Raise More Political Text Donations Quickly

Political SMS marketing is the most reliable and effective way to raise donations for democratic fundraising campaigns and communicate with small donors across America. Some political fundraising campaigns are switching to using Tatango for SMS donations after being disappointed with their experience with Mobile Commons, Waterfall, Hipcricket, and other branches of the Upland Mobile Messaging family. Why? Because Tatango wins against Upland and Mobile Commons when comparing send speed, ease of use, deliverability, segmentation, and analytics -- making it easier to raise SMS donations for any political cause.

Plus, Tatango wins on speed. Tatango sends SMS and MMS messages at 6 million me
