Adding the SMS Subscription Keywords Content Block to a Webform

The SMS Subscription Keywords Content Block allows you to add check boxes to your webform that correspond to SMS subscription keywords created in your account.

About this task

Your contacts can click these check boxes when they view the webform to subscribe to particular keywords. For more information on creating SMS subscription keywords, see Create SMS Keywords.

Contacts cannot be subscribed to a keyword if you do not have a mobile number stored for them. Add the Mobile Phone Number Special Purpose Content Block to a webform to allow contacts to provide you with their mobile number. For more information on adding the Mobile Phone Number Special Purpose Content Block to a webform, see Capture Mobile Numbers From A Webform.

For the Add Contacts and Manage Preferences webforms, you can also set a default keyword for the webform in the Form Settings. When a contact submits the one of these webform, they will be subscribed to that keyword, provided you have a mobile number stored for them. If you also add the SMS Subscription Keywords Content Block to one of these webforms, then the contact will be subscribed to the default keyword selected for the webform, as well as any other keywords they choose to subscribe to. For more information on selecting a default keyword for an Add Contacts or Managed Preferences webform, see Choose A Default SMS Keyword To Subscribe A Contact To Upon Webform Submission.
