Broadcast Texting

Send mass text messages to lists of volunteers or uploaded subscribers. Share fundraising appeals, announcements, calls to action, and more - then carry on a two-way conversation with personalized scripts. Reaching out to your network has never been easier.

A view of Impactive's mobile inbox with a broadcast messaging conversation.

Effective Fundraising

Grow a donor list with text messaging, one of the highest-converting outreach channels. Use dynamic script variables to personalize appeals for segmented lists of contacts.

Two-Way Conversations

If subscribers respond to broadcast messages without using a keyword, staffers can carry on two-way conversations right from the inbox, just like with Peer-to-Peer Texting.

Segmentation and Insights

Filter subscribers based on forms filled out, location, voting history, and more. Measure message performance with A/B testing or segmented lists of subscribers.

“We’ve been using Broadcast Texting to recruit volunteers to our weekly relational text banks. A bunch of people turned up to our meeting because we used it. Broadcast is becoming a really popular tool at Community Change, not just for our relational program, so this will be an exciting initiative for us.”

10DLC & your texting program

Wondering how new 10DLC regulations will affect your texting program? Our team is prepared to help you send your texts without hassle.
What is 10DLC?

10DLC refers to a set of texting regulations enforced by mobile carriers like Verizon and AT&T. With these regulations, political campaigns and organizations sending SMS or MMS messages (via both Peer-to-Peer Texting and Broadcast Texting) must register for 10DLC or face possible fines and blocked messages.

How do I register for 10DLC?

Impactive facilitates the registration process through our messaging vendor, Twilio, for all clients looking to send SMS or MMS texts. All you need to do is fill out and submit Impactive’s registration form with brand information, including business name, address, and type. We’ll do the rest.

Can I start texting right away after submitting my registration form?

10DLC registration timing varies significantly; while many registrations are accepted within a few days, others take up to a few weeks if additional information is requested. You can stay updated on your registration by viewing a status tracker on the peer-to-peer or broadcast pages of the admin dashboard. While your registration is pending, we recommend keeping texting to a minimum to avoid carrier-imposed consequences.

What else do I need to know?

We strongly recommend our clients to follow other guidelines set by 10DLC regulations, like identifying your organization as the sender in initial outbound messages. Find Impactive’s best practices for minimizing list errors and opt-out rates in our Help Center here.
