Text messaging is a great way to announce events or activities to your customers/clients, as well as your staff or volunteer team. Let your volunteers know when the next cleaning day is for your facility, or let your subscribers know when the next farmer’s market will be held in the community. Announce new videos uploaded to your social media page, or let people know when the next staff meeting will be.
Let staff, volunteers, and clientele know about important updates. Need to reschedule the “English as a second language” class? Need to postpone volunteer orientation? Need to let clients know details about an upcoming event? Text alerts are just the thing. You can even ask for an RSVP to events, and subscribers’ responses will be sent to your email.
Text alerts allow non-profits to advertise affordably, conveniently, and effectively. It’s an easy way to get the word out about new products, services, and promotions to people who might be able to benefit from your organization.
How can you get the word out about event cancellations or facility closings? Perhaps there is severe weather that makes driving on the roads unsafe. Maybe staff training needs to be canceled because the supervisor is ill. Whatever the issue, text alerts can be your solution.
In the event of an emergency, text alerts can be vital to help people be safe. If it’s severe weather, nearby crime, potential threats to staff or clients—text messaging can let people know immediately what to do in response.
