By: Katie Blakeslee | 16 September, 2016

It’s no surprise that text-to-donate campaigns are on the rise. Whether it’s for a nonprofit or a political candidate, people want to donate via their mobile phones. So why not try text donations? Below are a few great reasons why text-to-donate campaigns are so successful and are continuing to be a favorite to donors and organizations.

  • Donors love it – Did you know that studies show that 85% of donors said their experience with text donating as excellent or good?


  • They’ll donate more – Nearly 85% of donors would like to contribute over $25 through text donations.


  • It’s simple – Most donors already know how to text, which make it fast and convenient for supporters. When asked to respond with reasons why donors gave with their mobile device a large number responded with words like “easy,” “convenient,” and “control.”


  • Reachability is increasing – Mobile number lifespans are lengthening. 75% of donors have had their mobile number for more than five years.


  • It’s a donor favorite – Donors reported they like to contribute online, with live events and mobile donations nearly tied as the second pick.


  • More popular than social media – When respondents were asked how they heard about text donation campaigns, the primary method was “TV or radio” at 67%, with social media being the second most common method, at nearly 28%.


  • Communicate more – Other than donation information, respondents were wanted to receive more information including 17.6% saying they would like to receive information about surveys, 32.8% said information about volunteering and 18.6% said program information.

PRIVI VS. Social Media – The Marketing Challenge in Numbers

What can Privi do for you that social media can’t? This is a pretty common question in the mobile industry and one that we answer quite frequently. Let’s take a look and see how Privi and social media stack up against each other.

Privi is a powerful marketing tactic that can be used to get your message to your audience’s most personal screen via SMS/MMS delivery. Better yet, with Privi your audience will actually SEE your message. On average, only 20% of those emails you sent to your database are being opened. With Facebook’s ever-changing algorithm, roughly 3% of your followers are getting your message and the life span of your tweet is sitting at 18 minutes. Studies show that the open rate of text messages is above 90%. That’s an incredible statistic and clearly shows the value of SMS.

When you look at engagement, the average cell phone user checks their phone 150 times a day! On the other hand, just over half of Facebook’s users login daily. Here’s an even bigger number: 174,000,000. That is how many Americans text daily compared to the 91 million Facebook users in the United States.

Privi’s full suite of services offer you 360 degrees of campaign management. We specialize in creating NEW and exciting monetary streams for you from your fan audience.
