RoboCent now offers Peer-to-Peer (P2P) SMS messaging! Instead of relying on an Opt-In list of voters to contact with an automated text, we manually target voters in your district via SMS. RoboCent uses a real human to send messages to your list. We will work with your campaign to craft the optimal message to get the highest response rate from voters in your district.
The real difference in our manual SMS Connect vs an automated text campaign comes in the back and forth dialogue. When a voter texts you back to say thanks, our staff will manually and individually respond to that voter with a unique message. We also don’t have to have prior consent from the voter to text them, it’s just like having a volunteer at the campaign headquarters manually phone banking!
SMS Connect gets its strength from being able to maintain an ongoing conversation with constituents and voters. The power in this program lies with the ability to keep leads fresh by getting interaction throughout the year, not just during the Election. Additionally, this also starts a dialogue where the constituent is likely to respond and save the number of the text for a later time.
More and more these days constituents and voters have a distrust for politicians and their elected officials. They feel they only hear from them when it’s election time. We’ve developed a new program to maintain ongoing communications with voters at a time when they would appreciate hearing a nice message – their Birthday! Send a monthly message to everyone with a birthday or a daily message on their specific birthday.
Contacting voters on a Holiday is a great way to maintain Name ID through consistent, layered messaging. A text on a holiday while people are in a good mood will ensure your candidate’s name is remembered come Election Day.
Send an update to your constituents about what’s happening in session. Provide a link to a video of your client talking about what’s important to them and how they’re working to provide a better future for their constituents.
Reach out to current and prospective donors with a friendly text! Follow up on a pledge or after an event where you met new supporters. Integrate with a link that brings them directly to a mobile friendly donation page on your website. Using a supporter’s name, personalized messaging, and a human touch, SMS Connect can help maximize the return on donations.
Surveys and Polls
Send a link to a custom survey on your website! Ask about issues important to your constituents, their choice of candidate, or if they would like a YardSign. SMS Surveys have a higher response rate than your typical phone based IVR, allowing your campaign to collect more data and input.
Election Day + GOTV
The most important day of the year. The time when all you can do is hope your candidate’s name is remembered when voters walk into the voting booth. Why not jog their memory with a SMS before they head to the polls? This outreach, paired with the layered messaging sent throughout the year, is a guaranteed way to boost voter turnout, enthusiasm, and gather more votes for your candidate.
Being able to inform your constituents of up-to-date information regarding an impending storm is powerful. Not only is it an excuse to continue your direct outreach efforts, but you can provide important information about shelter locations, storm movements, and safety recommendations. Having the information written down that they can access at any time will be invaluable when power lines and cell towers are down.
Encourage voters in the district to give their opinion on unpopular legislation to their current representatives. We can even send a unique number that will track which contacts follow through and make the call, providing valuable information about effectiveness and volume.
Ask voters if there is anything your campaign can help with. You’ll be surprised with the number of people who want to report a street light out, a pot hole on their morning commute, or need help getting a call back from Veterans Affairs. All things your candidate could easily help with to gain a vote.
