NOTE: Text-to-give is NOT the traditional form of text-to-donate, where a supporter can text a specific number to have a contribution billed to their carrier.
ConnectionPoint does not support that type of text-to-donate feature. Our Text-to-give (TTG) feature allows a person to text a number and receive a link to your campaign in response.
Use-case example #
I’m a potential supporter of an art festival (Hiya!). There is a large screen scrolling through different advertisements from entrepreneurs, and I see a favourite artist of mine has a new campaign running. The ad says, “Text this number to receive campaign details.” I text the number, and immediately I receive a link. I click on the link, being wowed by the artist’s work, and contribute!
Turning on Text-to-give #
STEP 1: Click ‘Edit’ in the sidebar menu of your campaign.
STEP 2: Click ‘Marketing’ in the new sidebar menu.
STEP 3: Click ‘Yes’ under ‘Text-to-give,’ then insert a code into the box to provide to potential supporters (something relevant and easy to remember).
If the platform informs you that your code is unavailable, you’ll have to add another one.
STEP 4: Click ‘Apply’
You will then see the numbers your supporters can message to receive their campaign link.
STEP 5: SAVE!
Can’t forget that guy!
