Patron Technology Introduces New PatronMail Text Sign-Up Add On Service

New York, NY — As part of its mission to provide cutting-edge technology solutions for arts organizations, Patron Technology today announced the release of an upgrade of its PatronMail e-mail marketing system, offering a text messaging list-building feature.

PatronMail clients can now have their patrons use their cell phones to join their e-mail lists, before a performance, in the lobby of their venue, or at any other time. Patrons simply send a text message (SMS), and their e-mail address is added instantly to the client’s PatronMail account. The patrons receive an instant text confirmation and an e-mail confirmation in their e-mail inbox, which can be customized and include a discount or other incentive.

According to International Association for the Wireless Telecommunications Industry, nearly 50 billion text messages are sent each month; this volume indicates that text-messaging is part of the daily routine of millions of cell-phone users. PatronMail Text Sign-up enables arts organizations to tap into this industry and use the convenience of text-messaging to help build their e-mail lists.
