With one click, PreventionPays™ Text flows seamlessly between texting with one and texting with many.

Flow seamlessly between tailored group messaging and individualized conversational texting!

Tier 1, Enterprise Short Codes with Complimentary, In-App Message Tracking!

Live, one-on-one texting for live help (because your clients are texting more than they make voice calls and with GenY and Millennials, it's often to the exclusion of voice calls entirely)

Reminders/auto-responses to keywords (educational message tracks, timed, automated)

Appointment Reminders (future and missed with live two-way help for cancellations and rescheduling. Your clients want to text you. We say, let them!)

Triages (query clients with fully automated, text message surveys)

Group Messages (create ad-hoc groups based on preference, response to triage questions, information obtained during a live text conversation, or from client profile)

Ask about our Donation Tools - capture the mobile number and text your donors about all the great work you do.  Then, when you ask them to give, they have a better understanding of what you do and will likely be more generous with their pledge amounts. Text them a link to a mobile friendly donation page so that they can give from their smart phone. With this model, there's no donation amount caps and no royalties or processing fees. The entire amount goes directly to your organization. Simple. 

Branded services on short codes (839863, 898211, 20121, 61222, 85511, 38255) that are trusted resources among millions of end users! Get "text-enabled" and activate your service area on PreventionPays Text! 

All services are supported by Tier 1 short codes and a unique, fully-integrated message tracking system. Always know when your message is delivered or, if it's unable to be delivered, the system alerts you so that your team has complete confidence that every message is being securely recorded and stored on dedicated, co-located servers. Under each outgoing message you will find message tracking hard at work. 

When delivery is not possible we are also alerted. We receive a different code depending on whether the delivery attempt can be retried.  We also use automatic retry so you don’t have to keep retrying a message if you get an“unable to deliver” alert.  The system will resend for you at regular intervals (ever 5 minutes) until delivery is confirmed!  Simple.

- Evidence-Based "Narrowcast" Awareness Tools and Strategies -

We talk to our clients everyday about outreach. The most important step in effective engagement through text is the call to action.  So, what is a call to action?  The call to action tells your priority group what they need to text to subscribe to text alerts, or opt in for live support. When you publicize an 800 number or create a hyperlink to your website, you're directing your end user to the exact location where they can get help or learn about the services your agency provides. Effective, engaging text message programs begin with a compelling call to action:  For up to the minute storm alerts, text WEATHER to 898211**

We help your team evaluate your priority group and content so that the call to action makes a deep impact and resonates with the individual.  Text is by nature an individual medium. We use it every day to connect with our friends and family. Your priority group must be able to trust their encounters with your agency will be meaningful and personal. Narrowcasting is the core element of our work in social marketing.  We will help ensure you reach your target groups with succinct and compelling calls to action that will grow your sms listserv and maximize the value of your text message program. EMS Narrowcast work has helped thousands of nonprofits and their partners reach their communication goals and ensure their investment in texting has high penetration with their priority populations.

With the EMS team, you'll have all the ingredients to build best practice text programs that produce high use rates with high satisfaction indices. You'll reach the individuals you want to reach with the precise content they request at opt in. Clients that have followed these strategies have consistently leveraged their evaluation data into grant dollars.  EMS services help non-profits achieve sustainability through data-driven solutions bolstered by best practice outreach.

Narrowcast programs that display print materials and disseminate take-home cards have become useful mechanisms for bridge-building among community services and the priority populations they serve. Studies on school-based awareness projects [developed by EMS] were found to be effective at increasing help-seeking and improving access to community resources with students at risk for chemical dependency, unintended pregnancy, depression, date violence/assault, self-harm and many others.

Compelling messages.  Striking images.
