Webinar: Utilizing Texting for Higher Ed Institutions


Discover the benefits of texting for Higher Education Institutions! Join our webinar 6/7/18

Young Americans are more likely to text than use any other form of communication. Implementing a text messaging strategy is, therefore, more important than ever for any higher education institution. Enabling students to text directly with administrative and faculty staffs allows them to quickly get answers to their questions and concerns and to stay informed with daily school and campus activities. Text messaging has become a crucial communications channel your staff can use to connect and engage with new students during the prospecting phase and throughout their college years. It also helps them foster lifelong relationships with school alumni.   

But the benefits of text-enabling aren’t limited to just connecting with your students; it’s about students being able to reach you, and empowering faculty, staff, and students to establish two-way texting conversations. The question most higher education institutions ask isn’t “should we support a text messaging (SMS) channel,” it’s “how do we support such a communications channel?” The success of implementing text messaging as a new communications channel depends significantly on your institution’s commitment to it and your overall implementation strategy.
