Are you as excited about the Winter Olympics as I am? In the spirit of the games, I’m awarding medals to my top three favorite Signal Vine resources. I scored them out of ten points in three areas: actionability, applicability, and accessibility. My picks are all strong performers when it comes to sharing practical how-to steps, having relevant information for all kinds of texting programs, and being available at the right time and place.

Let’s see how they stack up!

Bronze Medal: Enterprise Texting Ebook

Actionable: 7/10 – The “Definitive Guide to Enterprise Text Messaging” ebook is meant to be more inspirational than actionable. While there is some practical advice in the ebook, the real value is that it helps you see how texting can transform your students and your institution.

Applicable: 7/10 – This ebook is highly relevant to you if you work in higher education. It helps if you use Signal Vine’s platform since it’s the only text messaging platform truly designed to be used across an entire institution. If you work in education in a different capacity, then you might find this resource to be interesting but not particularly applicable to your day-to-day work. 

Accessible: 10/10 – Available on our website to anyone who’s interested, this ebook is easy to access.

Grand Total: 24/30 


Silver Medal: Signal Vine Virtual Summit

Actionable: 10/10 – This two-day, biannual webinar series is chock-full of verified best practices for making the most of Signal Vine’s text messaging platform. Sessions cover a range of topics, from mastering the basics of the platform to creating powerful reports.

Applicable: 10/10 – With ten sessions to choose from, the Virtual Summit has something for everyone. Attendees can pick and choose which webinars they attend so that they get the most relevant content.

Accessible: 7/10 – You do need to be a Signal Vine customer to access all of the content, making it a less relevant resource for those who aren’t yet texting with us. If you are a customer, you can access the webinars during the live event or watch them later on-demand. The next Virtual Summit will be hosted in April 2018.

Grand Total: 27/30

Actionable: 10/10 – “Best Practices for Texting Students” is a collection of the best how-to texting advice we’ve gathered over the years. The ebook shares detailed, easy-to-follow steps you can take right now to build or improve your texting program. 

Applicable: 10/10 – It doesn’t matter if you’ve never texted students or if you’re the world’s greatest texter: you’ll learn something from this ebook. The tips and tricks are broad enough that you can apply them to any type of texting program.

Accessible: 10/10 – Though some of the tips work best when used with Signal Vine’s platform, you don’t need to be a customer to benefit. The ebook can be downloaded from our website or by clicking the button below.
