The advert will this time be tested on terrestrial television.The fundraising team at Battersea will also be using AMA’s text short messaging service (SMS) for the first time. The campaign will encourage supporters to text in, expressing an interest in pledging support to the charity. They will in turn be contacted by an AMA operator to discuss the options for donation in further detail. Advertisementlast_img read more
