The Most Personal SMS Software
No Short Codes
Short codes are 5 digit numbers with limited functionality. Why send a text that is obviously system generated? We’ve engineered intelligent software with more functionality than a short code so you can build relationships.
Every study shows personalization increases conversions. 91% of people have their phones within arm’s length at any given time. You know you can reach the donors, now the question is HOW to reach them most effectively. Upload all your data and the USE that data bring in money.
The beauty of scheduled messaging for text fundraising is you do not have to be a slave to your own schedule. Pick a time that is most effective for each time zone and don’t worry about what is on your calendar. Never let being busy be a barrier to success.
Most texting platforms and short codes do not allow you to “chat” back and forth. Contacts can’t ask questions like “can you meet at 4?” or “how do I buy?” Texting Base empowers you and your important contacts to text bi-directionally with ease.
It’s refreshing for donors when every text is not asking for cash. Showing some appreciation with a happy birthday text can go a long way towards letting your donors know you care. Don’t let them be “just another number,” make sure your donors know they mean more to you!
Each month of the year brings new holidays and new reasons to reach out to your potential donors. Use these opportunities to your benefit by wishing them well on all the major holidays. Earning trust and loyalty is done over time, use time to your advantage and raise more money!
Organizing your groups takes minutes. Structure your lists by common interests so your message is more targeted than ever. Structure your list by geography so you can schedule messages at the perfect time. Managing groups has never been so easy.
We are the industry leaders in artificial intelligence (AI) compliance technology. Everything from smart “opt outs” to duplicate removal technology is covered with an eye on protection. We make it simple to effectively manage your compliance within the TCPA.
Ten Ways Texting Base Creates Sales Opportunities for Fundraising
Maybe you have one campaign and maybe you have many. Organize all your contacts by different groups to make reaching everyone in a group a few clicks away. Working smart is always a good idea. Bring a level of efficiency and power to your fundraising that has been missing.
Read rates, click through rates and cost per customer acquired are all best with texting. Raising money is all about results. Reach people where the messages will be read and responded to at a higher level than any other type of marketing. 98% of text messages are read. Get your message efficiently, and watch the results for yourself.
I bet it’s a lot. Over the years you have accumulated a lot of names and numbers. We have combined the efficiency of a “mass text” with power of a personal message to help you reach each meaningful donor with an equally meaningful message. The end result is more money for your cause and less time spent raising that money.
You have lots of data and you may not realize how powerful it is. Do you know what causes your donors support? Do you know what area they live in? You can now use all data you have collected over the years to reach each person with a meaningful message that is powerful the personal.
If you have ever felt anxiety as you tried to staff up a telemarketing group, you will appreciate not having to staff up to manage your text fundraising campaign. The system will do what you want to do, when you want to do it at a lower cost 100% of the time.
With each number reaching up to 3600 contacts per hour, and over 19% of those messages clicking to your website the last issue you will have is having the power to deliver your fundraising message. Worry about staff, management, calls to action, websites, messages and any number of other issues…not your campaign engine.
We all do it…so do you! Why fill a room with telemarketers and harass people on their phones all day? It costs an average of $309.28 to gain a customer using telemarketing. Even if they like the cause, they still don’t want to talk to a stranger about donations before work, during work, after work or during dinner. Be polite AND be more effective, with a text message campaign.
Last year more money was spent on direct mail than any other type of marketing. Mail is expensive. You have paper, ink, time printing and stuffing envelopes and then the cost of postage. As postage costs keep rising, the 3.4% response rate becomes less and less impressive. Get more production at a fraction of the cost, and save a whole lot of trees, ink and time in doing so!
Emails get responded to on average in 2.5 days according to some studies. In the meantime, only 22% of emails get read. Over 78% of emails are spam. Don’t bring down the value of your cause to that level where people delete your message without even reading it. Your cause is worthwhile; make sure you get your message delivered. No marketing medium delivers as well as texting.
Building relationships takes time. Send your potential donors meaningful messages on birthdays and holidays. Let them know you care about more than their wallets, and when it comes time to support you the odds are higher they will be there. Schedule messages all year round, and build those meaningful relationships over time. Live Efficient.
