3 Simple Ways to Use Voice & Marketo SMS with Your Marketo Campaigns

1. Lead Notifications

Sales come with fast responses. A great way to alert your sales people or lead owner is to send them a personalized SMS text with the lead information. So if they’re out in the field, on the phone, or simple busy, send them an automated text with the lead information for a fast response.

2. Webinar Reminders (Increase Attendance by 50%!)

The biggest problem webinar and teleseminars hosts have is getting people to actually attend their event. The truth is that people forget, but with a simple and automated voice or sms text message you can increase your attendance by as much as 50%! Add a voice message or an SMS reminder to your campaign by sending it at least 1 hour before the event starts.

3. Coupon Redemption

Want to drive sales quickly? Easily create a coupon that is redeemed by either having people text in a keyword to our short code (Text Loop to 38470) to get a % discount.

You can integrate voice and sms into any of your campaigns using our integration so enjoy and get creative!

Let’s face it…

Growing a business is hard work.

It’s not always sunshine and rainbows and first getting your business to even “become a business” is the hardest part.

Believe it or not, but Dropbox just a few years ago, before they became the world’s love child, was on their way to the dog-house, the dead-zone, the huge pit of killed businesses because of one thing…

The Cost of Customer Acquisition

As the story goes, when Dropbox first launched they tried every strategy under the sun to acquire users and customers for their brand new app.

They tried PPC, SEO, buying banners, and all of the “traditional” ways to grow their business.

Turns out, that their customer acquisition cost were sky high and running as high as $400 per customer.

Not bad if you’re selling a high ticket product or service, but when product is $9/mo ($97/year), reality quickly sets in that you’ll go broke in no time.

So Plan B was in full effect.

[NEW FEATURE] Click Tracking & Short URL’s for SMS Text Messages

“You can’t manage, what you can’t measure.”

Peter Drucker said that many moons ago and today you’re going to learn about a brand spankin’ new feature we just released called, Click Tracking, that helps you better manage the effectiveness of your messages.

Click Tracking by Call Loop will not only shorten your links for you, but will also show you how many people click your links from your SMS text messages.

This brand new built-in feature gives you deep insight into how well your campaigns are performing when linking to a website from a text.

No more LONG website url’s that take up your entire message, just enter your URL and click “create” and we’ll automatically shorten it for you and insert it into your message.

How Click Tracking Works

When you create your link, Call Loop converts it into it’s own unique link that’s hosted on our website and domain cllp.co.  Then, when a subscriber clicks on one of the links in your SMS message, we track this as a click and calculate all of the clicks generated for each specific link.

How Do I Track Clicks From My Texts?

Each Call Loop account includes Click Tracking for free and there is no fee for this. To create a trackable link, simply create a Broadcast, Followup, or Trigger SMS text message and click on the “link” icon below the message area.
