Mobile messaging for charities and 3rd sector

Save time and money using text messaging for your charity

Regardless of the charity in question, any given marketing campaign is only as effective as the consumers that see it; even the most worthwhile cause is doomed to failure and obscurity if the public is unaware of the key facts and associated details. This is where bulk SMS messaging comes in, offering an extremely easy means for important information and data to be fed directly to consumers. And when we say directly, we really do mean directly; send a text to 50 people and it will arrive in 5 seconds and be opened in the next 5 - how much longer would it take to contact that same 50 by phone? Or how long would it take them to receive and read an email? Save your staff and volunteers time and huge costs by incorporating SMS into your communications, helping them to spend time on the things that really matter.

In order to maximise the effectiveness and reach of your charity's marketing campaigns, mobile marketing offers the best return of investment in terms of both your marketing spend and time; the easy inclusion of attachments and links means that the public can also quickly act on the information you provide!

Easy to Use & Highly Effective - Excellent Value for Money

Textlocal's messaging service (TMS) is a delight to work with. It's very easy to use & interoperates easily for importing contact details. For us a relational organisation with over 300 direct members, and and active network members in the 000's, TMS is a value enterprise asset and great administration tool. Message scheduling, tracking & reporting capabilities are all indispensable features which have provided our charity with greater effectiveness, reach and visibility. The ease of integration with all the big social media platforms has enhanced our organisation's visibility & communication strategy. All these great capabilities have proven immense value by taking out undue administrative pain & pressure at very little cost. Lastly, we love the flexibility the pay as you go option offers!
