Our Features:


The first step in elevating business through Rainman SMS text marketing is picking a keyword. This keyword should be a word or phrase that representations your auto service shop and that is easy for your clients to remember.

The keyword is what allows customers to opt in to receive future texts. If your keyword is confusing or hard to remember prospective leads won’t be able to opt in and your client list will suffer. Let say your auto service shop is called “Frank’s Auto Service”. Your keyword could be something like “FRANKSAUTO” or simply “FRANKS”. A client can then text “FRANKS” to a phone number unique to your auto service shop to receive updates about their vehicle or new promotions your shop is offering.

Texts are delivered instantly, receiving faster attention and building deeper, more personal connections with clients.

Auto Reply

When a client texts their keyword to opt in you don’t have to worry about replying to each and every message. This is where our auto reply feature comes in. When a customer texts in your keyword they will get an instant auto reply. This auto reply is a prewritten message that confirms their subscription, sends them any information you would like to share and a short compliance statement.

Texts are short and can be read in seconds, making the impression your shop wants.


With the Rainman SMS one-to-many feature you can type up one message and send it out to a mass number of current and potential clients. If your automotive shop is having a sale on your A/C services and repairs this summer, you want as many people as possible to know. The one-to-many feature gives you the power to reach hundreds of potential clients by simply typing one high-value message.

People grab for their phones when waking up in the morning, when walking out the door for the day, and a message from your auto service shop could be the notification they are checking. Don’t get stuck in your client’s junk mailbox, get seen with Rainman SMS.

The Message

When drivers have car trouble, the first thing they will turn to for a solution is their phones. Being that 97% of Americans have their mobile phones within reach 24/7, your call-to-action has never been closer to clients. Text marketing is a simple way to be the auto shop that comes to clients’ minds.

Your message is one of the most critical aspects of your text marketing plan. A well-throughout, incentive-based SMS can streamline your shops workflow while simultaneously allowing you to maintain a loyal client base.

We know you have a lot going on at your auto service shop and you're probably wondering how a text message can help improve the efficiency of your day to day tasks.
