First, you will want to create the campaign that will collect your contact's phone number and text opt-in. You will need both the phone number and the text opt-in field present in order to send the subscriber text messages through Privy Text.
When you add a phone field to your campaign, the text opt-in field will automatically be added as well.
Next, you can choose your display type in the design section of the campaign builder. In the video, we show how to easily use a landing page with this use case, although you can use any of the display types with the right audience targeting to achieve similar results.
After updating the design (and adding targeting and triggers if you decide not to use a landing page), you can proceed to the behavior section. If you would like to add a coupon to the campaign thank you page, you would do so here.
Then, you can add an Autoresponder email and After Signup Text to your campaign to follow up with your subscriber letting them know that they have successfully subscribed to your email and text lists!
You will then publish your campaign, and for landing pages, go back to the Design section of your campaign builder to copy the landing page URL to save for later.
Next, what you will want to do is create a Newsletter email to send to your list of your current mailable email contacts.
Choose the "+New newsletter" button, give your newsletter a name, and pick your template.
While editing your template, make sure to paste your landing page link into a button prompting people to subscribe to receive text messages from you!
After you save your design changes, make sure you are sending to all of your contacts to get the most phone numbers possible by confirming that All contacts is selected as the "To" option.
Next, you can choose to schedule your newsletter email or send it now! That way, people will receive your email with a link to subscribe by confirming their email address and adding their phone number and selecting the text opt-in box on your landing page form!
