Build Instant Lead Alerts with Twilio SMS

Instant lead alerts allow salespeople to close more deals by talking to interested customers moments after they are identified. In this tutorial, you will learn how to implement real-time lead alerts via SMS text messages.

You probably already have landing pages or product detail views in your web application which you're using to generate some excellent leads for your business. Would you like to let the sales team know right away when you've got a new qualified lead?

In this tutorial, we'll use Twilio Programmable SMS to send a message when a new lead is found by implementing instant lead alerts for real estate. We'll create a landing page for a new house on the market and notify a real estate agent when a user requests more information.

Find your language and framework of choice below to get to the source code in your language and follow step-by-step instructions to learn how to build instant SMS lead alerts yourself.

Twilio customers like Trulia and ShowingTime use lead alerts in real estate, connecting agents to potential home buyers right after they register their interest in a property. Is real estate not your game? Use these same techniques in your own application to notify any type of sales professional when a new lead has been received by your system.

Happy building!
