If you're trying to get the word out about an upcoming event, text marketing may not be the first thing you think of. Most organizations rely on emails, social media, phone calls, and direct mail to drive traffic. Texting is different, and complements, each of these tactics by providing the highest (98%) and the fastest (90% under 3 minutes) open rates. So why rely on one outreach tool, when you can make a bounce with texting.
Here are some ways make texting work for you and your event:
Increase Attendance with a Reminder Text
Text reminders are both easy to set up and very effective. With a mass texting service like EZ Texting, all you have to do is upload your opted-in contacts, write a message and hit send. You can also make recurring messages if you want.
Encourage Guests to Arrive on Time with Text Incentives
Encourage attendance by offering a special gift or prize to the first guests who arrive at your event. This motivates your audience to show up on-time! You can offer a discount, giveaway or special seating depending on what kind of event you are planning!
Boost Participation and Concession Sales with Texts
If you're running a deal on a concession item, an in-game contest, or a raffle you can increase participation by texting your guests while they're at the event. As long as your texts are relevant and helpful, your messages should be well received.

Adding text marketing to your mix can help your event succeed on a number of different fronts. Think about how you can use texting to get better results!
