Consent varies based on the types of conversations the company has with its clients. (Conversational, Informational, Promotional, etc.) and on the nature of the conversation (Transactional or Promotional).
Conversational SMS/text messaging is a one-on-one two-way conversation between the company and its existing customers or known contacts with an existing business relationship.
If a customer texts us first and we respond quickly with a single message, then it is likely conversational. As long as the company responds with relevant information, then verbal and written permission is not required. This is called implied consent.
Informational SMS/Text & Voice Recordings: Informational messaging takes place when a contact gives the company their phone number and agrees to be contacted in the future. For informational text messaging, the customer does need to agree to receive texts specifically for informational purposes.
This is called express permission. Contacts may grant us this permission via text opt-in, on a form, on a website, verbally, or with written permission.
Promotional Text Messaging: Promotional texts are texts that directly promote, market, and sell your business, or its services. Contacts may sign a form, check a box online, etc. to receive promotional text messages.
Text Message Calls-to-Action (CTAs)
A “Call-to-Action,” also known as a CTA, is a link or button that you include in your text message to prompt your recipient to do an action.
SMS Messages: Message and data rates may apply. Message frequency depends upon your activity. For support, text HELP at 1-844-944-1477. To opt-out at any time, reply STOP.
This might include a link to go pay their open invoices, an opt-in or opt-out to a text message campaign, a connection to a website or other web property, a link to a calendar, and more.
- Regentology will be sending clients text messages including but not limited to the explanation of our service, and informational and promotional content for the business.
- Clients can opt out by texting a keyword like “STOP” and “UNSUBSCRIBE” or by expressing their lack of interest in the call.
- A client might receive SMS text messages based on their activity or engagement.
- When a client agrees to the communication policy, you agree to receive text messages from Regentology, and message and data rates may apply.
