Winter Storm-Related Outage? Business Text to the Rescue!

A common scenario every winter: a sudden dump of snow makes roads impassable or dangerous. Or a sudden temperature drop during a rainstorm ices over the roads to your school or other class-based business. You need to get the word out FAST that one or several classes are canceled or delayed. But how?

There’s an easy way: ClassJuggler’s built-in texting tool! This highly customizable tool makes it easy to get timely SMS (text) messages to all or a subset of your customers. And you can filter yourclip_image001 text message recipient list by certain attributes so that it only goes to the right audience for your message.

For example, you can specify that your closure message be delivered only to:

  • Students or parents of a specific class – like, say, the one class that will be affected
  • Classes the meet on a certain day or date, particularly helpful when you know that all classes will be canceled because of the weather event
  • It’s important to pinpoint your audience not only because it makes your messages more likely to be appreciated but because the mobile device owners for whom that message is not important (such as those who don’t have classes the week of your cancellation) may get frustrated enough to block their phone from receiving messages from you.

How to filter your text message to a specific audience within ClassJuggler

For example, let’s say you want to target your text message to only parents whose children attend a certain class. Simply select the class you want to work with, then choose Send Class SMS Text from the Class menu, as shown below:
