Bulk SMS can be an effective way to inform supporters about your charity’s annual report and financial statements. Here are the steps to follow:
- Collect phone numbers: First, you need to collect the phone numbers of your supporters. Make sure you have their permission to contact them via SMS.
- Choose a bulk SMS service: There are several bulk SMS services available online. Choose one that fits your needs and budget.
- Compose your message: Keep your message brief and to the point. Inform supporters about your charity’s annual report and financial statements and provide a link to where they can access them. Highlight the achievements of your charity during the reporting period and the impact their support has made.
- Personalize your message: Address your supporters by their name in the message. This will make them feel more connected to your charity.
- Include a call-to-action: Include a call-to-action in your message, such as “Check out our annual report and see the impact your support has made” or “Learn about our achievements and financials for the past year.”
- Schedule your message: Choose a date and time when most of your supporters are likely to be available to receive the message.
- Send the message: Once you have composed and scheduled your message, send it to your supporters.
- Follow up: Follow up with supporters who have accessed the annual report and financial statements. Thank them for their support and encourage them to continue supporting your charity.
Remember to respect your supporters’ privacy and preferences. If they opt-out of receiving SMS messages, make sure you remove their phone number from your list. Also, avoid sending too many messages as it may lead to supporters feeling overwhelmed and opting-out.
