Frequently Asked Questions

How do you count members? And can I start small and upgrade later?

Each unique person (email + mobile phone) in the system counts as ONE member. That person can join an unlimited number of groups…and they still count as just ONE member. Because we only ever charge you for unique contacts you *actually* have in Flocknote, everyone starts out on our FREE plan (up to 40 members) and then simply upgrades from there as more of their members join (or are imported by you).

What payment methods do you accept? And can I pay yearly?

We take credit/debit card or check (if you want to pay by check, simply sign up, then contact help@flocknote.com and let us know). And YES, you can pay yearly. In fact, you can pre-pay for whatever length of time you like. And when you do so, you get a FREE 5% BONUS CREDIT toward your account. Free money! If you need assistance with that, just email help@flocknote.com.

How do I justify the cost of Flocknote to my boss?

If Flocknote saves you even one paper mail-out PER YEAR, it pays for itself for the entire YEAR with unlimited emails and text messages for every one of your ministries/groups. You will empower every ministry leader to do what they do better, reaching all your members more effectively than ever, all for less than a single cell phone bill. Even better, it will DOUBLE (or maybe quadruple) attendance to your events (which means 2x or 4x in the collection plate, too). For more on the tremendous value of Flocknote, click here.

How do I get my boss and other leaders to adopt Flocknote?

We made this really easy for you. Just go to our Features page and watch the video together as a team/staff. Then discuss. Works great!

Can Flocknote integrate with our website?

Yep. We have embed forms you can stick right on your website so all your website visitors have a chance to sign up for any or all of your communications. You can also have any of your Flocknote communications automatically display on your website. Neat, huh!? Even better, if you use eCatholic or Sheenomo for your website, Flocknote is already integrated with them to do all this for you with just a few clicks.

Can people reply to emails and text messages? Where do replies go?

Yes. We capture all replies for you — all in one place. So rather than a group text message (or email) resulting in a barrage of reply-alls to everyone (which just annoys everyone on the list), all the replies go back to one place on Flocknote for admins to read them. You can also have a secure group conversations if you’d like, all in just one click and without members even having to log in.

Does Flocknote work with our member database (ParishSoft, PDS, etc.)?

Yes. Any contact info you already have in an existing database (or anywhere) can be imported straight into Flocknote (let us know if you need any help with this). Additionally, at any time, you can export all your contact info you have captured in Flocknote. That way you can do what you like with it (like update your own database, store it, open it in excel, etc). Most of our customers find that Flocknote ends up being their most up-to-date and important database of member info.

Do I have to load any software?

Nope. Flock note is all web-based. That means no hassle of downloading, installing or updating software. You’re always running the latest version and you can securely access it from any internet connection in the world and from any device (desktop, tablet, mobile phone, etc.).

Does each admin get their own account to log in with?

Yes. Each person has their own secure login. And you can set each person’s admin permissions individually however you like.

How do our members sign up (and what is “Text-to-join”)?

– There are 4 main ways people can connect with you on Flocknote:

  1. They can Text-to-join using our short-code phone number (i.e. “Text [KEYWORD] to 84576”). You can choose your first keyword for free (and can purchase more for only $4/month). All in a matter of minutes — right from their mobile phone while sitting in front of you — it captures their name, mobile phone number, and email address, AND then it let’s them pick whatever groups (ministries, lists, etc. you create) they want to get info from. It’s really, really cool. Click here for a short video demo.
  2. They can do the same thing through your own Flocknote link you share (ex: flocknote.com/yourchurch).
  3. You can embed the signup form on your website.
  4. For any contacts you already have, you can simply import them into Flocknote, put them on whatever groups they need to be on and start texting and emailing your members. So technically your members don’t even *have* to directly sign up in order to benefit from Flocknote.

We have a Facebook page, why do we need Flocknote?

Flocknote is totally different from Facebook. Facebook can be helpful for social networking, but it’s not great at directly reaching your members (an essential function for any healthy community). When it comes to directly reaching your members (regularly or at a moment’s notice), emailing and text messaging (Flocknote’s specialty) is amazingly and drastically more effective than Facebook (or anything else). Just check these stats.

How is Flocknote different from an email marketing tool (Constant Contact, etc.)?

Flocknote is made for ministry, not marketing! First it’s much simpler and quicker to use than other tools (so it’s easy for your entire staff and team to use it, too!). Second, it includes both email AND text messaging (which is super powerful). Third, Flocknote has a host of additional benefits, such as a simple interface, text-to-join for easy registration, direct replies, the ability to capture all your members’ replies in one place, polls, RSVPs, and more — while still tracking who is opening your email, addresses that bounce, etc.

Does Flocknote have a mobile app?

– First, Flocknote is totally mobile (accessible from any mobile device). Second, it’s technically an app…but it’s a web app, which means you (or your members) don’t have to go through the hassle of downloading any apps from an app store, etc. (which typically only your already heavily engaged members will do anyway). It just works! Basically, Flocknote does most all of what a church or ministry needs an app to do, but it’s less hassle and easier to use for everyone (which means it reaches more members while being even more effective).
– That said, we do have plans for various mobile apps that will enhance the Flocknote experience (if somebody prefers to use them that way). So stay tuned for that and a lot of other exciting stuff we have coming down the pipe.

What if my question isn’t answered here?
