Use Text Messaging to Capture Email Addresses Quickly and Accurately

Are you capturing email addresses with pen and paper at events, or at your storefront, only to waste time entering them manually and trying to decipher bad handwriting?

Are you missing opportunities to encourage your audience to quickly signup for your email list in advertisements and marketing materials?

Introducing Join By Text

text to join an email list

Capture an email address from any phone in seconds

We have launched a new product that can help if you answered “yes” to either question above.  The product is called Join By Text and it allows your audience to quickly and easily join your email list using a technology they already have on their phones and they’re very familiar with – text messaging.

How does it work?

  1. Your audience texts your unique keyword to a five-digit shortcode.
  2. Our system asks them to respond with their email address to signup for your email list.
  3. Their email address is automatically added to your email marketing platform so they can be sent a welcome email immediately.
  4. You watch your email list grow as you promote the keyword at events, in ads, and at brick and mortar locations.

After years of helping businesses and nonprofits use text messaging to capture email addresses we’re excited to launch this product that will make it even easier and more cost-effective than ever.

Currently Join By Text integrates with many popular email marketing platforms including MailChimp, AWeber, iContact, Campaigner, InfusionSoft, Emma, ActiveCampaign, and Publicaster, but new ones will added in the very near future.

If you’re looking for a new way to grow your email list then we encourage you to learn more about JoinByText and read answers to some common questions, please visit

Gathering email and phone numbers using a cell phone makes record keeping easier, but those to share their ids with you at these events are not always willing to hear back from you. You should properlycheck your email addresses list before sending emails. They may consider you as spammers.
