Text Alert sign up on the fly

April 22, 2012 | 02:01 PM

We've created a text alert sign-up interface which allows persons to get your e-text alerts quickly and easily. They simply enter the phone number and carrier. If you have more than one text alert, they'll get checkboxes for which text alert to receive. Once submitted, the system will send a verification text alert to their phone with a link to verify the authenticity of the request. Once the link is clicked - they are receiving your text alerts. Features for the interface include:
  • Full CSS Styling: the interface will use the styles and containers that you have defined.

  • Optional Captcha: the interface can include an image captcha to filter out robots. This is enabled on out site.

  • Text Alert Title and Descriptions: The listed text alerts (if there are more than one) can also include the description of the text alert. That has been disabled in our examples.

  • Existing Account Awareness: If the submitted phone belongs to an existing account, the existing account will be updated with the text alerts.
Once created, the sign up piece will act as an inclusion - you can place it anywhere - or everywhere - on your site.

Hope you find this feature helpful. Call your Linear representative about enabling the feature on your site (it's free).

corydonI've had a great experience with Linear Publishing. The system was easy to learn, and Greg and his staff are always available to answer any questions I may have.

Our readers are apparently liking the results, too, because our visits to the web site have tripled this year.
