What are SMS Auto-Responders?
Similar to email auto-responders, SMS Auto-Responders allow you to send an automated response via text message as soon as a prospect utilizes your “Text for Information” service provided by Smart Lead Capture. Here are a few examples of SMS Auto-Responder messages:

Getting leads is critical to helping agents and brokers grow their business. But quick follow-up could mean all the the difference between a dead end lead and a closed deal. That is why Smart Lead Capture also includes two very important tools to aid real estate professionals in their ability to follow-up with leads in a timely manner. Text Auto-Responders will allow agents to enter a short message that will be dynamically sent to any prospect as soon as they text for more information about a property. Lead Alerts allow the agent to receive leads via a text message sent immediately to their mobile device so they can follow-up with the prospects in real time. Both of these SMS tools were designed to help agents and brokers turn hot leads into real clients.
Marketing via text message (SMS) is one of the smartest, most effective options available. In today’s consumer environment, where more than 73% of cell phone users send and receive SMS and MMS messages, text messaging is flat out better than email. Here’s why:
Text response times trump email response times nearly every time. Take this statistic from CTIA.org – It take the average person 90 minutes to respond to an email, but just 90 seconds to respond to a text message.
Too many emails end up unopened and unread, lost to the spam or trash folder – some 88%, in fact. But 98% of SMS messages are opened, 90% of which are read within 3 minutes of receipt.
There is no better or more powerful tool for capturing leads and potential clients than SMS. And Smart Lead Capture makes it all unthinkably easy.
