Automations can save you valuable time. Instead of manually sending messages, you can create automations to send messages when an if-then condition has been met. For example, if a customer opts-in to receive promotional messages, you can send them an automated welcome text. You can also connect to third-party software, like a customer relationship management (CRM) system, or use predefined automations to trigger messages.

Predefined Automations

Predefined automations don’t require any third-party setup. There are several popular automations to choose from.

  • Contact form welcome: Send a greeting to a customer who fills out your contact form
  • Opt-ins thank you: Send a thank you message after a customer opts in to receive promotional messages
  • Payments reminder: Gently remind a customer to pay an outstanding payment request
  • Payments expiration: Notify a customer when their payment link is about to expire
  • Payments review: Send a review invitation when a customer completes a payment
  • Thank you: Send a thank you message to a customer who has left a positive review
