Centre Director thanking her for her inquiry and letting her know the next steps. She feels connected to this centre already.

Frequently Asked Questions
How can Airchild's SMS Marketing help our childcare business?
75% of millennials prefer texting to talking. With Airchild, you can engage parents more effectively with SMS marketing features already built into your core workflows. In addition to automatic SMS notifications for bookings and waitlist confirmations, payment links for a one-time transaction, review requests, and bulk messaging can also be done. Our SMS platform also offers two-way conversations with AI and automation so that you can maintain a consistent communication experience 24/7.
What can we do if a parent chooses not to receive SMS?
A Do Not Disturb (DND) option can be set for a contact within the Airchild CRM. If the DND option is enabled, the contact, or parent, will not receive messages from any channel. The DND option can be enabled for emails, SMS, calls, GMB, and Facebook Messenger.
Can we create new SMS templates?
Definitely! It takes less than 1 minute to create a new SMS template with personalised tokens. You can learn how to create SMS templates in our certification courses. There are also pre-built templates available that can be used immediately in Airchild. During onboarding, some of these pre-built templates may need to be reviewed as they contain centre-specific information. We will update these for you once you provide us with the information.
I want to use the parent's first name in all outgoing SMS, is that possible?
Yes! In Airchild, personalisation is at its heart. With a drop-down menu in the editor, you can dynamically insert any field from the system into your SMS, such as the first name. Once the message is sent, the variable or token will be replaced by the parent's first name. The test message feature allows you to see how this will look on your mobile before sending. Editing existing templates is just as easy.
Is there a cost when we send out the SMS to parents?
Airchild uses Twilio to deliver calls & SMS services. Twilio charges AUD 0.071 to send texts and AUD 0.011 to receive texts, so AUD 0.71 is charged for every hundred texts. The pricing information can also be found here - https://www.twilio.com/sms/pricing/au
How often should we send out SMS messages?
There's no definite answer, but one practice is to strike a balance between letting parents know you're thinking of them vs. bothering them with low value texts. Airchild uses SMS to deliver important updates when parents need to be kept up to date on actions like tour bookings, tour feedback, and waitlist reminders.
