Three minutes isn’t much. But OneCause mobile bidding software ensures that three minutes—only 180 seconds—is all you need to grab the attention of the majority of your event attendees and boost fundraising.
90% of text messages are read within three minutes. That’s why OneCause’s event and mobile bidding software offers nonprofits the ability to send unlimited event texts to attendees while their mobile auction is published. It’s a simple way to re-engage your guests and remind them that this is a fundraising event.
All text messages can be customized and scheduled to send from myOneCause Planner whenever you’re ready. So long as the attendee’s mobile phone numbers are registered in OneCause, he or she can receive your text messages, including the One-Click Login (OCL) and text outbid alerts for your event.
OneCause Experts recommend the following four tips for using texting to boost engagement:
Like Twitter posts, OneCause text messages are completely customizable up to 140 characters. They automatically include a personalized link allowing bidders to quickly and easily login the auction from their smartphones. Your OneCause Planner also provides the option to send each text message to all supporters, a select group (e.g. attendees, those checked in, etc.), or chosen individuals.
