How do I use SMS links?

This is a PRO feature

SMS marketing has risen astronomically in the last few years and is now one of the most popular forms of marketing amongst innovative brands today. Linktree wants to encourage this form of engagement with your audience as much as possible so we have created an SMS link for you to do just that! 

The SMS link works a lot like our email integration. Your audience can enter their mobile number on your Linktree, and on submission it will automatically update to your synced Google Spreadsheet.

SMS Links is available to all PRO subscribers. To add a SMS Link, follow the instructions below: 

1. Navigate to the ‘Settings’ tab of your Linktree Admin

2. Scroll down to the 'Integration' section where you will find the 'SMS Signup' section.

3. Toggle the Link to the ‘On’ position (the toggle button will turn green).

Google Sheets

  1. Next, you will need to authorize your Google Sheets.
  2. Click on the 'Authorize Google Sheets' button and sign into your preferred Google account. 
  3. Add your button copy (the title of your SMS button), the success message (that appears once a user has submitted their number) and a link to your private Google Spreadsheet where you want your numbers saved (as pictured below). 

Please note: You will need to ensure you are copying the Google Sheets URL from the same Google account you authorized in step 4.

Adding your Terms and Conditions (optional)
