Efficient and personal: SMS for events
Summer party, fundraising gala, annual spring cleaning? Every great event depends on the guests. An invitation via SMS has a particularly personal effect and is more likely to be answered than an email. With the help of placeholders, you can make your message even more personal and address the respective recipients with their first or last name, for example, or insert the name of their sponsored animal.
Of course, you can also search for volunteers for your event via SMS. Make sure to only send those kind of message to recipients that they have agreed to receive. For example, if someone has given their consent to receive SMS from their sponsored animal, this does not automatically mean that you may send other SMS to the recipient. This is especially true if your message contains promotional content.
The good news: If recipients have consented to receive SMS from you, the response rate is much higher than with an email, for example.
Advantage for animal shelters: people respond faster to inquiries or invitations.
