Benefits of click to join

Click to join is one of the most convenient ways of allowing people to opt into your list. It makes the process as automated as possible. Several other benefits come with a click to join. Here are a few of them.

  1. Converting mobile traffic

    Studies show that over 70% of web traffic comes from mobile phones. Hence, cashing this traffic is one of the most important things you can do. One way to do it is to add the click to text button. This button allows you to cater to the people that visit your website or landing page from their phone. When they click on the button, they are automatically redirected to their default messaging app. This allows little to no effort and they can simply sign up to their desired keyword or list within a few seconds.

  2. Less human error

    Click to text buttons require little to no effort. Hence, there is a reduced chance of human error as well. Most of the time, when customers send the keyword, they make typos in the number or the phrase. This invalidates their permission to opt into the list. Some of these customers, send the message again. However, others might just not have the time for it.

    With click-to-text, there is a reduced chance of human error. All the person has to do is to click the button and then click ‘send’. There is nothing else to do that makes it less of a problem in converting your mobile traffic into your texting traffic.

  3. Records

    Another advantage of having a click-to-text button is that you can keep records. When a person sends you a message, they are saved in your list. ExpertTexting’s inbox feature allows you to save and record all messages sent out and received. Calls, and other methods of marketing do not have this feature.
