Whichever association you are privileged to be an executive, you must avoid the temptation of only making contact with your association members only when you need money for the association’s purse. This doesn’t build trust and do not make the relationship between EXCOs and other members strong.
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. Faculty associations, the Student Union Government(SUG) and other associations can then get these numbers through the same means.
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.
