Send a Mobile Text, Instant Message, Email or ALL to broadcast:
It’s time to upgrade your church’s communications to an integrated All-In-One messaging service. Stop paying for a separate emailing service, a separate mobile texting service, and we’re the only IM service out there.
Create your church’s own Mobile Keywords
You’ve seen the same technology on American Idol or heard it on the radio. People can text your keyword to 69302 to join your mobile distribution list and start receiving your messages on their phones. You can also setup an automated response to be texted back to them.
Setup a unique mobile keyword for your:
- Jr. high and high school ministry
- College youth group
- Young adult and singles ministry
- Small groups
- Worship team
- Church staff
- Entire congregation
Here’s an example:
- Someone texts “YourChurchName” to 69302
- They then receive an automated message (Ex: Our Youth group meets Mondays in the rec hall. Call 555-1212 for more details! Be sure to invite a friend!”
- The person has now provided opt-in permission to receive information from your church.
Create an Online Sign up Form to Collect Contact Info
Create an Online Sign Up page for every distribution list you want to create. You can customize the background of each sign up page differently to match each and every occasion and your website’s design. Collect mobile numbers, IM screen names, and email addresses. You can collect one type of contact information, or ALL of them.
Just as in e-mail marketing, you want to be very careful how often you are contacting your opt-in recipients. Just because they opted in, doesn’t mean that they want to get blasted daily with messages. This why Pocket-Promo has developed proprietary software that permits you to have your first reply message asks how often your opt-in participant would like to be contacted and automatically puts them into the appropriate distribution list. This helps to dramatically decrease the number of opt-outs that you have and makes your campaign that much more successful.
