Come Thursday night the age-old question of what to do with all the leftovers rears its untimely head. One solution is to send it home with your guests…of course. After all the day is meant for giving.
But not long after said guests trickle out, the Black Friday frenzy begins. With retail stores opening their doors at outrageous hours, there’s obviously no time to stop for lunch. So why not pack up some of your leftovers while scrolling through your CDYNE SMS Notify! powered texts for a promotion or two.
In the spirit of giving, here’s an example of a magic code that would help your store be as stuffed as your turkey was the night before.
Prompt your loyal customers to text the promo code ‘BLACK’ to a short code provided to you by CDYNE. All the texts will be received through your Postback URL, looking similar to this:
//If the POST contains SMSResponse, it is an incoming message
string SMSResponse = Request.Params["SMSResponse"];
string MessageID = Request.Params["MessageID"];
string MatchedMessageID = Request.Params["MatchedMessageID"];
string ReferenceID = Request.Params["ReferenceID"];
string FromPhoneNumber = Request.Params["FromPhoneNumber"];
string ToPhoneNumber = Request.Params["ToPhoneNumber"];
string ResponseReceiveDate = Request.Params["ResponseReceiveDate"];
string Message = Request.Params["Message"];
Once your system has received the keyword an automated message will be sent back to the subscriber with your coupon. It would look something like this:
IsmsClient client = new IsmsClient("sms2wsHttpBinding");
SMSResponse resp = client.SimpleSMSsend("17575449510", "Test Simple Message", new Guid("YOUR LICENSE KEY")); //Single line message request.
//SMSResponse resp = client.SimpleSMSsend("17575449510", "SMS Simple Test" + "\n" + "Multi Line Message", new Guid("YOUR LICENSE KEY")); Multi-line message request.
Console.WriteLine(resp.MessageID + " " + resp.SMSError.ToString());
Now wasn’t that easy? But wait there’s more…
