Mass SMS Tool
Phone2Action is an advocacy tool that houses legislative advocates in a database and gives you the capability to reach out to your supporters via one-way SMS. Advocates can reach their lawmakers via email, Facebook, Twitter, and patch-thru phone calls. The platform also includes a suite of GOTV tools and a new emailer to email your supporters.
Problem it tries to solve:
How can I engage my advocates to take action on important legislative issues while making their experience as easy as possible?
The director of a ballot initiative wants to collect signatures online and via SMS. Supporters can join by signing the online Phone2Action landing page or text “XXX” to a 5 digit number and are connected via SMS to the petition/campaign link.
Phone2Action does not sync to VAN and is not a Field Organizing tool. As with other texting platforms, as your volume of texts increases, so does the cost. Since they do not have publicly available pricing materials, the price may be out of reach for some campaigns.
Does it sync to NGP VAN?
