Texting is the number one medium for developing deep, intentional relationships with teens. Why? They're always on their phones, and we don't see this trend faltering in the slightest. So, what's that saying? "If you can't beat them, join them." Well, welcome to the team, friend. Texting it is. Here are a few tips to get your student texting strategy started.
We won't pretend to know the answers to all the questions facing pastors and church leaders in the weeks leading up to Easter, but we'd love to help where we can. Our focus here is utilizing resources you already have with Clearstream: polls and keyword workflows. We've laid out exactly how you can use these, taking the guesswork out of the equation.
Here are a few helpful updates we've recently pushed - You can now create Keyword aliases when using a dedicated number, view context within Slack to see what message an incoming text is replying to, and your account switcher got a small make-over. Check out all the details below!
Happy New Year and welcome to the first product update of the 2022! There was a lot worth celebrating in 2021 and we're excited for what this new year will bring! To kick the year off we've created a custom link shortener, added new options for using Subscriber Data, and also made some big updates to our integration with Rock RMS!
Along with polls, you can now use subscriber data in your workflow texts ("Hi First Name"), customize the instructions when sending a menu in a keyword workflow, and if you use our CCB integration, you can now automatically add subscribers to a CCB group.
Have you ever wanted an easy way to gather feedback from your church? Polls just might be the answer! Now you can easily survey your members, let people submit a response, or share their feedback using Polls.
We've been busy updating several parts of our platform over the past several weeks (mostly boring, behind the scenes stuff). But today we launched a fun, new, not behind the scenes feature: Notes! And that's not all... keep your eyes peeled for an exciting, though likely unexpected, feature launching later this month! 👀
A2P 10DLC (application-to-person 10-digit-long-code) registration is mandatory if you use 10-digit local numbers for mass texting. You can use your same local number in your Clearstream account. You don't have to create a new number.
Since January, our team has made significant updates to the Messages page, where any mass or individual texts are scheduled and sent out from your account. Since small changes add up over time, we wanted to recap how this page has changed and review what all you can do! Check out the timeline of updates below.
