Instant Results for Your Campaign

Why wait to reach people with traditional campaign strategies when you can streamline communication with text? As Fox News' article, More Politicians Turn to Text Messaging Campaigns, explains
From a campaign's perspective, texts are great, because there's a really high open rate for those," said Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Robin Carnahan, who is trying to collect as many cell phone numbers as possible for a text-message database. "They pop up on your phone, so it's really easy to communicate with people quickly and know that they're seeing that piece of information." 
It’s easy for your supporters to opt-in to receive text messages. All they have to do is text “JOIN” to your SendTree phone number. Or you can take a more pro-active route and collect cell phone numbers at your next public event. Plus, you can sync up your SendTree account with your social media pages so that all messages automatically post to your Facebook and Twitter.
