Pandemic or not, it’s hard to deny the effectiveness of text communication. With 99% of text messages being opened (and 90% within the first three minutes!), it’s easy to see why texting is a valuable tool to spread event information, alerts, updates, and reminders.
There’s no doubt that texting is the most direct way to make contact with people today. Texting, by nature, is also a more intimate form of communication, more personal than email. This might be the reason texting can be extremely effective for churches.
When done right… effective guest follow up can be completed in less than 45 seconds per guest. It sounds crazy, but it’s not. Churches all across the county are leveraging technology to do it every week.
