“Because of the NGP VAN integration within Impactive, we were able to merge field and fundraising (from a data perspective) more than I’ve ever been able to. We were able to match records from our fundraising database to VAN, then use Impactive to follow up with donors with a volunteer recruitment ask.”


campaigns and organizations trust Impactive to organize and mobilize their volunteers.

10DLC & your texting program

Wondering how evolving “10DLC” regulations will affect your texting program? We’re 10DLC experts, with hundreds of millions of messages sent; our team will help you send texts without hassle. 
What is 10DLC?

“10DLC” is the colloquial term used in this industry to refer to evolving texting regulations enforced by mobile carriers like Verizon and AT&T. (If you were wondering, 10DLC technically refers to “10-digit long code,” which is a standard 10-digit phone number.) 

These regulations mean that all organizations doing texting (electoral, nonprofit, etc.) are required to register their “brand” and receive approval from third-party vetting agencies before they can send texts.

How do I register for 10DLC?

You’ll submit a straightforward registration form right within Impactive, and we’ll facilitate the rest. To submit your registration, all you’ll need is simple organization info like legal name, EIN, address, etc. Learn more about the registration process here

Political entities (campaigns, parties, PACs, etc.) may need to first obtain a Campaign Verify token before they can submit their registration form in Impactive; when you fill out your registration form in Impactive, we’ll let you know if you need to complete that process first. 

When can I start texting? 

10DLC registration must be submitted and approved before you can send any texts. Current registration timelines are anywhere from 1-3 weeks; unfortunately, there’s no way to expedite this process, as it’s managed by third parties. Given these timelines, we encourage all clients to register ASAP to get the process moving.

After you submit your registration form, you’ll be able to monitor your registration’s progress with our built-in status tracker within Impactive; you’ll receive emails when you’re approved for Peer-to-Peer Texting and Broadcast Texting, respectively. 

What else do I need to know?

We strongly recommend our clients to follow other guidelines set by 10DLC regulations, like Registration via Impactive is completely free, though if you’re a political entity requiring a Campaign Verify token, you’ll need to pay Campaign Verify’s $95 one-time fee. 

Even if you’ve registered before with a different vendor, you’ll need to re-register with Impactive; registration applies only to a specific texting “lane”, per-vendor. 

After your registration is approved, you’ll still need to take care to adhere to texting compliance best practices like identifying your brand in your scripts, including opt-out language in each initial message, and more. Those best practices are summarized here
