Some of our customers just respond better to texts than to emails. But sometimes typing that text on a computer would be just so much easier and here's how to do it.
Using your gmail, Outlook, or any other email system that you use, you can send a text if you know the telephone number of the recipient.Read More.
How to get the text email address
To convert the phone number to an email address, you add the carrier code to the phone number. For example, if the 10-digit phone number is (555)123-4567 and the carrier is AT&T then the email is: email@example.com
When the recipient replies to the text, the reply will go directly back to your email inbox. The email is always the 10 digit phone number with the carrier code behind the "@".
In most cases, you won't know the carrier. You can look up the carrier using websites like FreeCarrierLookup.com. In fact, FreeCarrierLookup.com will give you the complete email. Store this extra client email with your other contact emails and use as needed.
How this can help you
This is an alternative way to send the same text to a group of customers. Also, if you like to consolidate all your messages, text and email, in one place, this will be a help. You can view the texts that you sent in your sent folder just like your regular emails and you can later search for that text just as you search your archived emails.
