The Art of Eventing: Organize, Promote, and Manage with Conversational Text Messaging
Events, in many cases, are the best way to understand the landscape ahead of a cause-based organization’s work. Whether in-person or virtual, attending events gives your audience insight and credibility to the work that you do, the cause, and the heart of the movement. Events have always been and will always be a place to educate, advocate, and mobilize action in the masses. But now we find ourselves in the wake of COVID-19, and while the world is reopening, events are suspended in limbo questioning whether or not it’s safe to be in-person sharing physical space with others again. This presents unique obstacles for organizations looking to press play on their event calendars in Q3 and Q4. Right now, whether your support base calls for in-person events, virtual events, or a hybrid of the two, peer-to-peer text and video enables groups to reemerge from COVID-19 by engaging supporters instantly through a human-to-human connection at scale.

“Texting helps us connect with and touch our supporters in a different way. In the peer-to-peer space, relationships are the main thing we’re trying to build. This is a tool to help us build those relationships.” — Noel Beebe, Senior Director for Digital Fundraising and Constituent Event for the Alzheimer’s Association
In the wake of 2020, the way organizations manage events is different, but the best way to reach supporters for event involvement remains the same.
