At Telerivet, we always enjoy sharing our technology with new audiences. So Jesse (our CTO) and I were thrilled to participate in the Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action global learning course last week and share a tutorial video we created to show how MAMA programs can create their mobile messaging campaign with Telerivet. Our cloud-based platform makes it easy to set up and deploy a wide variety of mobile messaging programs — including maternal health campaigns, polling, community organizing, sending appointment reminders, and much more.
The video we presented last week focuses on the steps for creating a mobile messaging campaign within Telerivet. For maternal health campaigns, the easiest way is to use any spreadsheet program (like Excel) to quickly generate a schedule of messages to send according to each mother’s due date, then simply copy and paste those messages into Telerivet. To download an Excel template that you could adapt for your organization’s messaging campaign, click here.
View our tutorial video to see how it works:
Update 1/23/14: We just launched improved features for message scheduling, so the above method is no longer the easiest way to conduct maternal health campaigns. See blog post and updated tutorial video
We're rapidly improving and adding capabilities to Telerivet, and we’re always looking to our customers for suggestions on what we should build next — so let us know if you have ideas about new features that could help your organization.
Thanks again to the Mobile Alliance for Maternal Action for including us in their global learning course and we hope to work with the MAMA community to support maternal health through mobile messaging!
