There's no better way than SMS when you need to reach someone quickly and consistently. It has been proven that 98% of all email messages are opened within minutes.
Twilio is one of the leading SMS providers. That is why stape created a Twillio tag for the server Google Tag Manager that helps to send SMS using sGTM. In this blog post, I will show how to use it.

5. Click three dots in the top right corner -> Click Import -> Select Twilio tag template you’ve recently downloaded from GitHub -> Click save.
6. Create Twilio SMS tag in the server GTM -> Add Account SID and Auth Token (you can find these values in Twilio Console) -> Add Your Twilio phone number with SMS functionality to the field From -> Add a phone number to which you want to send an SMS to the field “To”. You can use either static numbers or variables. -> Add SMS text -> Set trigger.
7. Once done, open sGTM preview mode and test the Twilo SMS tag. Make sure that the Twilio SMS tag is Fired in the sGTM debugger.
