Start MOBILE-izing Your Base: Learn How to Get Started with SMS

Thursday, April 25, 1 to 2 PM Eastern

A key tenet of marketing is to “meet people where they are.” With 95 percent of Americans owning a mobile phone, organizations without a mobile program are missing key opportunities to engage.

Attend this session with guest expert Sandi Fox to make sure you aren’t missing out! We will cover why your organization should be investing in mobile, and how you can use it effectively.  

Mobile may be the best direct response tool to engage and reach donors, supporters, volunteers, and voters, and to motivate them to take action. With response rates four times higher than email, more and more nonprofits are beginning to integrate mobile into their digital programs.

But it’s hard to know which of the many available digital platforms is best for your nonprofit.  Should you use a peer-to-peer platform, or a broadcast platform? Depending on your resources, audience, and goals, maybe you should be using both? How can you best integrate mobile (SMS) into your existing digital programs for advocacy, fundraising, education, and cultivation?   

We will teach you all you need to know about the differences between peer-to-peer vs. broadcast mobile platforms, mobile best practices, growth strategies and how both types of mobile (SMS) can be used effectively by your organizations.
