Texting is the most cost-effective mode of voter outreach
Texting has a high rate of engagement relative to most canvassing and phone banking. Texting has a nearly 100% open rate (you can’t not see it!) and a high engagement rate (10–24% of recipients respond to the initial message) compared to a 9% answer rate for phone calls and 6% open rate for emails
Texting meets voters where they are: their cellphone
Texting allows for highly controlled messaging: Because texting conversations happen with slight time lags, when voters ask questions not covered by the script, texters can research their responses and provide accurate and detailed replies
Texting is an excellent way to reach a likely progressive demographic: According to the Pew Research Center, cellphone owners are more likely to be young. black or Latino, college educated, and urban rather than rural
Texting provides a way to connect with logistically hard-to-reach voters
SFV Indivisible adds that texting together on zoom is fun, supportive, and increases the number of messages sent.
That is not scientific but a universal sentiment!!
