One area where you can show your love for those in your school association is during the examinations. Bulk SMS can be used for this.
Exam periods are daunting times, and you never can tell what a well thought out success wish can do for the students. With bulk SMS, you can get out success wishes before an examination to all members of the association. The first thing is to get a phone number database of all the students in your association, which isn’t a difficult thing to do.
HOW TO GET THE PHONE NUMBERS DATABASE
If it is a departmental association, phone numbers of the students can be gotten from the class representative of each class level. Also, during session payment of dues, a list can be provided where students can input their phone contact details. There you get your phone numbers database.
For faculty bodies, the list generated by the departmental associations can be used as a database for the faculty body. What you need do is just compile the lists from the various department and you are good to go. You can also go through the class representatives.
Cultural associations can simply request for the phone numbers of their members for bulk messages, which they will definitely oblige to. The same is also true for religious associations; the numbers database can be generated there from within.
The Student Union Government (SUG) can also get a phone number database for the students by liaising with the other associations mentioned above. They can also easily get these from appropriate school management, since the SUG is a recognized figure by the school management.
HOW TO SEND THE SUCCESS BULK SMS
Having gathered the phone numbers, the next thing is to register a free bulk SMS account with a quality bulk SMS service provider. Then, you can save the numbers in a phonebook inside your bulk SMS account. This will let you make use of them again in the future, as this is not the only thing you will be doing with bulk SMS within your association.
Then, few days to the commencement of the examinations, go to your bulk SMS account and compose an inspiring exam success wishes. Then, send this to all the contacts in the saved phonebook.
With bulk SMS, you can get yourself closer to your association members, and that success wish might just be what they need to excel in that examination. Try this.
