Stormy weather. The band is late...really late. If you've already synced your event attendee list to Ez Texting you won't break a sweat.

When we debuted our first integrations (MailChimp & Highrise), we promised to keep adding new web apps to the list...and today we've got another one for you. You can now sync your iContact lists directly into your Ez Texting account.
The options for iContact are similar to the other email marketing integrations:
Setup is quick, but it does require a bit of copying and pasting, so we put together a step-by-step guide. Once the initial setup is complete we'll handle the rest!
We're excited to announce the launch of our latest integration - one that we know so many of you have been waiting for - Constant Contact
Setting up the Constant Contact integration is extremely easy. Login to your Ez Texting account, click Integrations under the Advanced Features menu, and when that page loads you'll be able to add a new Constant Contact connection. After you've authorized the Ez Texting application you'll choose the lists you'd like to sync from and the Ez Texting Groups to add those contacts to. As with all of our integrations, you can sync manually or have us update the sync whenever you login to your account.
What's so great about connecting your Constant Contact and Ez Texting accounts? SMS Marketing and Email Marketing are perfect compliments to each other. By syncing your contacts between accounts there's no longer a need to manually export and import contacts. Everything is done in seconds - and can even refresh the list every time you login so your list is always up-to date.
While email marketing is great for long, rich content - and will never be replaced - text messaging allows you to reach those same contacts in a different, complimentary way. Short & Sweet (160 characters), universally supported, and with open rates over 90% within three minutes of receipt, text messages allow you to reach nearly all of your contacts, wherever they are, whenever you need to reach them. Text messaging is great for appointment reminders, mobile coupons, and time sensitive info.

When we rolled out our Integrations feature back in October we told you that more integrations would be on the way - and today we're excited to announce the next one - AWeber. If your unfamiliar with AWeber (we doubt you are, but go with us here), they are one of the most popular, easy to use email marketing services in the US...which made them a no-brainer when it came to creating our next integration.
Setting up the AWeber integration is extremely easy. Login to your Ez Texting account, click Integrations under the Advanced Features menu, and when that page loads you'll be able to add a new AWeber connection. After you've authorized the Ez Texting application you'll choose the lists you'd like to sync from and the Ez Texting Groups to add those contacts to. As with all of our integrations, you can sync manually or have us update the sync whenever you login to your account.
Over the weekend we released the latest version of our iPad signup app. The big upgrade? We've integrated Dropbox into the background/logo selection feature in order to make it even easier for you to customize the app. Forget about saving/copying logos & brackgrounds to your iPad. Instead, with a few taps you can access all images you've stored in your Dropbox.
Haven't heard about our app yet? Here's what we had to say when we released it back in September:
Over the past few months, in conversations with you (our awesome clients!), again and again we were asked for an iPad App that would allow you to collect phone numbers. We heard from so many of you - from retailers who wanted to place the iPad at the Point-Of-Sale (POS) to event organizers who wanted their staff to roam around events and encourage people to join their list. Today, we're excited to announce that the FREE Ez Texting Signup iPad App is here. You can get it at the App Store right now, within iTunes or on your iPad.
A few weeks ago, we launched our new Inbox APIs, along with PHP code samples. For a quick referesher: It's important to note that these new Inbox APIs should not be confused with our existing Incomming Messaging APIs. These new Inbox APIs are meant to allow you to manage the contents of your Inbox without logging into the Ez Texting web app.
At the time we said we'd have more code samples in a few weeks, and we're glad to announce that those code samples are now available! Check them out now:
Note! If you're already using our code samples in any other language than PHP, we've updated the shared library used by Contacts, Groups and now Inbox/Folders. Please note this if you download the zip of the library and the samples.
A few months ago we released our eBook, SMS Marketing For Small Businesses, exclusively for Kindle. Since then hundreds of people have read the book and learned the basics (and beyond of SMS Marketing).
Today we're excited to announce that our eBook is now available for FREE for every popular eReader on the market.* We've also provided the eBook in PDF format if you want to download and read it on your computer:
We've been rolling out a lot of great features lately, but we think Drip Campaigns is one that many of you are most excited about.
Drip Campaigns are like email autoresponders – they allow you to automatically send a timed series of text messages to a Group of Contacts. The messages are sent to anyone who joins a Group that is connected to that campaign. While you don't need a Keyword for a Drip Campaign, most people connect a Drip Campaign to a Group which you can join via a Keyword.
If you want to watch a video overview of Drip Campaigns, head over to YouTube.
