What is TextOut?

TextOut by Civitech is peer-to-peer texting software built by and for members of the progressive movement. With hundreds of millions of texts sent nationwide for races up and down the ballot — from Congressionals, statewide races for Attorneys General and Secretary of State, to locals such as County Coroner — we know that real conversations create transformative results.

TextOut also helps organizations reach voters about the issues that matter most, like abortion rights, gun violence, education, and the economy.

Why Choose TextOut?

We know you don’t have money, time, or volunteer capacity to waste in the remaining days of the election season. Here’s why TextOut can help you reach your electoral goals as efficiently as possible:

TextOut is Flexible

We allow you to choose the level of service that’s right for you. 

Our Standard plan gives you the power to create and manage all your programs and volunteers in one easy-to-use platform. Turnkey is a full-service option where a team of SMS experts work with you to designs and executes all aspects of your program, end-to-end, based on your strategic goals.

Check out our handy graphic for more information on the differences between Standard and Tunkey. 

TextOut is Affordable

Contacting, persuading, and mobilizing voters can be incredibly expensive. And with a limited budget, you want to be as targeted and efficient as possible. Texting allows you to have real conversations with voters … at a fraction of the cost of canvassing, direct mail, and phone calls.

TextOut keeps our pricing as easy and affordable as possible. You pay one price for each conversation – the Initial Outbound Message in each program and all the responses – no matter how many characters you use.

Our pricing allows you to easily manage your program costs and align them to your budget so that you can easily make critical spending decisions.

TextOut conserves volunteer hours

Volunteers are invaluable resources, and you want to ensure you use their time wisely. With TextOut, your volunteers can have quality conversations on a large scale without spending time knocking on doors or waiting for a voter to answer on an autodialer.

Plus, with the power send feature, Text Out gives you another tool to help you manage your time and resources to engage more people.

If you’re interested in an even higher service option, consider Turnkey. Our texting experts can send and respond to texts on your behalf.

TextOut saves staff and candidate time

TextOut can save campaign staff time by reducing time spent on traditional outreach strategies and managing volunteers. By more efficiently contacting voters, staff and candidates have time for other crucial tasks.

If your campaign is looking for a big time saver, consider Turnkey. A full-service option for texting, Turnkey includes a dedicated team to help you identify goals, build your texting strategy, write scripts, test your messaging, send and reply to texts, and manage backend data. While you collaborate with us throughout the process, the day-to-day management of the texting program falls to us, freeing you up for other important work.
