by adding Contacts through there. For example, with AWeber, as Contacts complete your Webform, you can add them to a Call Loop Group. Learn more about integrations.
Step 4: Add Credits To Your Account
In order for your messages to be delivered, you'll have to purchase message credits or setup Auto-Recharge on your account. The Auto-Recharge feature ensures that your messages will be delivered to your Contacts. When your credits fall below a certain threshold, we will automatically charge your credit card on file and replenish your credits.
