The conference in San Antonio, Texas, included lectures, how-to sessions, research and interactive presentations geared toward charitable giving professionals.
Attendees at a professional ethics session used Guide by Cell’s text messaging platform to give their input on a variety of ethical scenarios. After being presented with a situation and possible responses, attendees of all ages used their mobile phones to text the corresponding number (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) to vote for their answer. The session moderator was able to instantly collect all responses through the Guide by Cell web-based platform and use the audience feedback to further the discussion.
"Our attendees loved the Guide by Cell SMS technology," said Barbara Yeager, Director of Operations at the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning. "Texting in their responses allowed people to feel engaged without having to openly express their opinions. The texting platform was easy to set up and well worth the use!"
Guide by Cell’s robust texting platform has been used for vote-by-text functionality, mobile fundraising and text donations, text message-based games and interactions, and mobile coupon programs at several cultural institutions and nonprofits worldwide.
