How to Build a Large Database of Customers

To be successful with text marketing, it starts by effectively building a large database of customers that want to receive texts. We have multiple ways to ensure you build a strong database of customers.

In-Store Sign-Up & Loyalty Kiosk

Fast & Easy Sign-up

With the TL Connects LTE-enabled custom loyalty kiosk you’ll increase your sign-ups as much as 10x. The kiosk will be placed at your point-of-sale, hostess station, or bring one to an event.

Track Your Offers
With the kiosk, you can now track all your offers. When sending out a text message customers will be asked to redeem at kiosk and once they redeem they will receive a time stamp and dated text. You can also promote keywords on Facebook, Instagram, and others through other marketing with a unique keyword that activates and offer for your customer to redeem at the kiosk.

QR Code Program

In-Store QR Codes & Custom Mobile Web App

A touch-free, smartphone solution.

Drive customers to a touchless online menu, social media channels, Google reviews, & build a database of customers to text with our dynamic QR Code Program.

Customers open their phone's camera app and scan the QR Code to be taken directly to the Custom Mobile Web App landing page. From this page the customer interacts by entering their mobile phone number to sign-up, check-in, redeem offers and more.

Promote your Business with a 98% Open Rate

Quickly create textALERT campaigns or schedule custom auto-responders sent automatically to customers at pre-determined intervals, such as 1 hour or five minutes after sign-up.

Text Message Types

MMS (image, up to 640 characters)
MMS is a great way to wow your customer with a picture or a fun gif. It’s also a great way to show off food or product which increases the response rate up to 25%. With 640 characters you’ll easily be able to get your message across.
SMS (up to 160 characters)
Don’t need to say a lot? SMS is a quick and efficient way to get your message out.
Trigger-based Automated Texts
With auto-responders you can map out SMS & MMS’s from the time a customer signs up. For example, 1 hour after sign-up you can send them an MMS with links to your social media & website or even ask for their birthday to celebrate their big day.
