HiTide, formally HiBeam, is a direct message (DM) automation platform that helps brands convert Instagram followers into SMS subscribers.
With plug-and-play engagement post templates and DM sequences, HiTide helps you effortlessly acquire new SMS subscribers, reactivate past subscribers, and win lifelong customers.
With our HiTide integration, you can:
- Convert your Instagram followers to SMS subscribers using TCPA compliant, automated direct messages.
- Run Instagram-native giveaway, early access, restock, and drop campaigns that result in fast, conversational Postscript subscriber growth.
- Grow your SMS list with compelling and engaging messaging automations for both organic posts and paid click-to-message campaigns.
In this article, we'll walk you through how to set up your HiTide x Postscript integration.
Create a Postscript API Key
- Select your Shop Name in the side menu of your Postscript dashboard, then select API.
- Select Create Security Key Pair on the right side of the page, then confirm your action by selecting Yes.
- Add a label to your API key so you can track where this API key is being used.
- Select Show in the Private Key column to reveal your API key. Copy this key or write it down—you'll need to enter it in HiTide later.
Configure Postscript in HiTide
