In this guide you will learn how to integrate Twilio (an SMS provider) into the Friendly Automate marketing platform and how to actually send SMS with Friendly Automate.

You

Setup Twilio and connect it with Friendly Automate

As a first step, let's create an account on Twilio: https://www.twilio.com/try-twilio

Just click on the link in the email.

This is the part, when you need to verify your phone number as well:

You can skip the onboarding process, just click on 'to the dashboard'

On the next screen we need to get our number. If you are just testing, you can go for the test number. But if you want to send SMS in a live environment, you'd need to get your own. Anyway, as first step, we'll get the trial number.
