I am a singer and my audience likes to request songs. I want to put a button on my page so they can text me their song request. I know I can do this on my website and they can email me their request, but the email does not get to me as fast as a text message

I expect there is a way, but it isn't built in. You would need to find some HTML code to embed a text message tool.

Hello Stephen2788,

You can "E-mail" to text. Basically setup the E-mail address as your (Cellphone number)@(Your Carrier) 

This website shows the SMS and MMS Gateway domains for Cell Carriers (would only need the mms). 
https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/how-to-send-e-mail-to-sms-text/

For instance if you use AT&T it would be 

1234567890@mms.att.net

FYI, It will sent Subject and Body of e-mail via Text. To make it easier you could edit the "Write a Message" / "Contact us" sections to a Text with minimal entry boxes. Maybe leave it to a Song request box and Submit?

Hope this helps!

Martin

Excellent reply Martin, my UK Company have used this process a lot to contact people via their mobile phones for a quickc response rather than having to wait until they check their emails..

mpalmi27, what I did forget to add to my comment above was, although I have used this method at work, it never occurred to me as a solution for Stephens question so once again well done you.
