Digital Marketing Tips to Support Your Nonprofit Gain More Awareness 

Nonprofits and charities have been struggling to stay afloat with services being postponed and fundraising efforts being scaled back during the COVID 19 pandemic. Fortunately, in this digital age, there are many free and inexpensive ways to get the word out about your organisation and improve your fundraising efforts to support your cause. Texting is one of those cost-effective ways to connect with people in your database during times like these. Text message marketing is more personal than other forms of marketing and can help businesses gain traction by adopting a marketing strategy that is structured and efficient.

Make Opting-in Process a Simple One

It’s easy to add an opt-in field that’s specific to text messaging on your form. After requesting the cell phone number from the supporter, ask them to check a box if they wish to receive messages from you. If users choose opt-in on the form, you can go ahead and add their number to your contact lists for text messaging. Keyword registration is another simple way of signing up supporters for text messages. To opt-in, the supporters must simply submit a special keyword to the text message number of the organisation. They can subscribe to your contact list for text messages, and it will count as consent for receiving texts.

Be Transparent About Your SMS Programme

Another important point to keep in mind is texting during normal business hours and being transparent about what consumers can expect from your service. That way, nobody feels resentful about your text message programme and fewer people will feel the need to respond “STOP.”  Make sure your customers don’t feel like they’re overwhelmed at odd hours with texts or stuck in an annoying subscription.
