This isn’t really the Christmas Mass list of course. This is just a demonstration I knocked together to show the sort of thing we could do. The bulk text message you received works out at around 4p per person, and is automatically individualised to each recipient, addressing them by name. It is also GDPR compliant as they have the option to remove themselves from future messages if they wish to, and the removal is automated so it requires no effort from us.The research shows text messages are still read by more than 98% of people who receive them, which make them very useful for important announcements and news. If we could encourage people to register and give us their mobile phone numbers this could potentially be a very valuable tool available at minimal cost.
Let me know what you think.
