Launching the Mosio for Events Display from a PowerPoint Presentation

We’ve had some clients ask the best way to launch their events display from inside of PowerPoint, Keynote, or other presentation software. Some have asked if they are able show the event’s screen inside of their presentation software. First, the reason we don’t recommend launching your text-to-screen display inside of PowerPoint, then onto our recommended way to do so.

Embedding Your Text-to-Screen Display in Powerpoint: Not Recommended

We understand that people have different reasons for wanting the functions and features they want, but we don’t recommend it for a pretty simple reason: Why try to replace the functions and flexibilities of a web browser through plugins and add-ons when a browser does the job perfectly? 

We pride ourselves in making things as simple and cost effective as possible without plugins, add-ins, Adobe Flash, ActiveX, or any additional tech wherever possible, so we recommend using your web browser for the screen you’re going to be projecting. The best feedback we get from clients is that our software is easy to use. We hope you agree.

BUT…If you absolutely must, we have information inside of the training guide PDF and a ink to a free PowerPoint add-in called LiveWeb.

Surveys via Text Messaging = Increased Truthfulness

Surveys via Text Messaging = Increased Truthfulness

Everyone is texting. With their friends, family, coworkers and businesses. It’s officially a comfortable communication method, used more than voice calls for the average American mobile user. But did you know it can actually help provide you with more truthful information when conducting surveys?

During elections, we hear about robocalls and the difference between polling companies because they call mobile phones as well as landlines. We consistently think “what about text messaging?” Besides the fact that it is illegal to randomly pick numbers and begin sending them text messages, we think it is a valuable medium for gathering data, especially from more people. Not everyone has a smart phone and even those who do still text.

Well a recent study from the University of Michigan showed not only that text messaging was a great method of gathering data via surveys, respondents were actually more truthful in their response. A quote from the researcher “so far it seems that texting may reduce some respondents’ tendency to shade the truth or to present themselves in the best possible light in an interview—even when they know it’s a human interviewer they are communicating with via text.”

This is truly an amazing finding. Text messaging can help offer that additional social buffer of “safety” where another person is concerned and it is a medium that is rooted in personal communications.

If you are looking to offer surveys via text messaging, we can help you design and implement a solution that enables live “textchat” responses with interviewers or automated responses. Let us know what your text messaging survey goals are in a free consultation and we’ll put together a quick quote for you.

5 reasons text messaging is a better way to communicate with users than anything you’re using now

5 reasons text messaging is a better way to communicate with users than anything you’re using now

There are many ways to communicate with those around you, but if you’re running a organization that relies on quick interaction with you and your users, a more reliable, faster method may be needed on mobile devices. There are a few options to take when deciding what form of communication you’d like to use, text messaging is perfect for any sized organization, here are 5 reasons why:

1) Quick Response Times
Did you know that 90% of text messages are read within 10 minutes? And if you send a message that falls into that 10%, you’ll be happy to know that on average, people will look at their phones 150 times a day. Text messages to be replied to in real-time or from auto-responders and they’re cost effective. Because of these reasons, difference between the response time of emails or phone calls and text messages is phenomenal.

2) Multiple Streamlined Conversations at Once
Each person in your organization has the ability to answer just one phone call at once. Depending on the size of your organization, and the amount of customer interaction you’ll get, this may not be viable for you. With two-way text messaging, each staffer can engage in multiple text conversations at once, and they’ll be able to reply to new conversations while the first users take time to reply back.

3) Text Messages Keep Users in the Loop
While social media can be a great way to convey messages to your followers, you may not be reaching all of your users among all of the social noise. By texting instead, you’ll be able to send out messages about updates for your organization, new services, and any information you think could be useful to your users and ensure they’ll read it. With certain types of text messaging software, users are able to reply back to you and start a private conversation to get any questions they may want answered.


4) Make Things Easier for Your Users and Staff
Communication through phone calls can be time consuming, costly and an inefficient way to share electronic data. Users have to write down any information they need, and in the heat of the moment they could easily get information wrong, ask for it to be repeated and grow frustrated. Phone calls have their place, but in many communications all that is required is short, quick information, making text messaging the perfect medium to reach those on-the-move.

5) Provide Great Service and Support
No matter what service you provide, good communication with users is incredibly important. Great service will determine whether users feel comfortable to come back to you again, and this can be difficult to achieve with phone calls or email. If you have multiple users trying to access your line, waiting times may turn users around, something that can be easily fixed with text messaging. Email can be used to reply quickly to users, but without having an obvious notification, users may not notice they have a reply to the email they’ve sent and the reply times between you and your customer could be hours or even days. With text messaging, you’ll be able to provide a much better experience for your users and hopefully it’ll be one they would be happy to come back to.

There are many ways to communicate with your users, but when it comes to reaching them everywhere in the quickest amount of time, nothing beats text messaging. If you host events, conferences or meetings, text messaging is a great way to engage your attendees and increase audience participation.

Texting Can Save Lives by Preventing Youth Suicide


With frequent headlines condemning texting due to everything from poor grammar to car accidents caused by texting while driving, texting may seem more like a curse than a blessing. If used where teens and young adults can most use the help, however, texting could actually save lives.

Youth Suicide is a Serious Concern

Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for youth ages 10-24, according to the CDC, resulting in the loss of about 4,600 young lives every year. Even more at risk are LGBT youth, who are 4 times more likely to attempt suicide than their straight peers due to bullying, harassment, abuse, and other victimization.

Youth Choose to Communicate by Text

The Pew Research Center reports that over 3 in 4 teens ages 12-17 have a cellphone and a sizable portion (25% ) access the internet mostly from their phone. This is especially important when considering that 71% of teens say the home computer they use most often is shared with other family members, offering them little privacy.

A whopping 75% of all teens text, as another Pew study found, with older teens (ages 14-17) texting a median of 100 texts a day. Furthermore, only 14% use a landline to talk with friends.

Texting for Suicide Prevention

In recent years, instant messaging as a method of suicide prevention has taken root in an attempt to each more people who may be more comfortable with communication over the internet rather than over the phone. While hotlines and instant messaging are admirable efforts, they may be missing the mark on helping this critical age group.

In northeastern Minnesota, several nonprofits and agencies have already had success with TXT4LIFE, the text-message option as part of their crisis hotline system. The text option is more popular, logging as much as 33 times as many text sessions as phone calls. In 2012 alone, TXT4LIFE aided 1,985 youth seeking help.

Given that youth are especially susceptible to suicide and avid users of text messaging, using text messaging as a suicide prevention tool is not only a possibility but a necessity.

  • 90% are opened/read within 10 minutes.
  • Compared to email’s 10% open/read rate.
  • Coupons, Offers and Loyalty Programs = Redeemed 8x more than emails
  • Better response rate than other calls to action (phone numbers, web-based calls to action)
  • On average, smartphone users check their phones 150 times a day!


  • Great foundation, so much more can be done beyond the keyword + short code.
  • “Traditional” (even though still new) – Send additional information: contact info, mobile web links, forms, videos etc.
  • Pre-Screener surveys with filtered results sent to the nearest site asap.
  • Questions and Answers, two way interaction.
  • Opt people in for alerts and reminders lists.


  • Encourage people with conditions to ask questions and get responses.
  • People interested in finding out more about clinical trials in general. What they are, how they can participate.


  • Helpful Info About Health: Gather subscribers to tips on living with specific conditions relevant to studies coming up.
    • Great Example from Pharma Marketing: Novartis and their Pollen Count text message alert service.
  • Surrogates: 50% of people who look up health info do so on behalf of another person. “Living and supporting someone with ______.”
  • Build Your Own List: Build your own list of people to send alerts to for new studies. Gather specific information during registration to ensure the studies are relevant.
  • Self-Serve Reminders: Create a self-serve health reminders service where people choose the type of reminders (medication, exercise, etc) they get. Use the channel to promote new studies coming up.

Mosio Announces True Two-Way Text Messaging Platform

Mosio Announces True Two-Way Text Messaging Platform

Software enables global, interactive TextChat messaging between organizations and mobile users for efficient, low-cost communications.


SAN FRANCISCO, CA – July 24, 2013 – Mosio, an award-winning mobile software company, announces its True Two-Way Text Messaging solution, TextChat, for interactive conversations between organizations and their mobile users, including customers and staff alike. The easy-to-use, web-based platform enables low-cost communications with users globally in 21 countries.

There are many misconceptions about text messaging solutions, not all of which are equal. Some services may technically be considered two-way but do not actually allow for dynamic TextChat exchanges. And while some providers claim to offer global coverage, there may be additional fees incurred by the end user for international text messaging.

“Mosio’s two-way text messaging technology enables our clients to engage in threaded, interactive ‘TextChat’ conversations with their mobile users,” said Noel Chandler, CEO and Co-Founder of Mosio. “If those users are in one of the countries Mosio covers, they are texting to and receiving from a number in their own country, thereby avoiding international fees.”

The Mosio dashboard makes it easy to connect and communicate with mobile users. Some of the software’s features include customizable auto-responders, canned response templates and an 800+ term “textspeak” translator for text messaging acronyms. Organizations’ staff can respond to text messages or proactively send messages to customers and employees via one-to-one or subscriber alerts features.

Mosio’s software is ideal for customer support, health services, clinical research and workforce communications. Other services include text alerts, reminders, updates and surveys. Organizations can try out the TextChat technology with a free, 14-day trial.

Mosio’s True Two-Way Text Messaging™ Coverage | 27 Countries and Counting

Mosio’s True Two-Way Text Messaging Coverage


What is True Two-Way Text Messaging?
Many mobile messaging companies claim that they have global text messaging capabilities. While it may be technically accurate, in many cases it requires the end user to text to a UK long code, incurring international text messaging fees, not the best user experience, especially after they get their bill.

Some text messaging companies claim to have two-way text messaging, but their solutions fall short after Keyword Post >> Auto-Reply. While Post and Reply is technically two way text messaging, it doesn’t include conversational, engaging text messaging where staff can have an active “textchat” interaction with their customers, employees or mobile audience.

Mosio’s True Two-Way Text Messaging™ enables organizations to deploy interactive textchat text messaging where the end user is sending and receiving text messages with a number in their country, minimizing the cost to them and our client.

Your staff login to your web-based Mosio dashboard, taking advantage of Mosio’s time saving auto-responders, canned response/answer templates, collaboration-friendly features and our 800+ term “textspeak” translator to quickly translate unknown text messaging acronyms.

How Text Messaging Improves Guest Services and Process Efficiencies in Hotels


In a short “Ways and Methods” blog series, we’ve compiled a list of our 3 articles about how text messaging improves guest services and process efficiencies at hotels. We’re not talking about mobile marketing, sign up subscribers and send them blasts, these are examples of how you can create a two-way, interactive text messaging conversation with guests to provide them with better service and also to collect insightful feedback from them about their stay with you.

4 Ways to Increase Hotel Staff Process Efficiencies with Text Messaging

7 Methods Hotels Can Implement to Improve Guest Satisfaction Using Mobile Text Messaging

5 Ways Hotels Can Use Text Messaging to Increase Revenue

Text messaging is the best and most efficient way to reach and communicate with the largest number of hotel guests. Text messaging is accessible in ways mobile apps will never be and it is available on 99% of all mobile phones. That doesn’t mean you should give guests your phone number and have them text you directly. Well, you can, but that doesn’t scale. You can use two-way text messaging software built for collaboration so your staff can receive and respond to text messages from your guests. Your guests use their mobile phones, your staff use any internet connected device. Your guests deserve great service and your staff deserve great communication tools to deliver that service. Two way text messaging software enables you to achieve both!

Happy Texting!
