03 May Choosing the Right Text-Giving Solution for Your Nonprofit
It’s no secret—if you truly want to improve donation numbers for your nonprofit, offering text giving to your supporters is a must. Email links, online portals, and cash/check avenues are also essential giving options, but the bottom line is that more and more people are preferring to use texting for most of their routine tasks. It’s the fastest, simplest, most frictionless method available.
So how should you choose a text-giving tool? Here are some considerations.
Text-giving tool costs vary. Make sure that you compare pricing across your top options. While that doesn’t mean you should always go with the cheapest one, you don’t want to pay for a more expensive solution if you can find a cost-effective tool that still has all the features you want.
Define your must-have, nice-to-have, and don’t-need features. Making a list will help you compare across solutions so that you can choose the right option for you. For example, if you only need a text-to-give solution, then avoid choosing software that has a bunch of extra bells and whistles you’ll never use.
Be wary of any solution that doesn’t allow for a demo. A text-giving solution can be a bit of an investment, and you want to know it will live up to its promises. When you schedule a demo, make sure that you let as many people test drive it as possible. Getting feedback from more people will help you notice pros and cons that you maybe wouldn’t have noticed on your own.
