Get Real, Honest Maker Commentary

Twilio is the go to tool to use to send text messages. But the hidden secret that is not widely known, is using Twilio in combination with Zapier. 

Twilio by itself is not no-code friendly and has a high learning curve. In the case of my project and I’ve seen others, Twilio paired with other no-code tools drastically reduces the learning curve and actual need to learn how to implement Twilio. Think of Twilio like your email sender like Mailchimp, Sendgrid, ConvertKit. No imagine having to learn the development behind it and codify it to actually work. With Zapier, Parabola and others, it takes that part completely out and uses Twilio as a sender. Eliminating any of the hard part. That’s the beauty of no-code.

 

Below I have added a successful project launched on Product Hunt called Dream Vacay. Below are my stack notes and video tutorial of how I linked together this stack to create a product that automates saving money reminders for your dream vacation. The stack consists of Carrd>Typeform>Zapier>Twilio. 

What’s more is you will see outstanding Makers like Isaac Medeiros  build a product and launch it for live streamers. He does a really informative concise breakdown of how he did it. 

Finally, make sure to check out Max Katz who also contributed to the resource section that help you automate sending text messages as notifications or other use cases. 

Take these, re-create them and then tweak them for your own idea.

I’ll be adding more of the best no code actual applications created by some insanely talented Makers who launched using Twilio as part of their side project stack.

What advantage do you have using this stack? Isaac provides helpful advice: “Iteration/Speed: NoCode is lightning fast. If I built RingDaddy with code, it would have taken several weeks. Instead, I built it over a single weekend. This gave me time to get to market quicker and focus almost entirely on the business/marketing logic.”

“I’ve used the part of this stack in a previous project: Zapier and Twilio. Zapier is key to simplifying sending text messages with Twilio. Twilio is a bit intimidating if you are not a developer and you’d like to try and send text messages. Zapier is a gamechanger to be able to send text messages because you can build the entire workflow in Zapier.”

Automated Text Messaging App

Full stack tutorial: Carrd>Typeform>Zapier>Twilio

+ Twilio is essential to launching an app that sends text messages. Twilio was easy enough to quickly create a custom phone number, get API authorization connected to Zapier and also has a nifty dashboard to track text messages sent. 

+ Twilio used in association with Zapier makes it possible to do these things: 1) create logic of when to send text messages 2) House the copy and text in the message 3)trigger when to send the text messages using Twilio as a sender
