Depending on your business and the customer data you have at hand, sending review invitations by SMS could be a great way to ask for reviews. We use the same enterprise-grade SMS solution used by Lyft, Nordstrom and countless other companies to send your SMS invitations.

Pro-tip: Your invites are sent from a shared phone number by default, and you have the option of sending from a phone number unique to you should you wish.

Templates
You can setup your own custom templates to be used when you send your review invitations. Use variables to inject customer information such as the customer name, order ID as well as custom variables that you can provide us for each given customer.

We make it easy for you to A/B test which templates are delivering the best results - you can simply setup your trigger to run two or more templates simultaneously. You'll then be able to see high-level metrics such as click-through rates to double-down on the template that performs best.
