TEXT MESSAGING FOR  
POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS

It’s without question, text messaging has become a powerful tool for political campaigns. In 2008, candidate Barack Obama announced his VP pick of Joe Biden to nearly 3 million Americans via text messaging and Donald Trump’s use of mobile messaging updates show text messaging is a cost-effective efficient means of communication for any public figure.  However, you don’t have to be running for president to reap the benefits of text messaging for your political campaign.


Some ideas that could help your election victory:

  • Voting Day Reminders
  • Event Alerts
  • Important Campaign Announcements
  • Volunteer communication
  • Stay ahead of the media, send a text to address emerging issues directly
  • Gain more support from youth voters


It’s easy to incorporate text messaging into your campaign utilizing the same ideas you’ve used for years. Simply put “Text Smith to 40691 for a chance to win dinner with Smith!” on any or all of the following:


  • Stickers
  • Yard Signs
  • Flyers
  • Buttons
  • And more
