Setting Up Call Loop
Step 1: Create a Group
The first step is to create a group in Call Loop. You won't need to select Integration for using text-to-join. Just give your group a title and press Create Group.
Step 2: Create an Immediate Follow-up (auto-reply)
After creating the group you will be prompted to create a followup. You will need to create an immediate followup. This immediate message will be delivered to your contact right after they join your group.
Provider: Select GotoWebinar as your provider. If you do not see it in this list, then you'll need to add the integration from your integrations page.
Event: Select the webinar that the contact will be registered for.
Save Reply As: Select Email Address.
Step 3: Turn Your Followup ON
Finally, turn your followup ON.
Step 4: Purchase and Assign 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.
Assign Your Keyword.
After you have purchased your keyword, you can now connect it to one of your Groups.
Step 5: 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.
Now when someone texts in, not only does their contact information get stored in Call Loop, the contact now gets registered in the selected webinar!
