5 Fun Things to do with RedTie
We built RedTie to meet communication use cases using text messaging, phone calls, chat, and social media channels. Most of these use cases are enterprise-focused and frankly boring.
For example, one of the largest energy utility companies in the US has integrated Redtie to detect weak electric signals coming from line sensors and alert the internal workforce to take the needed actions.
However, RedTie may also be used for quite a few fun use cases.
1.Schedule a call to yourself before going on a blind date
Give yourself an easy out from a potentially terrible date by scheduling text message or phone call 365 days ahead of time. Mix and match options to choose the accent of your mystery caller. (American / British / Australian) and Male/Female. If the date is going well, you even can take the call on Speaker mode.
2. Send a text reminder to those that have not opened the email
You have sent the latest beautifully-crafted (in your opinion) newsletter to your contact list. After a few days, RedTie can automatically send out a reminder text to the contacts that have not opened your email.
“Hey, Bob, It took 4 days and 6 hours to prepare our newsletter with curated information. And you have not even opened it? Come on, dude”
NOTE: If “Bob” replies with a ‘STOP’ as a reply to your text, Redtie will automatically unsubscribe him from future text nudges.
3. Never miss wishing another birthday
Everyone wants to be remembered on your birthday — take the planning out of it. Each of your clients could receive a personalized text on their birthday morning.
Go under “Settings”, create a template for the birthday wishes and choose the time of the day to send the message. On the day of your contact’s birthday, Redtie will send the message on your behalf. Redtie supports tags such as #first_name# and #last_name# to make the message more personalized.
“Hey Bob, Happy birthday wishes from all of us at ABC Business”!
