Case study 3: Fastnacht-association Guggenmusik "Hellsbells"

Guggenmusik HölläbölläLike every year, at November 11th, 11:11 o'clock the begin of carneval is celebrated.

Guggenmusik - an important part of the Swiss carneval -translates as Happy music and certainly seems to bringthe best out of both those who perform it and thosewho are entertained by it. The bands are generallyabout 40 strong and combine large percussion sectionsof bass drums and trolley mounted kit drums with evenlarger brass sections of trumpets, trombones,euphoniums and sousaphones.

The Fastnacht-Band Guggenmusik "Hellsbells" fromJeckenwil is an association with 155 members. 35 ofthem are active band members, 105 passive members(sponsors and favorers, etc.) and 15 are veterans.

To prepare the upcoming season, the Fastnacht-associationstarted its activities already in summer: rehearsalof new music pieces, patterns for the 2009 costumeswere created, the schedule for the gigs was planned- now the first fixed terms impend.

Fact: Communication by SMS is reliable and binding and suitable for information and coordination of groups.


SMSBLASTER.CH web editionAs main instrument of communication, the SMSBLASTER.COM webedition is used in combination with a Global Two-Way number (e.g. +447624000000).


The management of the Fastnacht-association sends all short messages with this number as originator.

The members send short messages to the Fastnacht-association management exclusively to the Global Two-Way number+447624000000.

All replies of the members are received in the Two-Way Inbox of the SMSBLASTER.COM web edition.

The Fastnacht-association maintains an address group for every job category in the address book of the SMSBLASTER.COM web edition: Management, Active Members, Passive Members, Veterans.
