We use Constant Contact for our church's bulk Email. I am the youth minister, and I have found it to be an invaluable resource. I have an idea for your consideration...
I was out of state the week before Christmas and we had snow back home. We needed to cancel a meeting, but I had no Internet access where I was. It was very cumbersome to get somebody on the phone and walk her through setting up a campaign, selecting the lists, and so forth.
How great it would have been if I could have simply sent an an SMS (text) message from my phone and had that initiate a campaign.
I'm thinking that there could be a default SMS template and an SMS list. Constant Contact would need to have a special number to TXT to (like Twitter does). When a message comes in, it automatically initiates a campaign with the content placed into the default SMS template.
I know it's not exactly what Constant Contact is about, but I think a good number of non-profits who use it would find such a system to be valuable.
