Heads up! Cell providers are going to be more strict about including opt-out language in SMS messages this year. While you’re at a lower risk using Drip SMS, we recommend adding opt-out language if you don’t already have it.
Design engaging texts with our SMS campaign builder. Send to existing email segments or create new ones just for SMS. SMS Campaigns are great for time-sensitive offers like flash sales, VIP offers, seasonal updates like Black Friday Cyber Monday, and more.
Send an SMS Campaign:
Go to Campaigns > SMS
Click + New SMS Campaign
Name your message
Send to one of your saved segments, or create a new one using the People Filter
Once you’ve chosen your audience, click Save
Next, design your message with our campaign builder
Write your message, insert emojis, personalize with liquid, and see an interactive preview in the campaign builder. Note: Images are optional and will transition your SMS into an MMS
Optionally include your Contact Card in the SMS campaign, which provides a way for subscribers to save your contact to their phone
You can add “Reply STOP to opt-out” language to any SMS Campaign
Click Save and you’re ready to send or schedule your SMS Campaign
Just like with Single Email Campaigns, you can send your SMS Campaign immediately or schedule it for a specific date and time in the future. SMS sends will only be sent between 8 am - 9 pm in a recipient's time zone according to TCPA regulations.
Select the date and time you’d like to send your SMS Campaign, and click Send or Schedule
Your SMS Campaign will be sent at the selected date/time as long as it’s within the sending window. If the recipient lands outside of the 8 am - 9 pm window, they will receive the message the next time they are within the sending window.
SMS Campaign Dashboard
Get all the stats on your SMS Campaign performance on the SMS Campaign dashboard.
Here you’ll see the following stats: total revenue, revenue per person, average order value, click-through rate, and unsubscribes.
If a person clicks on a link in an SMS message and makes a purchase within 5 days, we will attribute their purchase to the SMS message. We cannot track open rates for SMS.
Without a link in your SMS messages, Drip cannot track the revenue performance of your messages. We recommend inserting a link in every SMS so you can track click rates and revenue.
Drip automatically shortens URLs starting with
drip.io/ + a string of numbers and characters. We recommend using our shortened links to keep your character count down, but you can use your own links.
Without a shortened “
drip.io/” link in your SMS messages, Drip cannot track revenue performance of your messages. In every SMS, we recommend including a link that begins with “
http” (which Drip will then shorten) so you can track click rates and revenue.
