How to send automatic text messages

Simplify workflows by either scheduling texts or creating automations.

A trigger is the condition you want your messaging platform to monitor incoming messages for, like a certain keyword.

2. Choose your action

Identify which action you’d like the trigger to set in motion, such as a message sending.

3. Set up action requirements

Depending on your action, you may need to set up additional items in Heymarket. You may need to create a text template, contact list, or survey.

4. Test the automation

Once you’ve tested the automation with team members, it’s ready for your customers!

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.
