How best could my organisation use Handheld?

Handheld lends itself to many use cases across sectors. Our success stories range from housing associations and charities to non-profits and community groups. Here are just a few examples of how it can be used: 

Charities
Donation Channel: Boost donations by creating a giving campaign to tell your impact story. From your SMS to secure payment, it's a simple, quick new way for donors to give. 
Engage beneficiaries with digital resources and important information about your services. 

Tip: Create a giving campaign by using a 'Donate Now' Call-to-Action button. Safely distribute digital art packs, recipes, and other fun digital activities.  


Housing Associations
Engage residents who may be without a social media or email account.
Reach vulnerable members of your community, who may have no basic digital skills. Allow them to safely navigate the internet and engage with crucial official information, with no digital training at all.

Tip: Use for civic participation, welcome kits, bulletins, crucial messaging & support.


Community Groups
Bypass Social Media: address concerns about data privacy and keep your updates private and secure.
Streamline Communications Keep everything current and up to date by creating dynamic campaigns with static URLs, that can be easily adjusted at the click of a button.

  
Tip: Use CTA to drive membership sign-ups to your CRM form (speak to us about a Good CRM for the third sector)
