How Do I Send Out A Review Invite Via Text Message?

4 Easy ways to invite reviews via SMS

  1. Add recipients via the Review Request Form.
    The custom review funnel page (Review Request Form) link was provided to you shortly after signup or by the agency managing your account.
    If you are self-managing your account you can find the invite forms under Widgets > Client & Staff forms of the dashboard.
  2. Add recipients manually (either one by one or bulk uploading a CSV) under Review Requests > Recipients > Request Review/ Bulk Upload button.
  3. Add recipients via one of your connected integrations such as Constant Contact found under the Integrations section of the dashboard.
  4. Let customers add themselves via the Opt-In Form found in the dashboard under Widgets > Client & Staff forms.
    Present this form to your customers at the point of sale via a dedicated kiosk (an iPad or computer with an internet browser will suffice).
    The opt-in form lives on its own URL - your landing page URL appended with “/optin”.
