Getting Started with Shout

Your time is valuable, which is why we made this setup guide as succinct and straightforward as possible. You’ll be creating groups and sending mass texts in no time!

Shout Basics

Shout has five basic components that help speed up your day.

Inbox: All your messages from Facebook, email, and text will be housed in this one inbox. If you, for example, respond to a Facebook message in Shout, your client will receive your reply as a Facebook message as well. The inbox will keep you caught up with all your customers’ questions and inquiries, plus you’ll save time and effort trying to juggle several methods of communication.

Scheduled Messages: No need to set reminders on your phone to send messages, you can write the message on Shout and schedule a time and day for it to automatically send off. Perfect for daily or weekly messages to your team, appointment and order reminders for clients, follow-up texts, or any other message you want to take care of in advance.

Contacts: Sammy Shout will automatically create new contacts when someone messages you, or you can create your own. You’ll have a master contact list in Shout, so you don’t have to rely on finicky social media platforms to house all your clients.

Bots: You can customize a bot to reply to customers’ common questions without you having to touch a button. The bot can also categorize incoming messages before you even see them, allowing you to categorize conversations by topics such as “parties,” “shipping,” “rewards,” “inventory,” etc.

Groups: If you need to send the same message to multiple people, create a group. This will allow you to tell everyone about new inventory or special sales with a single click. Not only will you save yourself time, but you’ll have the guarantee that your clients actually see the promotion.Receiving and replying to customer inquiries and product requests will become effortless as you manage all inbound and outbound messages from your Shout dashboard.
