Case Study (1)

Client: Bible Society via Sujet

Service: SMS Automation

Bible Society is Australia’s oldest institution and is concerned with providing people with access to the Bible and the ability to understand the love of Jesus. They’re passionate about finding new and creative ways to help Australia engage with the Bible. They work off a donor model in order to fund their social campaigns such as overseas literacy or helping battered women. Bible Society partnered with Sujet, a narrative consultancy, to help spread the word about their organisation and their causes.

Spotlight Service

The example below shows how you can set-up an engaging SMS sequence. This process is fully automated, and for the purposes of this example, it’s designed to check up on how your religious community is feeling.

If the recipient replies back the number “5”, it would trigger your corresponding automated sequence #5, which will send them an instant reply. Custom variables such as [First Name], [Author], and [Inspirational Quote] were used to show how your messages can be personalised with pre-existing data. You can make these sequences as simple or intricate as you like.

Bonus option: Add SMS donations to the sequence, which helps raise funds for your community—is another popular option. Please note, this option is currently only available for Australia.
