How can I send a rich text message linked message using Sakari? 



What are Rich Text Messages?

Rich text messages are text messages with a link to a Sakari-hosted webpage within your text message. These hosted pages can be used for a variety of applications, including: 

  • Review Requests
  • Appointment reminders
  • Coupons
  • Event announcements

Rich text messages have the advantage over a standard webpage of being customizable for a specific user.  Customizable elements include names, dates, maps, call to actions and more can be included in your rich text message page. 


How Can I send the using Sakari?

Rich text messages are created in Sakari using two templates:

  • Web Template - The web template is an HTML (webpage) that is customized for your business application.
  • SMS Template - The SMS template is used to "deliver" the rich text message to your contact. It includes a link to the Web template.



Setup Steps

3. Create/Edit the web template you would like to send.  The templates are built in HTML.  After you've completed editing your template, save it.
