We’re in the 21st century—the technology age in which everyone wants to edge up using the best available options.
One of the brilliant ways to make money these days is to help people promote their products and services. This explains why the bulk SMS reselling business will remain a lucrative one until God-knows-when.
If you are thinking of starting bulk SMS reselling, one of the best options you have to remain in business for life is to collaborate with religious organizations—especially churches. The reason is obvious—churches have the right population to keep your business running and fetch you huge profits for life.
Partnering with your church and churches in your neighbourhood will end up in a win-win situation: You make the church happy by helping it disseminate information timely to its members, and you make your pocket happy as well.
Churches are big customers for custom bulk SMS resellers because they have several hundreds to thousands of members. And they constantly send messages to these members, some churches weekly and some even send as daily devotionals to members—to uplift them spiritually, to communicate church events, to make important announcements, and to win souls. These days, most communication is done through text messaging due to its reliability and instant nature.
So, if you can land long-term bulk SMS deals with a number of churches, you’re in for steady income for as long as they remain with you. Well, the truth is, if you don’t grab this opportunity, someone else will.
Now, here are steps to follow if you want to land huge bulk SMS deals with churches.
1. Create a well-written proposal
You will need a proposal to discuss your bulk SMS reselling services and offers. In the proposal, request for a meeting with the people in charge. In other words, work your way to having a meeting with the church head or any of the major stakeholders.
2. Explain the benefit
Let them know that the church stands to stay in touch with its congregation in the most effective way, since almost everyone has a mobile phone. Tell them how important it is to send reminders for events to ensure a high turnout.
Furnish them with the features and benefits of opening an SMS account with you for a long-term partnership that will foster the growth of the church.
Also, highlight the importance of sending monthly inspirational messages to members of the church. And let the church know what it stands to gain by keeping close to the heart of its congregation via custom bulk SMS.
3. Offer a competitive price
Since you’re looking at a long-term deal, offering a mouth-watering price is very important. The church may have someone handling the bulk SMS already, so the most important factor that will get you any considerations is a lowered price. Don’t worry; you’ll reap the benefits of “shifting grounds” in the long term.
After all negotiations have been made, agree on a mode of payment and request to be paid monthly or weekly for your services in order to ease the stress involved in bank payments. Then, offer them a beautifully-designed contact form that can be used to obtain member’s mobile numbers – such small gestures can win so many hearts to give you a trial.
Well, if you can pull this deal through, you’ll soon start paying higher tithes yourself—trust me.
Bear in mind that you can replicate this process for many churches. Nothing stops you from serving as much as 10-20 churches. It’s all a matter of speaking to your friends and family members who attend various churches.
If you successfully partner with three or four huge congregations, you’ll earn several thousands on a monthly basis—just from bulk SMS reselling – only to churches.
