πŸ’Œ Subscribe to newsletter with an SMS

Link to Demo

In this tutorial, we want to add an option for people to subscribe to our newsletter by texting us their email address.

We're going to use Twilio for the SMS part and Zapier to send the email address to our email marketing service (Revue in this case).

‍

First to set up twilio.

Setting up Twilio

  • [x] Β Get a phone number
  • [x] Β Auto response flow
  • [x] Β SMS URL for response

Then in Zapier, we parse every received text message to extract the email address. Then add the email as a subscriber on our email marketing service.

Want to try it out? Try texting +1 (702)800-3974 with your email address :)

Enjoy!
