How I use Project Broadcast at Vendor Fairs to give out free samples
When setting up a booth at a vendor fair, I always plan to offer free samples! After all, it is the best way to get people to try my new product without the pressure of the sale. Before a vendor fair, I set up a keyword in my Project Broadcast’s keyword tab. This keyword will trigger an auto-response message and follow-up campaign automatically. This saves me a ton of time. I can even send the customer a survey in that auto-response.
Here’s how the process works. I use a specific keyword, let’s use “sample”, and on my vendor booth I advertise my keyword with “to request a free sample of (specific product) text “sample” to (my project broadcast number.) When the keyword is texted to my Project Broadcast number, they will receive an auto-response message. Here is my example of the auto-response message I send back:
The link takes them to a Project Broadcast configurable form. This form will have questions that I created in our custom fields section, that will give me the name of who is texting and their address to mail their sample to. I also make sure the keyword is joined to a drip campaign that goes out when the keyword is triggered. The drip campaign is set up to follow up at 2 days, 7 days, and 14 days after they trigger the campaign by texting me the keyword. Here is an example of my drip campaign follow up messages:
Two days after:
Seven days after:
Fourteen days after:

Project Broadcast also has a feature that can remove a person automatically from the campaign if they respond back. This avoids continuous follow up questions when you have already started having a conversation and don’t need to remind them. This feature is called “Remove Contact On Reply” and can be selected when creating the campaign.
