Get your listeners involved
Radio stations are continually using technology as a means to connect with their listeners and make people’s lives easier. Pangolin’s cutting edge text message software allows you to send periodic text blasts letting your listeners know about upcoming events, weather, traffic, and more right from their cell phone. With IMU listeners can text in their song requests and you can also run SMS voting, and Text to Win contests where listeners can text in their answers, and be entered for a chance to win.
How it works
As listeners tune into your radio broadcast, you can send out a message over the airways asking the audience to text a keyword to an associated number. For example:
“Text (RADIO) to 407-299-2088, for your chance to win a free DVD”
“Text your votes in now to 407-299-2088, and let us know which song you want to hear”
“Text (WEATHER) to 407-299-2088, and receive a free weather update from PL RADIO”
As people text in on various subjects, their cell phone number is automatically stored in a database for you. Using our BULK SMS feature, you can send out a mass text message to those people who have opted-in (subscribed), with different promotions, updates, broadcasts or sales.
Allow users to text in song requests, Run text message traffic and weather updates, Send out text message advertisements for sponsors and affiliates.
Note that there are rules and regulations that affect how BULK SMS can be used in certain jurisdictions and geographic territories. Some of these are discussed in the RULES AND REGULATIONS section of our web site. It is a condition of the license agreement of IMU software that you be familiar with, and abide by these rules and regulations in your area.
