Bands of America* set an aggressive (& necessary) goal to raise $250,000 in a 2 month timeframe. On December 11, 2008, Music for All kicked off its first virtual fundraising campaign. Given the organization’s roots in marching band and the more than 1.25 million students that it has served under its Bands of America brand, the BOA Alumni Campaign was born. In 81 days alumni, parents, grandparents, educators and fans from across the country banded together and donated over $252,000 to support a not-for-profit that had provided them positively life changing experiences.
Ever been to a conference and found yourself constantly checking the agenda or finding out a little late that a change had been made?
Between October 29 – November 1, 2008 we helped the DOCTRAIN East Conference with their mobile communications. We were part of the event’s daily communication strategy as well as providing a method for the conference to communicate last minute updates and changes to attendees.
Attendees received approximately 5 text messages a day reminding them of sessions, lunches and special events. At the end of the conference 7 subscribers were randomly chosen via our system to receive door prizes from conference sponsors.
When attendees were asked about the text message program comments ranged from, “really smart and useful” to “way cool” and “another reason I look forward to attending DocTrain events, you guys always are up-to-date with the latest technologies.”
We look forward to continuing our relationship with DOCTRAIN and providing them the same high level of service for each of their events.
DOCTRAIN East is an annual Conference and the theme this year was Producing Quality Content. There were 275 attendees and presentations were given by many leaders in the Content Generation, and Document Management/Preparation software Industries.

This past Saturday the inaugural Indianapolis Monumental Marathon took place in downtown Indianapolis. You couldn’t have asked for a better day for an event. The weather was incredible-not too cold and not too hot. We’ve had the opportunity to provide text results for a number of Ken Long and Associates events and love the response that they get. For this event, there were nearly 3000 participants and over 50% of the total opted to get their results via a text message.
Last weekend we provided text messaging services to Ken Long & Associates and through them the Hoosiers Outrun Cancer race in Bloomington, Indiana. This was a great opportunity for us to demonstrate our event texting services. For this particular type of event we deliver the race results via text message. The event participants text in a 3 letter code and their bib number to get the results, in this case HOC10000 would have been bib number 10000. more…
On October 7, 2008 we had the opportunity to attend a sales rally hosted by RE/MAX Realtors. The event was held in the newly minted Lucas Oil Stadium here in Indianapolis, IN. This was my first time in the new stadium and I must say that it is an incredibly impressive facility. If you get the chance I would highly recommend attending an event there.
