In this tutorial, you'll learn how to quickly setup your mobile text-to-join keyword to start capturing phone numbers and emails (optional) from your SMS text messages.
Step 1: Create a Group
The first step is to create a group.
Step 2: Create an Immediate Followup (auto-reply)

Step 3: 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.

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.
