Frequently Asked Questions
Do you supply phone numbers?
—No. It’s illegal to just blast text messages to a list of numbers. Individuals have to ‘opt-in’ to receive messages.
How do I get people to opt-in?
—As texting experts, we help you. We have multiple methods for gaining subscribers, including polling, advertising, incentivizing, and more. Read our case studies for examples: https://raindroptext.com/case-studies
Will I be bugging people by texting them?
—No! SMS text messaging is 100% opt-in based, which means users choose to receive messages. In the initial message they are provided instructions on how to opt-out, as well as a notice about how many messages they can expect to receive. So there are no surprises. People know what they are getting!
How do I know what to text?
—We give you best practices to follow, but we also have our Raindrop Managed Services Plan
Will I really raise money via text?
—-Yes! The most effective way is via live events, but we have various other strategies as well. We have a built-in fundraising guarantee also. See our Text Fundraising case study for an example: https://raindroptext.com/case-studies/
What about FEC regulations for donations?
—-For campaigns, our donation page automatically caps individual donations at the federal limit. Necessary data such as citizenship and occupation are also captured.
Can I cancel my service anytime?
—Yes, the service is month-to-month.
