We're very excited, as today is the launch of our mobile campaign tool suite, the Artez Mobile Communicator. It's designed to solve all of the text-based email drawbacks on smartphones- the simple text display, confusing links and the impersonal look / feel of it all. As an impetus for the Artez Mobile Communicator, we've recognized mobile trending data:
• 83% of U.S. adults have cell phones or smartphones (Pew Research Center, December 2009).
• 22.4 million U.S. consumers accessed the Internet from their phones in 2009 (comScore, March 2009).
• 362 million touch-screen, mobile devices are expected in the market during 2010 (Gartner, March 2010).
What does this all mean?
You better figure out a way to communicate with donors the way they want to be connected with-on their smartphones!
The Artez Mobile Communicator is a unique solution that generates real desktop-looking emails delivered to any smartphone. The Artez Mobile Communicator allows non-profits to bridge the gap between dynamic content and effective mobile delivery. That's right! No more confusing text-based campaigns. The new solution allows for a higher donation-to-cause percentage and full campaign branding on any smartphone. Further, the Artez system provides the horsepower to accept donations online without texting or carrier fees. Donors receive their fancy mobile email, are compelled by your message and can click right through to the Artez donation platform where they can donate to your cause.
Let's take a closer look at donation processing through the Artez system.
There is an immediate availability of money, meaning the donation is processed and funds are transferred by the payment processor almost instantly to the non-profit's bank account. Donations are limited only at the donor's discretion-how much they would like to support your campaign. With the Artez System, carrier fees of up to 50% are eliminated, meaning more money for the cause. Standard credit card payment gateway charges and transaction fees apply, which amounts to less than 10% of the total donation. Receipts are generated instantly and sent via email right to the donors' smartphones. The Artez System was designed for PCI DSS compliance, so all transactions are safe and secure.
