MessageBee for Consortia: Communicate Better

Library consortia can face challenges in managing communication across multiple libraries while maintaining individuality and relevance for their patrons. MessageBee from Unique Library was designed to address these challenges and provide an all-in-one patron communication solution for library consortiums. As a part of a consortium, libraries can reap all the benefits that make MessageBee the best tool on the market for engaging patrons.

1. Custom Reporting, Branding, and Tracking

MessageBee allows library consortia to customize reporting, branding, and tracking down to the single-library level. This level of customization enables each library to tailor their communication efforts to their specific needs and preferences. Whether it’s tracking the performance of marketing campaigns or creating branded notifications, MessageBee empowers libraries to maintain control over their communication strategies.

2. Access to Big-Library Tools for Local Libraries

With MessageBee, each library within the consortium gains access to big-library tools like marketing emails and slick-looking transactional notifications – all tailored for the local library. MessageBee also has SMS notifications built to 10-DLC specifications, designed for 2025 and beyond. This means that even smaller community libraries can leverage sophisticated communication strategies typically associated with larger libraries, enhancing their outreach efforts and engaging patrons more effectively.

With phone, SMS, and both marketing and transactional emails all part of the MessageBee package, libraries can send any kind of communication they want, with the design and feel they need.

3. Control Over Relevance and Clutter

One of the key features of MessageBee is that each library can control its own use, sending emails that are relevant for their patrons without cluttering their inbox with irrelevant information. This level of control ensures that patrons receive communications that are tailored to their interests and needs, leading to higher engagement and satisfaction.

4. Design Control for each library’s identity

MessageBee allows each community library to maintain its individual identity by controlling design elements such as logo, color scheme, and social media accounts. This means that libraries within the consortium don’t have to conform to a uniform look and feel – they can showcase their unique brand identity while still benefiting from the collective resources of the consortium.

MessageBee Case Study

Before Unique, Arlington Public Library was sending bland notices, and they had no visibility into whether they were even being delivered to their patrons. 

Now, they’re sending great emails, and the library knows exactly who is getting them.
