OMG, LOL, IMHO… the telecommunications industry is always good for a load of abbreviations. FYI, when it comes to text messaging, there are two that get discussed a lot: SMS and MMS.

When you’re managing a group of 10+ people, being able to get out a quick text message to everyone at the same time is very important. The phrase “everyone on the same page” should come to mind. A text message is the most time-precise, most quickly read communication medium available. Period.

It’s time to get deep. Look, all of the regular happenings at the church can be fine. A smooth-running Sunday service? Yes please. A lively Wednesday night youth group with fun and whacky activities that still drives home a message? It’s what every youth leader hopes for every week. Lovely weather at the Fall Festival with families coming together and children playing? These traditions are part of the community that is a church.

In a church, internal communications obviously means the pastors and staff, but it can also mean the senior leaders, small group leader, Sunday school teachers, ushers, and volunteers. With good communications, a pastor’s Saturday night can be just a little more restful. With good communications, leaders are able to make sure that the service comes together. Ok, how?

At the heart of a regularly-scheduled service is engagement with your congregation. Text messaging can be a good fit for increasing engagement with a device that’s right in your guests’ pockets.
A church congregation is a valuable community that anyone can take part in. In order for any community to commune, you need good communications.
These days, the fastest and most reliable form of communications is SMS (text) messaging. For a decade, we at txtsignal have proudly served churches and youth groups with quality, easy-to-use communication tools and super fast messaging.
Holidays and special events can be an easy win for a quick promotion. Everybody likes to celebrate, from major holidays to quirky, industry-specific celebrations.
As a small business, you can use holidays to your advantage by tying in promotions or incentives. To help you plan ahead, we’ve created a list of holidays by month for you to take advantage of.
Some businesses are seasonal.
That’s a fact of life, business owners know that going in, and the common thinking says that owners just have to wait.
When the money stops flowing, it’s easy to feel powerless, like you’re subject to the cyclical nature of seasonality, and all you can do is wait it out and tighten your belt until it’s your time again.
Luckily, that does not have to be the case!
