5 Reasons Text Messaging is the Best Tool for your Event Surveys

Did you hear the news? Text messaging is now the best tool for your event surveys, and fortunately, the trend isn’t going away anytime soon. Event organizers understand that collecting data and feedback from attendees is extremely important, but were you aware that text messaging is the best way to complete this important task? We won’t put you on the spot for too long, instead, we will share the top five reasons text messaging is definitely the most effective tool for your event surveys. 

Reach Participants Anytime, Anywhere 

Let’s get real: We carry our phones with us everywhere we go. Since most attendees also keep their mobile phones with them at all times, using text messaging for event surveys just makes sense. 

Makes Completing Surveys Easy 

Due to the accessibility of mobile phones, text messaging is an extremely easy way for attendees to respond to survey questions. Most participants would agree that receiving conference survey questions via text sure does beat getting them through phone or email! 

Experience Quick Response Times 

When you make responding to an event evaluation easy, now is the time to get excited because you’ll be on your way to experiencing rapid response times in collecting valuable feedback. 

Obtain More Survey Results 

Did you know that text messaging is the preferred method of communication by virtually all consumers of every demographic? Given this well-know fact, there’s a greater chance that participants will actually complete the surveys if they are sent by text message. 

Maintain Easy, Ongoing Communications 

After using text messaging to collect data from participants, you’ll be able to keep in touch with them much easier. To ensure that the communication remains ongoing, remember to include a simple call to action at the end of the survey such as asking participants to subscribe to lists or visit your company on social media. 

Don’t Miss These Tips For Developing Great Event Survey Questions! 

Now that you have read all of this great information, don’t you agree that using text messaging for an event evaluation makes perfect sense? Before you dash off to integrate text messaging into your surveys, just remember to keep these important things in mind when creating your event questions. 

– Keep the meeting, event or conference survey questions short and sweet 

– Ensure that your collected data will be organized by using multiple choice questions 

– Make sure that the last question is a free response so that attendees will feel comfortable sharing unlimited honest feedback 

– Send a brief thank you message to participants and then encourage them to check out your social media or website in the text 

– Use software that enables you to send SMS surveys or a link to a mobile web survey for smartphone users.

4 Simple Church Service Improvements Using Text Messaging

A recent study concluded that roughly 98 percent of SMS messages are opened and read within about fifteen minutes of receipt. Given these eye-opening statistics, there’s no doubt that text messaging is the most direct way to communicate with almost everyone today. Throughout the country, many churches are recognizing the importance of text messaging to create a more interactive experience for their visitors and members. In fact, many churches use a two-way text messaging software known as Mosio Q&A, and they love it.

Here are Four Features of Mosio Churches Love

Text to Screen – text questions or comments and then project them onto a screen.

With our innovative text to screen feature, you can let your congregation do the talking. Throughout a service, bible study, or other church events, our system makes it easy to encourage audience participation when they use text messaging to send a comment or question. These comments and questions are then projected onto a large display screen. Not only will your congregation become more engaged, you will also obtain key feedback through a simple text to liven the event in real-time.

Surveys – collect data and information
Many churches would like to survey visitors and members to improve their community outreach plan. Did you know that Mosio offers a simple and powerful way for churches to collect this important data and information?

During the church event, our system enables you to display polls on different screens or monitors. Contrary to similar text messaging services, our platform allows you to include as many questions on the poll as you would like. That way you are able to gather as much information as possible from the attendees.

After a great church event has ended, you can use our system to determine how to improve future events by sending out a simple text message to the attendees.

Alerts – send out text message updates, information or newsletters
According to much research, text messaging alerts have a 99 percent open rate. When you have Mosio by your side, you can make sure that your newsletters never go unnoticed again with our great alerts feature. As more and more of your church members actually read your newsletter, you’ll notice a substantial increase in attendance for church events.

TextChat – interactive, two-way text messaging that can be received and responded to.

In today’s society, pastors and church leaders are busy, and often times, it’s difficult for them to return phone calls in a timely manner. By using Mosio’s interactive, two-way text messaging feature known as TextChat, church leaders will be able to receive and quickly respond to multiple questions and comments from various members.

As church members receive quick and fast responses to questions and concerns, they will be more than willing to continue using text messaging to communicate with the church. The ultimate result of TextChat is a church with improved engagement.

Due to the fact that this amazing feature allows you to communicate 10-15X more efficiently than phone calls, TextChat is also great for church hotlines and helplines.
