Political Text Message MarketingSMS Marketing is the Best and Most Successful Way to Engage With Voters.
Text Messaging is the BEST way to Engage with Voters. Period.
Live, peer-to-peer text messaging. RoboCent employs US-based agents that will send each individual message through our system. This is what makes SMS Connect by RoboCent so powerful, the ability to contact cell phones without worrying about TCPA, FCC, or Opt-In list requirements. Since there is a live human sending the messages, there are no sending restrictions. It’s no different than having a volunteer phone banking at the campaign headquarters.

Are you Ready to get started with SMS Connect?
Connect with your constituents on a personal level.
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.
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.
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.
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. You can provide valuable information about shelter locations, storm movements, and safety recommendations while maintaining your relationship with constituents. 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.

A campaign I worked for had a much easier time using Robocent than other RoboCell services. Great, warm-blooded human customer service. We made sure phone numbers we gave them were dialed and were happy with the voicemail quality.
