Learn how to use the SimpleTexting integration to communicate with your guests with two-way texting.
Your guests want to interact using their phones, and texting is the preferred method of communication. 90% of people open a text within three minutes with a response rate of 45%. (PCMag, 2020)
Through the use of our Mailchimp integration, you can now also integrate with SimpleTexting to create open communication with your guests via two-way texting.
What is two-way texting versus one-way texting?
Two-way texting enables you to receive and respond to inbound text messages while having one-to-one conversations with your guests. Campspot currently has functionality to allow one- way texting, but with this integration, your communication with your guests will be greatly expanded!
What is SimpleTexting?
SimpleTexting is an integration available to any Campspot partner taking advantage of our Mailchimp integration. By syncing SimpleTexting with your Mailchimp account, you can share guest information between the platforms making it easy to reach your guests wherever they are.
With streamlined messaging across email and SMS, you can easily communicate with your guests and take advantage of revenue generating opportunities. For example, you can easily:
- Communicate an issue with a site or site type
- Promote a particular site type
- Send a gate code
- Offer a special promotion
- Allow your guests to communicate with you without tying up the phone lines
- Send messages to a set of your guests based on criteria you select
- Send an individual guest a message for a one on one conversation
