I have tried numerous solutions for my website needs and stumbled upon Online Church Solutions a few months ago. After talking with Mark, I felt the inexpensive commitment was worth trying yet another solution. When I did, I was amazed. I was able to completely rebuild our site (44 pages) in a matter of hours. After discussing with Mark the only small drawback I ran into, he redesigned the feature going far beyond what I had talked to him about.
Have you wanted to easily direct your congregation to more information about the upcoming Picnic or how to be baptized at the next Baptism Service? Then our Keyword Texting is the tool for you. For instance, when people text the word BAPTISM to your phone number, our system responds back with an auto-reply that you create. This could be a date, time, location or even a link for them to view even more specific information. If they texted their name with the keyword, it could be used to register their name and cell number for baptism. Use it similarly for PRAYER, WEATHER, or many other ways.
For those texting within the United States, this robust tool with the functionality detailed below is already included in your Annual Online Church Solutions Price. Account required with either Twilio or Plivo using their pay-as-you-go rates (each company's prices are subject to change). Either work with our service, we do not upcharge your rates (you pay directly to Twilio or Plivo), and there are no minimums.
We also offer Group Texting and Voice Broadcasting.
