CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., March 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Text Request, a North American business texting service, this week announced its peer to peer (P2P) non-partisan texting platform to reach targeted groups of supporters in political and activist campaigns.
As business and economic responses to COVID-19 fluctuate, local and national political campaigns face increased challenges in reaching supporters and potential voters. Once reliant on face-to-face campaign strategies, campaign consultants are turning to texting for outreach.
While many P2P texting platforms operate along party lines, Text Request offers a non-partisan texting platform.
"As opportunities for face-to-face engagement dwindle, our P2P tool is more relevant than ever," says Brian Elrod, Co-founder and CEO of Text Request. "Compared with lower engagement from emails and phone calls, 99% of all texts are read."
Text Request leaders confirm the company's P2P tools are compliant with regulations including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), FCC, and CTIA. The platform, with straightforward uploading and texting, guides users through importing contacts, setting up messaging, and sending messages.
Texts are sent with local area code phone numbers on an individual basis, not an automated mass message, which remains in compliance with TCPA. Text Request's deep integration with all major U.S. carriers gives campaigns delivery statistics on a recipient-by-recipient basis. Campaign consultants and managers can easily manage team dashboards and tiered permission levels for overseeing volunteers.
"Text Request is easy to use and gives campaigns one central location to manage messaging," says Elrod. "Our platform has powerful, real-time analytics and reporting tools. We have the most cost-effective pricing in the industry so campaigns can scale one-to-one conversations with a speedy average response time of 90 seconds."
Leaders at Text Request are eager to help groups and campaigns affected by the response to COVID-19.
