[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.

NEW! How the Salesmsg Pipedrive SMS Integration Helps You Close More Deals

Are you using a CRM that doesn’t integrate with Salesmsg’s business texting application? Are you switching between Salesmsg and your CRM all day, wasting precious minutes that could be better used tending clients or finding leads?

And be honest… is your current CRM kind of a drag? We have some good news for you! We’ve just rolled out a complete Salesmsg-Pipedrive integration.

It’s a complete sales tracking tool that tracks emails, calls, contacts, funnel position, and overall targets. Combine that with all the functionality of Salesmsg, and you’ve got one fiercely smart CRM that can save you a lot of stress. You might even get some of that work-life balance you’ve been hearing about. To help prove that, let’s go through the simple set-up process itself.

Introducing Our Two-Way Text Messaging ActiveCampaign Integration

Introducing Our Two-Way Text Messaging ActiveCampaign Integration

One of the core values of Salesmsg is to “Integrate” and to bring the power of text messaging to other third party platforms. Today, we’re excited to officially announce our integration with the popular marketing automation software, ActiveCampaign.

ActiveCampaign is a fast growing and simple marketing automation platform that brings a email, funnels, and a sales CRM into one unified software.

Here’s the big problem…

If you use ActiveCampaign and have tried their internal text message system, you’ve probably noticed one of it’s big glaring problems: you can ONLY send outbound texts.

So when people reply to those texts, well… you never get the replies. This leaves you with no way to respond and your customers waiting to hear back from you.

Our deep integration with ActiveCampaign allows users to integrate Salesmsg’s two-way texting messaging software into their existing Automation campaigns to send and receive text messages from real local numbers.

We’ve gone deep with ActiveCampaign to give you some amazing texting capabilities. So once you integrate your ActiveCampaign account with Salesmsg, here’s some of the great unlocked features you’ll have access to.

Automate Your Outbound Texts Messages (Workflows)

ActiveCampaign automation

Using ActiveCampaigns “Automations” and Salesmsg’s “Workflows”, you can easily create and personalize your text messages to add to your existing campaigns to send to your contacts.

From Salesmsg, you can insert merge fields and personalize your text messages based off your ActiveCampaign contact data.

Reply to Your Contacts in Real-Time

When people reply to your text messages, you can easily respond to them from within your Salesmsg account in real-time. To your contacts, they receive a text message like from any other 10-digit number and you simply respond to their text just like you would any text.

Create Canned Messages for Faster Replies

ActiveCampaign SMS

Using Canned Messages, you can easily insert a pre-written message, along with merge fields, to quickly create, personalize, and send your texts. These will save you a lot of time!

Plus, as the admin you can create Canned Messages for your whole team to use. Create, edit, and deploy to your entire organization.

Instantly Merge in Custom Field Data in Replies

From the conversation, you can also merge in your contacts data that exists in ActiveCampaign straight into your text. For example, if you have their Appointment Date on a custom field on their record, you could insert that data straight into your text message reply.

Apply Tags, Notes, and More From Chats

ActiveCampaign notes and tags

From your chats, you can easily apply tags, add notes, and view the contact record in just one click.

Now, you’ll have total control of your ActiveCampaign contacts, the conversations, and your automations.

Automatic Note Creation for Entire Conversations

We take things a step further and will automatically create a Note on the contact record with the entire text message conversation. Forget what your text message chat was about? You’ll be able to see your entire conversation from their record.

You can choose to create a note for each incoming and outgoing message or select to have the day’s conversation post over in one note.

Oh, The Possibilities!

There’s so many ways that you can now use two-way text messaging with your ActiveCampaign account or clients accounts. Here’s just a few ways that should get your brain going with ideas.

Billing Automation

When a payment fails, sends out a text message to initiate a conversation to get the payment updated. Provide a link to a page so they can update their credit card.

Scheduling/Re-Scheduling, Confirming, Reminding, and Canceling Appointments

If you schedule appointments, then you’ll definitely want to send people a text message confirmation, reminder, and a way for them to chat with someone at the other end of your Salesmsg line to cancel and reschedule.

People appreciate texting as a way to chat with business and this is a great way to get things done fast!

Sales Outreach

Having a tough time getting in touch with new leads over the phone? Send them a text message and chat with them in real-time. Use ActiveCampaigns automations to automate your outreach and fill your texting inbox full of responses.

“Does Salesmsg integrate with _________?”

We get that question quite a lot here, but truth be told, it’s nearly impossible to integrate with every single CRM and niche platform out there. There’s literally thousands of systems, platforms, and CRM’s out on the market, yet such little time, resources, and manpower to integrate with them all.

But thanks to our brand spanking new Zapier integration, Salesmsg now integrates with over 750+ apps to bring you the world’s easiest way to send and receive sms messages online.

What is Zapier?

For those of you who aren’t too familiar with the software, Zapier is a software that lets you automate aspects of your business workflow by connecting apps together.  For instance, you can automate text messages to leads 15 minutes after they fill out your webform online. You can automate actions on over 750+ different web apps based on actions that occur in your Salesmsg account and phone numbers.

The possibilities are endless!
