Before you can start sending messages you need to add subscribers to your account. Mobile Text Alerts makes it easy and convenient to get members into your system by providing 3 easy ways to insert subscribers.
Subscribers can sign up for your text alert system by texting your keyword to 662-200-4303 (we also have shortcodes available).
When you create an account, we will generate a sign-up page for you. You can either keep your sign-up page hosted on our site, or you can embed the HTML onto your website to allow people to sign-up directly from your site.
If you have an existing list of numbers that you would like to put into your text alert system, you can import a spreadsheet in your control panel.
Your keyword is a unique identifier for your organization. Your subscribers text the keyword into the system and they are added to your account.
The default number for our system that is included with your account is 662-200-4303. We also have a shortcode available (48421) for an additional $14.99/month fee. If you prefer, you can customize your 10-digit phone number for $9.99/month
Yes, additional keywords can be purchased on the 662 number for $2.99/month. Keywords on the shortcode (48421) are always $15/month.
Yes, subscribers can remove themselves from your messages by texting in 'stop' or 'unsubscribe'.
With every account a sign-up page is generated. The sign-up page allows subscribers to enter their first name, last name, phone number, and select what groups they would like to be part of.
The default URL for your sign-up page is https://mobile-text-alerts.com/keyword where "keyword" is replaced with your keyword. For example, for our account 'verse-of-the-day', the URL for the sign-up page is https://mobile-text-alerts.com/verse-of-the-day
Yes, we can add a logo or change the colors on your sign-up page for no extra fee. If you are part of our Professional, Premium, or Enterprise plans, we will even have a designer work with you to do a complete page redesign.
Yes, you can embed the HTML from your sign-up page on your own website. We have programmers ready to help you with your integration if you need it.
If you already have existing subscribers that you would like to add yourself, you can add them one-by-one in your control panel, or you can upload a spreadsheet.
Click "Manage Subscribers." The screen will then look like this:
Click the green "Add a Subscriber" button near the top of the screen and a new row will be added to the list of subscribers. Type in the new subscriber's first name (optional), last name (optional), phone number (required), and email (optional), and then click "Save" on the right side of the row to save the information.
Click on "Import Subscribers" on the left side of your screen to go to this page:
As the page explains, you can drag and drop a spreadsheet from your computer onto the large box that says “Drop files to upload.” Or you can click on the box to upload a file from your computer. Your spreadsheet must be in XLS, XLSX, ODS, or CSV format; you can click on the “template spreadsheet” link to download a template that will be in the correct format.
