Tips for SMS Marketing for Schools Maximize Impact with Every Text Sent

Maximize the impact of your school's SMS communications with these four expert tips:

  • Keep Messages Clear and Concise

    Ensure that each message you send is straightforward and to the point. Parents and students receive numerous notifications daily, so your SMS needs to stand out by being easily digestible.

  • Segment Your Audience

    Tailor your communication by segmenting your audience into groups such as grade levels, extracurricular clubs, or parent committees. This ensures that recipients only receive relevant information, increasing engagement and reducing opt-outs.

  • Schedule Messages Strategically

    Time your messages for when they are most likely to be read. Avoid early mornings or late nights. For non-urgent messages, mid-afternoon after school hours usually works best, ensuring your message doesn't get lost during busy times.

  • Encourage Two-Way Communication

    Make it easy for parents and students to respond to your messages. Whether it's confirming attendance at an event or asking a question about a school notice, two-way communication fosters a stronger sense of community and engagement.
