CardTapp 201: Session 2 - Auto Tagging with EasyText Follow
Advanced Features (Auto Tagging with EasyText)
With the basics behind us, we're moving on to a review of some of our advanced features. In this second session of our advanced features module, we'll look at how you can reduce the time it takes to add tags to Tappers:
For this session, you will need:
- Your computer
- Your cell phone
- Your EasyText keyword
The second session in our Advanced Features module expands on one of the sharing strategies we discussed in the first module, EasyText, to automatically tag Tappers. We walked through the tagging process in our last session. Tagging app recipients through your dashboard or TappTracker app is a valuable feature but is a manual process that takes time since tags are added one by one. A quicker way to tag your Tappers is to actually have them tag themselves with automated tagging.
You hopefully remember that all you have to do to share your app via EasyText is to have trade show, lunch and learn, or webinar attendees text your keyword to the short code 36260. If they do, they immediately become a Tapper that you can access and review. At that point, you can add tags manually like we reviewed in the last session. Another strategy is to add a tag into your EasyText instructions. All it takes is adding a hashtag (the pound icon - #) and then the tag you want to include on Tappers who text that phrase to get your app
To generate and assign a tag to a new Tapper using EasyText, simply add a tag after your keyword and ask event attendees to include the tag in their text, so instead of prompting trade show attendees or lunch & learn guests to:
Text yourkeyword to 36260
ask instead for them to:
Text yourkeyword #thistradeshow to 36260
The text that follows the hashtag/pound sign (#) will automatically be included in the Tapper record upon following the link for your app.
Has the same Tapper attended both a trade show and a lunch & learn? No problem! Keywords from different events in separate messages are all added to the "Tags" field in the Tapper's record.
