How To Launch Your P2P Texting Campaign in 5 Easy Steps

How To Launch Your P2P Texting Campaign in 5 Easy Steps

Imagine you are organizing a birthday party but forgot to send the invites in advance. You are sweating and looking for a quick solution. What do you do? You don’t start creating a Facebook event, you don’t start writing an email. Instead, you start texting your friends!

Why are you doing this? Because you want to reach them quickly, and you want them to RSVP now. Texting is the best tool to do this because 90% of texts are read within the first three minutes and 98% of text messages are read. This is exactly the kind of readability what you want for your campaign message too.

The only question you might still have in your mind is: “How can I text hundreds or thousands of people while staying personal within a short time?” That is where RumbleUp’s P2P texting platform comes into play. P2P texting is the smartest way to have personal, actionable conversations between an organization or group and its supporters at scale.

RumbleUp provides a solution which allows you to design personalized messages and text them to voters. P2P texting can be used in countless ways including GOTV, boosting event attendance, recruiting volunteers, advocacy, calling elected officials, signing petitions, raising money, etc.

In case you are still skeptical about trying out texting, let us explain step-by-step how easy it is to set up a campaign and start sending messages:

Step 1: Choose a plan and hear back the same day

Visit rumbleup.com and fill out a bit of information so we can get to know you. You’ll hear back from us within a few hours, along with an invite to sign a contract and log into your private portal. From there, our team of experts is available to help with your questions and train you on best practices. Have trouble getting the right data? Don’t worry, we can help!

Step 2: Set up your profile

Just like on any other platform, you will log into the portal, create your profile, set up your password and then you’re ready to put a credit card on file and set up your first campaign!

Step 3: Set up your campaign

Upload your data, write the message, attach any media, add emojis or link a survey, website, or other call to action. After sending some tests to your phone and confirming that it looks exactly the way you want it to look, you are ready to go!

Step 4: Invite your volunteers to download RumbleUp

A single volunteer can send up to 2,500+ texts an hour. That’s a lot of sending power! If you don’t want to send everything by yourself though, you can invite a team to help. An entire team can be working on sending to the same list at the same time, so no need to worry about managing confusing workflows, reassigning replies, etc. Our system makes all of this easy.

Step 5: Start texting!

Once your volunteers have warmed up their fingers and you’ve made your message live, you can give the green light to your texting team and they can start sending messages and using pre-scripted responses to speed up the reply process.

As always, our team is here to help, every step of the way.

Now imagine the next time you want to host an event, raise money, get your supporters to the polls, or get the word out about your platform or cause. You don’t need to worry anymore because with RumbleUp, you can text your friends and supporters quickly while staying personal — and the best part is, they will see your message!
