You can also export the customer data to add to your contact lists or CRM system. What’s more, all these actions can be performed easily via the Textlocal web portal or APIs and require no technical expertise.
Whether you want to expand your contact database or provide information via two-way SMS communication, Textlocal has the answer!
Textlocal offers two ways to start receiving missed calls
Missed Call Number
Customers can give missed calls at zero cost to them. The call automatically gets disconnected after 1 ring.
Customers can give missed calls and text into (SMS) dual VMNs. Missed calls incur zero costs & for SMS, standard rates apply.
Easily manage missed call hits and inbound SMS with Textlocal
Textlocal stores all SMS messages/missed call numbers from your customers and prospects in one place, neatly organizing them into relevant inboxes based on the missed call number or dual VMN (with relevant Keyword combinations).
Every Textlocal inbox comes with the ability to perform actions upon receipt of a message i.e., forwarding to relevant email addresses or CRM applications. They come packed with features to help you manage and automate your data.
Two-way communication channel
Create as many inboxes as you want, with different missed call numbers, short codes, long codes, and keywords.
Schedule automated replies
Compose an automated SMS response that is sent to every customer who gives a missed call or texts into your inbox. What’s more, you can include attachments and links and also, schedule responses after a certain time.
Easily store contacts
We provide a private Textlocal inbox that stores all your contact numbers. Alternatively, you can easily export them to your contacts list.
Forward to any application
Automatically forward all incoming requests to a URL, so that your application can receive it and act upon it. This is useful for integrating SMS/missed call numbers with your website or CRM application.
Automatically forward all incoming requests to an email address (or multiple email addresses), for free. You can reply via email and we will send the reply SMS back to the customer.
If an email address is contained within an incoming SMS, you can set up an automated email response to the recipient at no extra cost. Send brochures and other attachments in your email message.
Forward to a mobile
Automatically forward all incoming requests to your mobile. It costs one credit to forward a message to your phone.
Forward to a group
Automatically forward received requests to a pre-selected Textlocal contact group. This will cost the same SMS credits as sending an SMS campaign to them.
Different ways businesses can use missed call numbers and dual VMNs
Build opt-in database
Use our long/short codes to tease your customers with tempting offers and encourage them to opt-in. Easily store contact numbers coming into inboxes – export and add to your CRM application.
2-way communication channel
Textlocal allows your customers to directly chat with teams by sending an SMS. You can also forward inbound messages to your email or to an application to take the conversation forward on other channels.
Effective lead management
Never miss a lead even if your representatives are busy with other customers. Access all incoming texts along with relevant fields such as customer mobile number, and timestamp of incoming SMS.
Track your campaign effectiveness
Measure the effectiveness of every source by configuring unique keywords for billboard displays, TV ads, etc. and tracking the lead flow.
Reach low connectivity areas
A missed call number or a dual VMN enables you to easily tap audiences from regions with low internet or smartphone penetration. Increase the reach of your business with a missed call marketing campaign and get more leads.
Alternate contact option
If the primary contact number goes down, customers can give a missed call or send specific enquiries as SMS to your dual VMN.
