[Zapier Updates] SMS Unsubscribes, Search, and More!

If you’ve been integrating Salesmsg with Zapier, then you’re going to love these new updates we made to our integration.

Before we dive in, you check out the Zapier integration here.

Let’s dive in…

Trigger: New Contact Unsubscribe

Zapier salesmsg new contact unsubscribe

This Zapier trigger will fire when a Salesmsg contact has opted out or unsubscribed. When a contact unsubscribe’s from your Salesmsg phone number, this Trigger will fire in Zapier. 

There’s two ways a contact can opt out of Salesmsg:

  1. A contact can reply STOP, CANCEL, UNSUBSCRIBE to your phone number.
  2. You can opt out a contact manually from Salesmsg.

If you need to update your CRM or other platform when someone opt’s out, this is a great Zap to setup.

Action: Find Contact + Search

Zapier Salesmsg Search

With our new Search Action, you can search to find existing contacts within your Salesmsg account. You’ll be able to search based on first name, last name, email, and phone number to find a contact.

And if that contact doesn’t exist than you have the option to create a new contact.Zapier sms search

Trigger: Select a Specific Salesmsg Number (Received, Sent, Phone Call Received)

We also made an update to the way we setup Triggers.Originally, when a new text message received it would search all numbers across your Salesmsg account to then run the next Zapier Actions

But with our update you can now select which specific phone number(s) you want to trigger when the trigger (new message received, new message sent, new phone call received) fires.

This will give you more flexibility to ensure that only a specific number or group of numbers fire rather than any number on your Salesmsg account.

How to Turn Contacts into Customers Using Text Message vCards

How to Turn Contacts into Customers Using Text Message vCards

Believe it or not… I’m not a fan of robots. 

I love automation and building relationships at scale, but there’s one thing that robots cannot replace and that’s the fact that…

People connect with other PEOPLE.

As Joe Polish always says, “People do business with people they know, like, and trust.”

When I look at the products and services that I buy, it’s usually because of the people in the company.

I bought KSwiss shoes because of Gary Vee.

I buy almost every product from Clickfunnels because of Russell Brunson.

And when it comes to your business, it’s no different.

So when a few customers asked for us to add a way to send vCards, we got to work and made it happen.

It’s essential to create a conversation with your users and to fully engage with as many potential customers as possible. Considering that 89% of users want to use text messages to interact with a business and that over 95% of the world’s population has a mobile subscription, it seems clear that business texting is an essential part of B2C communication.

While the concept is relatively new, it’s not going unnoticed: 82% of marketers plan to increase their spending on business texting in the coming year. So, what do you think?

Here’s 21 use cases for business texting along with templates for you to copy.

Birthday Wishes: Your New Best Friend for Creating Customer Engagement, as Well as an Opportunity to Make Another Sale

Of all the ways you can communicate with customers, texting is their top preference. Doesn’t it make sense to use this powerful communication method to send your customer a birthday greeting?

Dale Carnegie wrote, “Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.” Being wished a happy birthday has to rank right up there, too.

The reason why we even celebrate birthdays is open to diverse interpretation, but nobody seems to argue that the majority of us really do enjoy receiving birthday wishes. The satisfaction extends from relatives and friends even to wishes from business connections. It’s an opportunity companies should take advantage of. There’s even a highly effective way your company can use birthday greetings, and we’ll get to that—but first, let’s dive a bit deeper into the reasons why we love getting birthday wishes.
