Learn how you can connect Respond Flow to a QR code to build your customer contact list.
After reading this step-by-step guide you will be able to connect your Respond Flow account to a QR code to easily onboard customers to your contact list.
I will use a clothing store called Corner Fabric as an example and walk you through how I would personally use Respond Flow to set up my text message automation to sign-up customers and automatically follow up with them to increase sales.
1. Get Your Unique Contact Form Link.
To begin I would use the already integrated Respond Flow form, which will help me collect all the information I need without taking more than 30 seconds of my customer’s time. The longer the signup, the more it feels like a burden rather than a reward. The form will collect all the information needed, while also ensuring that you remain TCPA Compliant. The form can be found by logging into your Respond Flow account
- Click the arrow in the upper right hand corner next to the Welcome message
- Choose Account Settings
- Click on the account for which you want the form
- In General Information click on External Signup Link
2. Create a QR Code
Once you have the form open, copy the URL and go to a free QR code generator to create a quick and easy QR code. That way the user can scan the QR code to access the form removing friction by saving the customer time finding the form. My personal favorite QR code generator is The QR Code Generator.
3. Print out the QR code
Now print out the QR code and place it somewhere that you know the customer is most likely to see it.
By now you should have all you need to start building your contact list. We have several blogs about best-practices for texting campaigns that are worth reading up on before starting to text. The secret is to offer value with every message without making it too detailed. Lead customers to a separate RSVP site or send images that hold the event details.
