Anyone know a good sms/text message plugin for WP?

9 replies
I want to add a form to my Wordpress site to allow visitors to send me a message via text. Ideally I want to capture their mobile # too so I can reply via text. I can't find any Wordpress plugins, or at least I can't manage to get any to work. Has anyone had success implementing something like this? I'm not a coder.

Thanks!

    Hi Celeste, would you be using Twilio to send the SMS message or someone else? I have something similar that's standalone but could be easily adapted for WordPress.

    Let me know.

    Cheers,

    Jay

    Check out Chad Wyatt's WSO's He has designed wordpress to interface with Twilio accounts. I have set these up and they work real well.

        Andrew Mitchell had a WSO last week with a pop up form that would
        allow your users to opt-in to your SMS.... and then they would be
        added to your account over at SignalHQ.

        Looked pretty easy to me.

        kind regards,

        Hugh

    I do this now with my clients but its more for building lists, not getting sms messages myself. That's a cool idea though. What I do is tie the popup form (using a free popup wp plugin) to an openvbx flow. Visitor enters their phone number to opt in and they get saved into a database and SMS reply is sent to their phone. You can see an example popup at Hair Salon Grand Rapids, MI | Sorella Hair Design | 49546
