What Is The ActiveCampaign SMS Integration
Think pipes. ActiveCampaign needs to send and receive info on what, when, and who to send a text. Fortunately there are many ways to get this done, but some better than others. In our opinion the best way is the direct and “native” way using a direct “pipe” you can call an integration.
Just as it sounds, a native integration means no need for work arounds, 3rd party apps, or switching between the Salesmsg Triggers feature and ActiveCampaign Automations in order to build your ultimate workflow.
Now with just a few clicks, you can connect all the power of Salesmsg 2-Way Business Texting with ActiveCampaign, and then build everything you need inside ActiveCampaign automations.
Stay focused! Build in ActiveCampaign. Live in ActiveCampaign. Succeed in real life.
What Problems Does The ActiveCampaign SMS Integration Solve
Life before the ActiveCampaign SMS integration wasn’t terrible, but it certainly wasn’t as good as it is now! Yes, you could accomplish what you needed, but you need to master the Salesmsg Triggers feature as well as ActiveCampaign's Automation feature.
So in this case, less is more (let me tell you about it)!
For every message you wanted to fire from your ActiveCampaign automation, you needed to generate a special URL called a webhook inside of Salesmsg. Then you needed to paste that link into that step of your ActiveCampaign automation.
Kinda sorta not the best experience for you.
On top of that, you needed to keep track of all your webhook triggered messages. To do that, you’d needed a clever way to to name your Salesmsg Triggers, so you could easily find one when you need to update a message.
It gets worse!
Let’s say you had 20, 50, 100 text messages integrated into ActiveCampaign. That’s a big pain in the you know what every time you needed to tweak a text.
You already work too much and too hard.
We wanted to make your life a bit easier. So welcome to the future, where you never worry about this! You can now manage your SMS marketing and sales channels with ease using the ActiveCampaign SMS Integration.
How To Text Enable Your ActiveCampaign Automations In Seconds
Complexity is the enemy of execution! The more steps, the more buttons, the more instructions, the more likely one of two things will happen (if not both).
- Something will break. And it will. And when it does you’ll spend a frustrating amount of time fixing it, instead of spending time on the 17 more important things you need to do.
- You'll get tangled up in all the step-by-step-by-step details, like a clumsy boyfriend trying to assemble an Ikea bookshelf, and end up finishing a bottle of wine instead of the project.
In either case, you don’t get the results possible for your and your team. At least not as immediately as you can and should.
That’s the heart of this.
Time is of the essence. Let’s not waste it. Let’s get your ActiveCampaign Automations text enabled in seconds with the SMS integration. Here are the steps:
- No matter what ActiveCampaign Trigger you use, go into “Add a New Action” and “Open “CX Apps”
- Find “Salesmsg: Send SMS / MMS Message” App
- Choose the number or inbox you wish this message to be sent from
- Create your message
- Easy. Peasy. Done.
As you can see, it’s easier than ever to build and manage your automations, no matter whether the action is based on when a tag is added, removed, page visited, form submitted, a field value change, or a Stripe or Paypal order is received, and of course the list goes on!
How To Connect Your Account With ActiveCampaign SMS Integration
Now that you’ve seen the bright future ahead, here’s how easy it is to integrate your ActiveCampaign account with the Salesmsg SMS Integration.
To start, head over to Salesmessage.com, login as the account owner, and then go to your settings. From there click integrations, find ActiveCampaign, and hit the connect button. Once you type in your ActiveCampaign credentials, you’re good to go and ready for the “Bad To The Bone” trick.
The “Bad To The Bone” ActiveCampaign SMS Integration Trick
You already have way too many open apps and tabs to manage, right? If you had a choice, you’d avoid adding another! That’s why this bad to the bone “trick” is actually a purposefully built feature. The Chrome Browser Extension gives you full 2-way business texting for ActiveCampaign, without adding another tab or app to manage!
You like that?
Using this “trick”, whenever a lead, customer, or contact replies to an automation powered text message (or any Salesmsg SMS), the Chrome Extension will light up and stay lit with the number of unread texts you can read and respond to right from Chrome.
The Chrome Extension plus the ActiveCampaign SMS Integration lets you read and respond any of your text messages, without leaving ActiveCampaign to do so!
The motto here is “Work in ActiveCampaign, SMS From Chrome Extension, Stay In ActiveCampaign.”
