Detail Plugin Description

The Joy of Text (or JOT) plugin provides a great way of connecting with your customers, blog subscribers or club members. This plugin allows you to send both SMS and voice messages to a group or to individuals.

To use this plugin you will need a Twilio account. If you don't have a Twilio account, you can sign up for a free trial account, then see what the JOT plugin can do for you.

This free version includes the following features:

  • Allows SMS and voice messages to be sent a group or individuals.
  • Creates a default group, into which subscriber names and phone numbers can be added.
  • Allows administrators to add, delete and update members from the group.
  • Creates a subscription form, allowing website visitors to subscribe to SMS updates.
  • Allows tags to be included into the message, allowing the subscriber's name, number or a link to your last blog post to be included in the message.
  • Support for Twilio SMS and voice messaging.
  • Send SMS messages to new subscribers, containing app store links to your media or mobile apps.

As discussed in this article, SMS messages have "open rate" of 98%, i.e. 98% of all SMS messages sent, are opened by the recipient. This compares to only 22% of emails sent, so give your marketing a boost, by sending SMS messages from the JOT plugin.

The JOT Admin screens explained.

The "SMS Provider" tab

Within this tab the authentication details for your SMS provider are entered. This version of the plugin only supports Twilio accounts. Once you have entered your Twilio details, you can select the 'from' number from which your messages will be sent.

You can also use this screen to choose your voice and language preference, which is used when sending text-to-voice messages.

The "Message" tab

Use this tab to construct your messages. First select the recipients of your message, then enter your message. The message can contain the special tags shown below:

  • %name% - when the message is sent, this tag is replaced by the message recipients name.
  • %number% - the tag is replaced by the recipients phone number.
  • %lastpost% - the tag is replaced by the URL of your last blog post.

From this tab, you can also specify a message suffix, that will be appended to all messages.

You can also specify whether your message is sent as an SMS message or as a voice message. For voice messages, the text you enter will be converted (by Twilio) to speech, which is played to your chosen recipients when they answer their phones.

The "Group Manager" tab

From this tab you can change the name and description of the group. You can add new members to the group, delete existing members from the group or update their name and number details.

From the "Group Invite" you can construct a form which you can place on your website, to invite your website visitors to subscriber to SMS/voice message updates. You can choose whether to send subscriber an SMS message containing a welcome message. The HTML for your form is provided on this tab or you can choose to use the shortcode [jotform].
