What Is Peer-to-Peer Texting?
Our peer-to-peer (P2P) texting platform enables agents to initiate a conversation with potential voters or supporters. You simply upload a contact list and assign a list of contacts to each agent–they then reach out and engage them in one-to-one conversations.
P2P texting helps campaigns drive event attendance, sign up volunteers, and increase voter turnout.
Engage potential donors in conversation and build a relationship before making your ask—no need to make phone calls or send emails.
P2P texting helps nonprofits thank donors, fundraise, obtain feedback, and talk about the organization’s impact.
