Automatic SMS for Customer Packages About to Expire.
Tan link can send an automatic SMS to customers who have packages about to expire. In this message, you will be able to notify the customer about the packages that they have available and offer a deal to keep them as active customers.
This applies to all walk-in/prepaid packages where an expiration number of days was configured. See the example of the Expiration # of days in Update packages below:
If custom Start-End dates were used instead, please read the Fixed Date Expiration section in this article.
In General Settings, set up your Package Expiration Text and how many days before the package expires the SMS should be sent.
Search for "Package Expiration Text Blast" and edit the options listed below:
- Number Of Days: Set the number of days before the package expires for the SMS to be sent out.
This applies to prepaid/walk-in packages with an expiration number of days.
- Message: Enter the message to be sent to the customer. *This text is NOT meant to be sent with a link.
You can also engage the customer to send a response using a keyword. See our guide on Keywords for automatic responses here: https://tan-link.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/21401219346957-Automatic-SMS-Keywords-and-Responses-
