The Union Calling Advantage
YOU CHOOSE THE AUDIENCE
Send messages to leaders-only, all your members, or just part of your membership. Reach out to the general public if they have asked you to stay in touch.
YOU HAVE CONTROL
You decide when the broadcast begins and when it ends. Set things up for one big broadcast, or split your campaign up over days or weeks.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Allow recipients who reply to your message with "help" to receive an automated follow-up message with a link to a website you provide. Recipients who reply with "stop" are immediately and automatically added to the opt-out list.
Get a report outlining the results of your SMS broadcast. Know how many members received the message, who replied with "help", and who opted-out using "stop". Any replies received in response to your campaign are also included in your report.
