SMS Texting Is Only Available In:
the U.S.A., the US Virgin Islands, Guam, and Puerto Rico.
Please Note, For All Other Countries:
The SMS QR code found in the back office is of NO use.
-It cannot be used to send out text messages.
-It cannot be used to start building your customer list, by having prospect opt in.
The next country to come on board with texting capabilities will be Canada.
Unfortunately, a completion date has not yet been announced, but we do know that the programming has been over a year in the works. ICANetwork is a young company, with many projects still to be completed. Australia should be the next country to follow.
In The Interim:
As an alternative to texting, ICANetwork offer an email solution that is available to everyone.
On The Phone App:
Prospects should be encouraged to tap on “Join Us” then on to the “Registration Form” where they may enter their name, phone number and email address.
Prospects Need A Good Reason:
If they are going to register with your phone app, they must be offered some kind of ongoing ‘reward’ that only applies to members who have taken the time to fill in the Registration Form.
Phone App Clients:
The business owner can start to build their texting data base of customers, as the phone numbers entered at this time are used in the SMS Text Messaging System.
Where To Find The Captured Emails:
Log into the BizApp Creator back office, you will find the subscribers in “Lead Capture Results” at the bottom of the page.
Displayed is the Name, Number, Email, Date Registered, regid.
Currently, the business owner needs to copy and paste the complete data base into a text format and them imported into excel with Delimiter “|” to separate into columns.
You may now incorporate the emails into your existing marketing mailing software. Many small to medium businesses with large mailing lists use a service called AWeber.
