Voyage Deep Link

Voyage Deep Links allow you to add customers to your list from any mobile channel - whether it's email, social media, web, or even QR codes on your physical marketing materials. These links will automatically open an SMS populated with your opt-in messaging, so all the customer has to do is click Send.

In this article we will walk you through the process of creating a Voyage Deep Link List Building campaign in Voyage SMS and adding the link to your content.

Navigation to New List Building Campaign

Look for the List Building item on the main menu [1]. If you are starting a new Voyage Deep Link List Building campaign, click on the blue button in the top right [2]. Otherwise, if you are editing an existing campaign, find your Voyage Deep Link List Building campaign in the list below and click on the ellipses [3] to see the Edit Flow [4] option:Navigate-to-List-Building-New

 


We'll assume you are creating a new Voyage Deep Link List Building campaign, so on the following screen you'll want to select Voyage Deep Link [1], give your campaign a name [2], and click on Next [3]:

Create Messaging

Here are several selections and fields that need to be populated to continue. Starting with the unique opt-in message itself [1], which will be auto-populated for the customer to send. The double opt-in slider [2] is required for compliance, and you can customize your enrollment message here [3]. If the customer already subscribed, this custom message will be shown [4]. As you go along and make changes you can see a preview of them in real-time on the right [5]:Defining-Message-for-Instagram-Swipe-Up-Opt-In

 



Scrolling down, you'll see the enrollment confirmation message [1] and the beginning of your Welcome Flow. Optionally include an optimized image file [2], a contact card [3], and a friendly welcome message [4]. You should also include a link to a followup welcome page [5]. When you are all set, click on the blue Save Opt-In button in the bottom left corner [6]:Other-Customer-Opt-In-Message-Options

Voyage Deep Link

On the next page you'll see your Voyage Deep Link that can be easily copied with a single left click. Once the link is copied to your clipboard, you can use it in any content your subscribers will be accessing via mobile - from social media to the web, or even linked to a QR code. This is the last page of the Voyage Deep Link creation process inside the Voyage app, so clicking on Next will take you back to the List Building main menu:Copy-Voyage-Deep-Link

 


Deploying on Instagram

You can add your Voyage Deep Link to your Instagram stories using the new Link Sticker option. This replaces the previous Swipe-Up option in stories.

The Link Sticker function is currently geared toward business users, therefore it's only available to those who satisfy these requirements:

  • You must have a Business or Creator account
  • Your account must be verified or have at least 10,000 followers

To create a Link Sticker pointing to your Voyage Deep Link, follow these steps:

  1. Confirm that you've met the requirements above.
  2. When creating a story, click the sticker icon in the top-center of the screen.
  3. Choose the "link" option in the sticker tray.
  4. Select the "URL" option
  5. Paste in the Voyage Deep Link URL that you've copied from Voyage SMS.
  6. Click "Done".
  7. Share your story!

Note: This a mobile first feature, meaning, it's designed to work specifically with mobile devices and is not currently optimized for Desktop Flows.
