How It Works

You simply choose a KEYWORD that identifies your company or campaign. Your customers, and prospects then send a text message with your keyword to our short code (55678). When Optin Text receives an incoming text message to your keyword, the sender's mobile number is stored in your database for future mobile marketing campaigns, and they receive the response that you have chosen.

Optin Text Q&A

Q. 1. How do customers Opt-in to my mobile campaign?

A. When you sign up for an Optin Text account, you are automatically given one mobile campaign of your choice. Additional keywords can be purchased and you can have an unlimited number of unique mobile campaigns. All your customer has to do is text your Opt-in Keyword to the shortcode 59925 and they can Opt-in to your mobile campaign. For example, if your key word is WIN, your customer texts the word WIN to 59925.

Your customer can just as easily opt-out of your mobile campaign by sending the word STOP to 59925.

Mobile Questions and Answers
Q. 2. What is a Double Opt-in?

A.
Any mobile campaign that is ongoing (Subscription) or Premium-rate requires a Double Opt-in procedure. This procedure starts with the user sending a text message with your Keyword to 59925. The user will then receive a message asking that they confirm their request to join your mobile campaign. By replying with YES, Y, OK, or SURE, the user confirms their opt-in request and is “Double Opted-in” to your mobile campaign. The user then receives a confirmation message stating the terms of the mobile campaign along with your contact information. Now, you are ready to start sending your user timely mobile alerts.
Mobile Questions and Answers
Q. 3. How can I promote my mobile campaign to my customers?

A. The best way to build your Opt-in database is to promote your mobile campaign through your existing promotional channels such as print, radio, television, internet, in-venue, packaged goods, and more. Utilizing your existing marketing efforts is the best way to encourage customers to join your mobile campaign. Your campaign message to consumers should be simple and can be added to the promotional material you are currently using:

"Join Hollywood VIP Mobile Club to find out about hot upcoming events. Send the Word ‘VIP’ to 59925 Now!
*This is a free service, however standard text messaging charges by your wireless carrier may apply.
Additionally, you can create incentives such as free gifts, discounts, and special invites to encourage your customers to join your mobile campaign.

Q. 7. Do I still need to find a Mobile Marketer or Aggregator?

A. The answer is NO! Optin Text provides you with all the tools needed to create unique mobile campaigns in minutes.

Mobile Questions and Answers Q. 17. What is a shortcode?

A. All mobile campaigns operate on a common short code that is approved by mobile carriers. Short codes
can be unique or random 4-6 digit numbers and can be acquired through US Common Short Codes Associaton for $500-$1000/month.
Mobile Questions and Answers Q. 18. Do I need to obtain a common shortcode to start mobile messaging?
