SMS for Advocacy

Text messaging use has seen a huge jump for advocacy campaigns, and from 2020 to 2021 the number of messages sent more than doubled. Over 7,480,000 advocacy text messages were sent by our clients in 2021. Action rates for SMS have also increased gradually, reaching 1.6 percent in 2021. Access the report to learn more about our findings on social media and text for advocacy campaigns.

What best describes your work?

We asked our clients in advocacy roles how they would best describe their work in 2021. The majority (over 46 percent) said they are working harder, compared with last year, and feeling optimistic about the future.  

We also asked what your biggest challenges are in your advocacy role, and overwhelmingly those challenges are the volume of issues to monitor, a small team size, and lack of time and budget.
