CRM automations

CRM automations work across Heymarket and your CRM platform. When you set up an automation between the two platforms, one will be able to take an action based on a trigger in the other. There are two main automations you can create with a CRM automation:

How to send automatic text messages

Simplify workflows by either scheduling texts or creating automations.
Here’s how to send automatic text messages in Heymarket:

01. Capture opt ins

Create a keyword that subscribers can text to opt in, or secure opt-ins from your website forms to build your contact list. Remember: only text those who have opted in.

02. Create segmented lists

Build better relationships by creating lists that help you target groups of contacts for improved personalization.

03. Draft text templates

Create reusable templates with custom fields to use for automations. Build FAQ responses, drip campaign flows, and other commonly used messages to save time.

04. Set up keywords or other triggers

Set keywords that trigger an auto-reply to incoming messages to shorten response times. Create automated texts that trigger when field changes occur in your CRM, like orders or closed tickets, with Heymarket integrations. Heymarket allows you to trigger automations from keyword, time of day, calls, specific messaging channels, and more.

05. Choose your actions

Set what action you want the automation to complete. In addition to automating messages, Heymarket can automate sending an SMS survey, adding a contact to a list, assigning the message to a team member, and more.

06. Test and launch the automation

Create a segmented list of team members to test new templates and scheduled texts before sending them to contacts. Then save your automation to run anytime the trigger is met, like when a customer texts a keyword or a custom field changes.

Automated text message for business FAQs

Want to learn more about how to send automatic text messages? Find answers to some common questions below. Reach out to our team for additional tips and information.

Yes. You’ll need help from an automatic text message sender, which is part of a business messaging platform. It will allow you to set a trigger (the thing that initiates the automation) and an action (e.g., sending a text).

In your business messaging platform, choose your trigger, select the action, and set up automation requirements (such as text templates). Then, your SMS automation will be ready for customers.

Yes. Your texts will come from the number connected to your business texting platform. (If you have a landline number, your business platform will enable text to landline capabilities.)

iPhones allow you to schedule texts. However, to create more advanced automations on iPhone, you’ll need a business messaging platform’s help. Some platforms offer mobile apps that you can use on either iPhones or Android devices.

It depends on the business messaging platform you use. In some cases, automated text costs may be folded into your platform subscription.
