It was brought to my attention after our post yesterday about text messaging for churches that many of our churches are using text messaging for an important thing that we forgot to mention. Several churches have had a lot of success following up with guests by text message.
Most churches already have a plan in place for collecting visitor information (including a phone number), but few churches actually use that information for anything other than their records.
With Mobile Text Alerts, you can follow up with that visitor with a quick text message “Thanks for visiting us this Sunday, please let us know if you have any questions that we can help with!”
This gives an instant boost to your visitors feeling welcomed by your church. Thanks Eric for the tip!
What other ways are you using text alerts at your church that might be beneficial for other churches?
