25 Quick Response Text Message Samples for Your Business

25 Quick Response Text Message Samples for Your Business
13 min read

Quick response text messages, sometimes known as auto-reply messages or auto-reply texts, are a predefined reply typically sent to customers based on a keyword or trigger. 

In addition to providing people with information about your business, quick response texts help to facilitate communication between your business and leads, customers, or partners. They can also improve the customer support experience through self-service options. 

So, how can you start using them for your business? In this post, we’ll provide you with 25 quick response text message samples you can start using today.

Why Should You Use Automatic Responses? 

Quick response texts are valuable to your business for a few reasons.

First, they allow you to set expectations, providing information about everything from business hours to upcoming promotions. This transparency also helps to improve engagement, keeping people in the loop and assuring them they aren't being ignored. Additionally, automatic responses greatly reduce the chance of mistakes when responding to inquiries. 

Quick response messages can also save you a great deal of time. Instead of manually responding to each customer inquiry or request, you can simply automate the process. This allows you and your team to focus time and attention on other areas of your business, saving energy for the most important customer interactions. 

Best Practices for Quick Response Messages

When crafting templates for your quick response texts, keep the following in mind: 

  • If you're sending texts rather than messages, it's usually better to use SMS as opposed to MMS, as the latter generally requires a cellular data connection.
  • If you include links in your auto-responses, avoid using URL shorteners. Some carriers may flag links from sites such as bit.ly as spam.
  • While some of the templates below can be used verbatim, we recommend tweaking them so they reflect the language, personality, and tone of your brand. 
  • Only provide relevant information in your responses. Someone asking for information on a specific service, for instance, likely won't want to immediately receive information about your other services at the same time. 
  • Keep your responses as concise as possible.
