Simplify 10DLC Registration with RumbleUp

Struggling to navigate 10DLC Registration with The Campaign Registry? RumbleUp is here to guide you through every step of the way! 

While 10DLC registration is certainly not a new topic in 2024, the space is ever-changing and continues to be a frustrating hurdle for many looking to start texting quickly. The registration process can be incredibly daunting for those new to texting as they sift through too much or too little information to determine what is relevant to their organization and how to get started. 

At RumbleUp, simplifying 10DLC registration for our clients is a top priority. In addition to our streamlined application and robust documentation, our dedicated team of TCR experts provides comprehensive support and guidance to ensure a hassle-free experience for campaigns, non-profits, businesses, and more. 

What is The Campaign Registry (TCR)?

2024 - Simplify 10DLC Registration with RumbleUp - What is The Campaign Registry (TCR)
There are many key players in the 10DLC registration ecosystem – the organization registering their texting campaigns, the vendors through which they will send these messages, vetting partners, phone aggregators, phone carriers… the list goes on. 

The Campaign Registry (TCR) is a huge player, serving as the centralized hub for this ecosystem. It is where applications for all messaging campaigns that will send texts over a standard 10-digit long code phone number (10DLC) through an application-to-person (A2P) texting medium are submitted and maintained.

Because peer-to-peer (P2P) texting and A2P texting each involve messages sent from a service or platform, the phone carriers recognize both as A2P and undergo the same registration process with TCR.

RumbleUp exclusively uses these 10-digit long code phone numbers to send your P2P projects. Short code numbers and toll free numbers, which are not used for P2P texting, also require registration or verification, but it is a separate process from 10DLC.


Benefits and Importance of 10DLC Registration

Why register with TCR, you ask? In addition to MMS messages which include a media attachment, 10DLC registration enables you to send SMS messages, which are text-only messages with no media attachment. Both registered MMS and SMS messages are sent over your dedicated local phone numbers, making your messaging more recognizable and, in turn, increasing engagement and building trust with your audience. 

By adhering to this industry regulation, you avoid phone carrier fees for unregistered traffic and ensure uninterrupted communication with your contacts. 

Perhaps most importantly, registering with TCR positions you as a compliant actor in the political messaging space, building confidence and credibility among your audience and regulatory authorities alike. You also play an important role in legitimizing the political texting industry as a whole for other good actors.


Common Complaints and Roadblocks

2024 - Simplify 10DLC Registration with RumbleUp - Common Complaints and Roadblocks
10DLC registration involves more than providing TCR with your EIN, contact information, and campaign description; there are also several requirements related to your online presence and use of mobile opt-ins you may collect, and these points of compliance continue to shift. Further, the political cycle moves quickly, and lengthy review and vetting times pose a significant roadblock to getting a timely message to your audience. 

However, the biggest hurdle is simply understanding what is required and how long it will take. 

At RumbleUp, we understand these roadblocks intimately. Our team of former campaign and non-profit staffers uses their experience personally navigating the implementation of political texting programs to offer tailored registration advice to our clients. Based on these experiences, we've developed resources and strategies to minimize these challenges and help clients register easily.
