Segment your guest database, send SMS messages with Twilio and more
Our July 2020 update upgrades your guest database with powerful filtering and guest segments. For the smart marketers, you can now send SMS messages using our Twilio integration and create even smarter third-party automations with Zapier.
With your all-new guest database, you can filter your guests based on any criteria and save them as a segment. Get a real-time reflection of your segments at any time and use them as Blast audiences and Interactions triggers.
By default, your guest database will have the following segments:
- 🌎 All Guests
- 🙂 New Guests
- 🤑 Loyal Guests
- 😟 Lost Guests
- 🎂 Upcoming Birthdays
- ✉️ Emails
- 📞 Phones
You can create your own segments at any time straight from your guest database.

With our new Twilio integration, you can quickly automate SMS sending to your guest database. It’s as simple as connecting your Twilio account to Beambox and then selecting a segment to use as a trigger. When a guest enters the segment for the first time, they’ll receive your message within a few quick seconds ⚡️
