Quick Start: New Attender Follow-Up

Use our pre-written Template to help move guests from first time visitors to engaged members.

Updated over a week ago

Our pre-written text Templates make things easier than ever. It only takes a few minutes to set up your New Attender Follow Up Series so you can ensure no one falls through the cracks!

Our New Attender Follow-Up Series is a series of 6 customizable text messages that will be automatically sent out over the course of 17 days. Each message is set up to generate engagement, gather prayer requests, share valuable links and information, and so much more! All a guest has to do is opt into the series by texting in the appropriate keyword to your Gloo phone number.

Watch the video below for a walkthrough on how to set it up, or continue below for the full step-by step guide!

Setting up your New Attender Follow-Up Series

  1. Navigate to the Discover menu and find the “New Attender Follow-Up Series” template by either scrolling through, or typing it into the search box on the top left.

  2. Click on the template and read the instructions under “Let’s set up the Series!"

  3. Make any changes you want to the Series and customize the messages to your church.

Don't Forget: Make sure to replace the [bracketed] content with your information! Any text in {{curly brackets}}, however, is smart text that the system will automatically fill in for you.

4. Click Save to make your Series active!

Important: Once the Series is saved, you can find it active in your Series tab under the Messaging menu. This is where to navigate in order to make any additional updates.

How to get your guests to text in

  1. Create an SMS QR code and place it on a slide or in the bulletin for first time guests to scan.

  2. Verbally announce during service for your guests to "Text GUEST to [YOUR NUMBER]."

  3. Print your call-to-action on posters and/or bulletins that are placed around your church.

Note: You can also manually add people to your Series without them texting in the keyword. To do this, just click the 3 dot drop down menu by your Subscribers and select Add People To This Series.
