The revolution is in your pocket
The success of Revolution Messaging’s mobile program has helped pass meaningful health care reform, elect progressive officials, and helped unions organize another generation of hard workers. All mobile campaigns use our uniquely built SMS platform that gives each of our clients the ability to manage their own mobile efforts, access real-time reporting, and customize their mobile contact lists.
Our platform was built with the grassroots organizer in mind, acting as the central dashboard to launch all mobile missions from and receive reports on how well the campaign did.
But we’re not just sending out text messages – we’re building applications that work for a variety of devices, setting up interactive voice response lines, and rendering video, all with real time reporting and features unique to your needs. Revolution Messaging is committed to providing your organization with the latest technology to face the digital frontier ahead.
Also known as Short Message Service (SMS), text messaging represents the most universally available and widely accessed data service in the U.S. today: It is compatible with over 99% of cell phones in use and is frequently used by over 65% of the population. The platform offers uploading and exporting ability, list segmentation, personalization, polling and trivia functionality, and easy to use reporting. There is also the capability to create multiple keywords and schedule messages for future sends.
Interactive Voice Response
Our Interactive Voice Response (IVR) platform can be used for advocacy work, organizing efforts or any other immediate calls to action. Your organization can utilize a toll-free or local phone number that allows supporters to interact with either inbound or outbound calling tools. Our platform is the solution for building compelling calls-to-action for your organization’s SMS or email subscribers.
Today’s cell phones can handle much more than text messaging, allowing users to send pictures and short videos. Revolution’s Multimedia Messaging platform empowers your supporters to send vibrant, rich media directly to you for presentation via Web site, redistribution to other supporters or in-venue broadcast on the big screen.
Your supporters are everywhere and your campaign information should be as well. Mobile Web provides the ideal medium for further information, for both displaying it and gathering it. Revolution’s custom-built Mobile Web solutions will present your campaign’s need-to-know information in a format that’s easy to read on mobile devices. Going further, Revolution’s Mobile Web technology allows supporters to submit their contact information for follow-up or to donate, further connecting your online presence to its mobile counterpart.
Today’s top mobile devices offer capabilities far beyond the standard cellphone. Revolution will empower you to leverage these capabilities for organization and action. The Obama Mobile iPhone application demonstrated an ability to connect to supporters in a new and powerful way. The application integrated with the device’s address book, offered location-based look-up of events (what’s happening near me right now?), and provided full access to the campaign’s issue papers, news updates, photos and video feeds. With Revolution’s downloadable client solutions, you can engage supporters in a full experience that takes advantage of their smart device capabilities, whether they use an iPhone, Blackberry or Android-powered solution. Your supporters have devices with the capacity to do just about anything they might do on their computer and more — why not take advantage of it? Connect them to their favorite causes through the only device people carry around with them for 18 hours a day instead of waiting and hoping they’ll become engaged later.
Every major outreach effort goes beyond the desktop into rallies, stadiums and concert venues. Revolution set a new bar for generating in-venue excitement via mobile during the 2008 campaign and beyond. From the Oprah rallies to the Inaugural balls, Revolution excited supporters with text-to-screen technology that broadcast their “shout-out,” declared their home state or allowed them to play trivia with 20,000 of their best friends. Revolution’s In-Venue platform can do the same for your organization and see that supporters at your event leave excited and, most importantly, connected with you.
