You may be familiar with ‘group text’ on your cell phone, but nothing compares to group text on MemberPlanet when it comes to functionality, speed, and cost. Now, MemberPlanet allows you to send unlimited texts, instantly and simultaneously, from your MP account. Here are the top 3 uses for this forward-looking new feature:
1) Alerts: More than ever, schools need the ability to reach parents and students immediately in the event of an emergency. Whether it’s a delay for inclement weather, a power outage, or a real emergency, text messages are the fastest way to spread an alert.
2) Group coordination. Whether you are coordinating a conference, reunion, charity event or party, group messaging is an awesome way to keep things running smoothly. Arrange for text alerts to go off at designated times so everyone in the crowd knows where to go and when. Segment your contact list so different group members are given personalized instructions for his or her schedule. It’s simple and easy to do one MP.
3) Reminders. Is your registration coming to a close? A volunteer event starting early in the morning? Shoot a reminder text to make sure everyone on your list sets their alarm clock or gets to their registration on time!
These are just a few of the many uses for group text. Unlike other providers, MemberPlanet allows you to send a text to up to 200 contacts – free! For each additional 200 contacts, it’s only $5 per month. If you would like to give it a try, click here
