Recorded webinars

On average, people receive more than 100 emails a day and only open 18% of them. Conversely, the open rate for text messages hovers around 99%––what’s more, most people open a text message within 15 minutes of receiving it!

The bottom line: texting should definitely be part of your supporter outreach.
