May is the month of giving, and Burst SMS makes it easy to collect donations with GiveEasy.
Donations can be sent via SMS through the following methods:
1) Inbound SMS donations
Use a special keyword to get the attention of your target audience. In the example above, once the user sends the world OLIVE to 0417666938, they will be sent an automated reply-back with a link to a payment page:
Once the donor signs up the first time around, they will no longer need to fill in the form for any future donations. A tax receipt will also be instantly emailed to the donor upon payment.
2) Outbound SMS donations
Use outbound messaging to send an SMS to all your subscribers. If they have previously donated before, their next donation can be completed within the SMS.
3) Recurring SMS donations
This makes monthly payments easy. Once a donor signs up for recurring payments, they will receive automatic monthly SMS reminders, allowing them to skip or cease payments. This makes process easier to control for the donor, and keeps the cause on their minds.
4) Community Fundraising via SMS
Unique keywords can be generated and fully integrated to compliment URL fundraising links. Each fundraiser will receive their own unique keyword, which will be linked to a master campaign. Multiple fundraising groups can be created.
