Start by finding out if what they’d like to ask you via text. It’s the perfect place to start, because then you’ll know exactly how to proceed in your messaging journey.
Solution: Hand off to email, SMS or live chat
With your business numbers text enabled, you’ll need a way to capture and respond to incoming texts. Midori can help by enabling you to hand off text messages to your email or SMS account or to a live chat where you can respond.
