Anybody with a smartphone probably already knows how to text, but how do you know what to write in the message and how to write it? Where does the money come from? How does the text find its way to the charity? The process can seem a bit confusing, but sending a text message donation is only slightly more complicated than sending a regular text message. There are just a few slight differences. https://www.gmg.cm/blog/how-do-text-donations-work

Virtually all the research out there says that your nonprofit will raise more money with an SMS donation service in the mix than it will without one. Offering SMS donations to your donors increases the number of opportunities your organization will have to collect donations from your prospects.

SMS donations also increase your overall reach, giving you new audiences that you wouldn't otherwise be able to connect with. As people move away from traditional giving and towards mobile giving, you'll be best positioned to meet prospective donors where they are. http://www.gmg.cm/blog/do-sms-donations-work

By posting on our social pages, we lend you some of our social proof, which increases your nonprofit's credibility. For example, if a Twitter feed of 2,500 followers or a Facebook business page with 2,600 fans is mentioning your nonprofit, then that can influence the perception of your brand. http://www.gmg.cm/blog/how-to-set-up-a-text-to-donate-program-for-your-nonprofit

One thing we offer that our competitors don't is donation collection assistance. If you purchase either our Smart or Pro Plan, you'll get several hours of donation collection assistance (and social media promotions) as part of your package. This means we will actively text your subscribers and prompt them to complete any outstanding donations. http://www.gmg.cm/blog/how-to-collect-donations

More than 8 trillion SMS messages are sent every year, despite the tech’s antiquity. Texting won’t die until something comes along that’s radically better and just as painlessly universal. https://www.wired.com/2017/02/google-support-for-rcs/

A Qatarian traveler recently found Text Engine for his feature phone. Now he has the richness of the entire web by text messaging when he’s not home in Qatar. It’s one more way to reduce costs. For budget travelers, it’s a dream come true. https://www.textengine.info/blog/dumbphone-use-in-qatar
