TextingForward has worked with sports organizations -big and small-to bring SMS solutions in very unique ways. Here are just a few of them:
- FIFA World Cup
- Man of the Match
- Bank of America Chicago Marathon
- ING New York Marathon
Race Split Notifications:
If you would like a full system to allow your audience to follow athletes as they compete, we can provide that for you. From the registration screens before the event all the way to sending the text message to friends and family that are following that athlete along the race- we do it all for you.
In addition, if you just need to connect to our gateway to send the messages out and for our technical team to interface with your timing/management company, we can do that as well. Please click here to contact us for more information and so we can discuss your specific race needs.
Voting/Polling During LIVE events:
If you are looking to incorporate a poll or would like the audience to vote on their favorite player of the game to interact with the audience in REAL time, we can help deploy this program.
Why Invest in SMS for your Race?
TextingForward can deliver real-time race splits of individual runners to friends and family via an opt-in process either on the web, mobile web, through kiosks at the expo or by texting from their mobile phone all the way through race day. Example of race splits could include: START, 10K, HALF, 30K & FINISH. In addition to race splits, a post-race summary message can be delivered to all text recipients.
