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 RoboCent’s Political Text Message Marketing 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.

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.

What Our Clients Say.
Very helpful when it comes to targeting specific voters
RoboCent is very helpful when it comes to targeting specific voters and getting desired outcomes. Appalachian PAC focuses on local elections in Watauga County, NC, and we need to target specific demographics in our elections to achieve maximum turnout. RoboCent was the perfect platform to make that happen. -Appalachian PAC
RoboCent was quick, easy, and incredibly affordable
We have never used robocalling before, however RoboCent was quick, easy, and incredibly affordable for our municipal elections. The support is friendly, clear, and concise, and we will definitely be using them again in the future. -Ansonia Democratic Town Committee
RoboCent helped me text over 15,000 voters
RoboCent helped me text over 15,000 voters, which was significant enough to help my campaign end with over 33,000 votes in a district that was going to be tough for me. They helped so much! -Jae Moyer for Johnson County Community College Board of Trustees
Most sophisticated software in the industry
Very reliable company that has the most sophisticated software in the industry. Their platform is cost effective while delivering better results than that of the overpriced and less reliable services out there. Will definitely continue using this highly recommended service. Reliability and innovation for less than you'd expect. For pennies on the dollar, this company is worth every cent spent. -David Gordon for Oneida County Clerk
