SMS is a powerful way to send notifications to yourself or to your customers. Unlike other types of notifications, 90% of SMS are read within the first three minutes of delivery and have an open rate approaching 100%.
There’s now an incredibly easy way to send SMS from WordPress, directly from any of your WordPress forms!
Send SMS from WordPress from any WordPress form with Twilio and Ninja Forms!
Convert more leads
A 2011 study published in the Harvard Business Review reports that the average response time to inbound leads is 42 hours, which is incredibly slow. At the same time, research from InsideSales.com shows that 35–50% of sales go to the vendor that responds first.
Twilio SMS can help you boost your lead response time. Simply send yourself an SMS alert you get a new lead. This lets you follow up faster, thus converting more leads.
Improve customer support
Do you use Ninja Forms for your customer support forms? Here are two ways this plugin can help you improve your support:
- Send a SMS alert to your support team whenever you get a new ticket. This will boost your response time and improve customer happiness.
- Send a “support ticket received” confirmation SMS to your customers. This puts your customers at ease and lets them know that you’re working on fixing their problem.
Do you use Ninja Forms to process payments (eg. using the Stripe or PayPal integration)? Here’s some ways
- Wanna get notified of new sales? Want to follow up with new customers as soon as possilbe? Send yourself a SMS whenever you make a sale.
