- Deliverability - better message penetration than email or voicemail.
- Economy - HTTP2Phone uses your mobile plan's allowance.
- Non-intrusive - less disruptive than a phone call, but with a direct path back to the sender.
HTTP2Phone is a proprietary Android app developed to relay SMS text messages from your PC via SalesPartner. SMS is an effective communication vector with advantages over telemarketing and email.
How it works
Your contacts are entered into SalesPartner on your PC. Your Android mobile must be connected to the same WiFi network as your PC so that your phone can receive the instructions from your computer.
When you open HTTP2Phone on your mobile, you'll see your device's unique IP address. This address is entered in SalesPartner on your PC so it knows where to send the commands.
Part 1: Sending a message to one person
Ensure your phone is connected to the same WiFi network as your PC. This is essential for the phone to receive instructions from SalesPartner. Open HTTP2Phone on your phone and note the phone's IP address. Normally it will be similar to 192.168.1.1:8080. If your phone's IP address is 0.0.0.0:8080, that means your phone is not connected to WiFi.
In SalesPartner, open Contact Entry and enter yourself as a contact. Click Send SMS.
Under Send Via... select SMS Sender then under Android Settings ensure the IP matches the IP address shown in your phone. The port number 8080 is specified underneath the IP address.
Enter a test message in the lower right panel then click Send to This Contact.
SalesPartner will remember your phone's IP address for future sessions but it may change from time to time depending on the number of devices in your network.
The recipient's activity is automatically recorded with the message saved in the description field.
