SMS messaging (texting) has had a major impact on the way our society communicates and interacts as a whole and could also affect how organizations connect with their members, staff, donors, and volunteers. According to the Journal of Accountancy, the average American checks their phone 47 times a day, making SMS messaging the most effective form of communication today.
Studies show that 98% of text messages are opened (Source: The Daily Egg), and 90% are opened within 3 minutes of receipt. If you utilize a service like MojoTxt, texting can be an impactful tool for instant communication to people that need and want to connect with your organization. For instance, a member of your staff receives news that there is a need for more volunteers for an event that is happening that evening, with one quickly typed text or a quickly recorded video an entire list of people will know that help is needed. Your volunteers can reply directly to the message to let you know that they can help. With most people receiving texts on multiple devices (phones, watches, laptops, car stereos), connecting electronically has never been more instantaneous.
Since consumers are more likely to open text messages before any other form of mobile communication, (Source: Open Market) texting can be the most effective way to spread event information, alerts, updates, and reminders. Your organization can collect useful information through a well- rounded texting service like MojoTxt. By sending out electronic forms in a message, you can gather contact information from your guests, members, donors, or volunteers. If you wish to take your electronic communication further, MojoTxt can help with event registration and communication, gather live-poll surveys, as well as receive donations and event fees.
SMS messages have a 209% higher response rate than phone, email, or Facebook (Source: MobileXCo) making SMS messaging not only quick and easy but a highly effective way of keeping the information flowing to those who need it. That’s what it’s about; staying connected through communication. MojoTxt can help you stay connected. Quickly. Easily. Effectively. Happy connecting.
