As an elected official, your office spends a lot of time communicating with constituents. Whether you're updating them on new legislation or asking them for support, there are a lot of ways to get in touch with your voters, such as enewsletters, virtual town halls, and social media. However, these modern technologies, like any technology, have their limitations. To receive emails and social media notifications, your residents must have a computer, laptop, smart phone, or other device as well as an internet connection. And, while telephone town halls are an effective way to bridge this technology gap, as landline users can also call in, this type of outreach still requires your constituents to take time out of their busy schedules to participate, which may not always be possible. So, what is the answer? How can Members reach their constituents in a way that is fast, easy, and accessible but also effective? Well, the answer is simple: IQ Text Messaging.
In this digital age, social media presence has become a critical component to building a brand. Whether you're starting a small business or running a Congressional office, chances are you're on social media. In fact, according to Quorum, members of Congress posted from official social accounts over 500,000 times in 2018. If you combine this with Pew Research Center's finding that about half of Americans have engaged in civil or social activism via social media (as of 2018), it's easy to see how platforms such as Twitter or Facebook can be tools for political change.
