How Events Uses Text Messaging

Organizations of all kinds use text messaging for their event needs. Whether you are an event venue, a conference, or an organization that puts on events, text messaging is a crucial channel for sending event reminders and promoting your events.

Promotional vs Transactional Text Messages

Promotional text messages are used to encourage attendance of your virtual event or in person events. Promotional or marketing text messages are great for keeping your audience aware of future events and getting them to sign up, RSVP, or purchase tickets to your events.

Transactional text messages are used to communicate event reminders and other event confirmations like purchases of tickets. Event reminder SMS platforms, like TextSpot, make it easy to send automated event reminders to your event attendees.

SMS marketing for events is easier with text messaging software that comes with a robust feature set. Learn more about text message software features below.

Bulk/Mass Texting

Send a bulk or a mass text message campaign to groups of hundreds or even thousands of contacts. Send reminders for your online events or in person event.

Recurring Texts

A recurring text or repeat text message is a message that can be set up to send to an individual or group of contacts at a regular interval for a set period of time. This could be useful for sending a regular text message reminder to a person or group of people that regularly meet together. Churches, schools, and other organizations can use this feature to send a recurring reminder text message for committee meetings, board meetings, etc.

Benefits of Text Messaging for Events & Event Venues

Your Benefits as an Organization

Effective Communication

SMS is one of the best marketing channels for event venues and any other organization that holds events regularly. Over 90% of text messages are read within 3 minutes of being received. There is not a more effective way to make sure your message is heard than SMS.

Cost Effective

While email marketing is typically cheaper, SMS is still affordable when you consider the cost of your marketing and communications. Email marketing, by comparison, won’t give you the same reach and ability to get your message heard as quickly as SMS. You can get started with SMS marketing for just a few dollars with TextSpot.

Time Saving

Scheduling and managing text message campaigns is incredibly simple. It’s much faster than email marketing because there is less design work. All you need to do is add or upload a group of contacts, then start scheduling your messages. You can send your first message or text campaign within minutes of creating an account.

Who Should Use SMS for Events?

Any organization that regular hosts or organizes events or meetings and event venues.

How To Be Successful

In order to successfully send event reminder SMS messages and marketing messages, you’ll need to make sure you are compliant with the latest SMS rules and regulations.
