“Twilio + Short.cm” Zap (SMS Marketing)

Most companies send notifications to their customers via SMS. Since SMS messages are limited with the number of characters, and sending a few ones is expensive, use a shortening service to save space for the text.

You may configure SMS marketing with short links via Zapier by setting up Short.cm & Twilio integration. It allows sending text messages with short links and a brief piece of text.

An example of the SMS looks like:
