Texts for Education: Manage Educational Operations Better and Faster (with Templates)
Every educational institution needs a dependable communication channel to perform its operations smoothly, whether it is a school, college, or university. Often institutions have to connect with students at scale faster, and for this, they cannot count on call interactions every time. This is where you can count on Salesforce texts for education. Texts can help to accelerate interactions, no matter whether you want to connect regarding admission, documentation, onboarding, or any other purpose. There are various use-cases where institutions can communicate back and forth to accelerate educational workflows and improve the experiences of students and parents. One of the most vital use-cases is admissions and enrollments.
Texts for Education Use Cases
Connect with Website Visitors to Provide Assistance Using Texts for Education
One way to use texts is you can follow up with website visitors. If any visitor visits your website and quits on any specific page, you can follow up and ask about their concern.
On the contrary, you can market a keyword on your website and ask prospective students to text the desired keyword on a specific number for any assistance. This way, you can provide an easy way to reach your institution.
Sample Text 1
We noticed that you were exploring various courses on our website. For any assistance, text HELP at 45456.
In case of any visitor texts HELP, you can trigger another text using automated texting to take communication forward.
Sample Text 2

Send Fee Reminders and URLs
Due to busy schedules, it is difficult for students to keep track of fee due dates. Thus, educational institutions can send fee reminders and URLs to attract fees timely and make it easier for students to pay the fees.
Sample Text 11

Notify Students about Attendance
Out of several ways to use texts for education, one way is to keep students posted about their attendance. In many universities, a fixed percentage of attendance is required to be eligible for exams. Thus, by keeping students posted about their attendance, they can help students to meet the attendance criteria.
Sample Text 12
Your attendance for February month is 20 days with 0 leaves.

Promote Events at Scale
Another way to use SMS for education is for promotions. Events, fests, and seminars are usual activities in universities. So nothing can be powerful as promoting upcoming events, seminars, etc., right on their hand-held devices.
So, again mass texting can help educational institutions to promote events faster at scale. You can send the date and time of events and ask for registrations to confirm headcounts.
Sample Text 13
QPR College of Management is conducting a seminar on the career scope of new technologies for B.tect and M.tect students on 15-05-21 in the community hall from 2 pm onwards. Register here qprcollegeofmgt.edu/seminar.
Run Surveys and collect Student Opinions with Texts for Education
It is important to know what students really feel about the institution to find room for improvement. As it is not feasible to reach out to each student personally and collect opinions, you can count on text Surveys to capture data at scale. You can create Surveys on your own to capture data and gauge students’ opinions on a specific topic.
Sample Text 14
QPR College of Management is planning to organize a trip to Paris.
Text YES to 45456 to submit your interest.
