How to Text Donors and Not Be Intrusive

About This Webinar

Have you ever considered sending a mass text message to your donors and then decided not to because you didn't want to be intrusive?

Me too.

It is understandably terrifying the first time you send a text message to your supporters.

It is not unreasonable to have all sorts of unpleasant thoughts and feelings swirling around in your body as you think about doing something for the first time.

Especially sending a mass text to a list of people you need in the future to keep the lights on.

Questions like, "What will my donors think about me?", "What if they all unsubscribe?" or even "What are my risks -- will I be fined if I do this?"

These are big questions. Very big.

Changes in 2022

The truth is, there are some significant changes afoot on how and when you can send texts.

Privacy laws, user data tracking, and communications trends are constantly evolving.

Unfortunately, these changes are not just impacting your use of text messaging. How you track and interact with your donors, even over email, is changing too. As you consider SMS and other digital communications in 2022 and beyond, you need to be aware of these changes.
