The USIndoor Sports Association (USISA) is thrilled to announce the successful implementation of SMS marketing strategies.
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 16, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — The 23rd Annual Conference, held from May 17th – May 19th, brought together sports industry professionals, enthusiasts, stakeholders executives, owners, managers, exhibitors, and attendees from across the country. USISA aimed to maximize attendee engagement and ensure a memorable experience for all participants.
To achieve this, US International Studies Association collaborated with leading SMS marketing provider, CloudContactAI to design and execute an innovative mobile marketing campaign. The USISA Annual Conference‘s utilization of CloudContactAI’s SMS Platform was a smashing success. The USISA did a great job of keeping everyone informed at every stage of the conference, from the initial reminders through the daily lessons and sessions to the social events and the final thank you letter. By harnessing the ubiquity of SMS, USISA delivered timely and personalized messages directly to attendees’ mobile devices, enabling real-time communication and fostering a sense of community throughout the event. USISA used a wide variety of keywords to target its campaigns to different groups within the convention’s audience, such as executives, managers, vendors, and ordinary attendees. These keywords were made active when participants texted their unique keyword to a specially selected phone number by CloudContactAI. In response to receiving the keywords, the recipient’s phone number is added to a special contact list and they begin receiving reminders, invites, etc. by text message. During the course of the conference, the USIndoor Sports Association used campaign scheduling, which eliminated the need for USISA staff members to manually send thousands of SMS or emails. Text message campaigns that were pre-scheduled were curated with specific templates and customised for each receiver.
UsIndoor Sports Association Membership Director Chuck Stollery quoted- “They were really impressed with the results of using CloudContactAI for our 23rd Annual Conference. They were able to communicate effectively with attendees throughout the entire conference, and they were able to stay-up-to-date on the latest conference information in real time. They received positive feedback from attendees about the use of CCAI, and plan to use it again for future events.”
