You may have heard it from friends during the last election cycle, “why am I getting so many texts from people I don’t know?!” Many lists send a lot of unsolicited (Peer-to-Peer) texts which can be overwhelming to voters. To ensure your short code list stands out from the Peer-to-Peer texts, we highly suggest adding a vCard to your account. Quite simply, a vCard is a virtual contact card that can be added to your subscribers' address books.

The vCard feature enables subscribers to save your number with associated information like your number, website, and icon in their Contacts. vCards increase program recognition, open rates and engagement by personalizing your text messages with a recognizable icon. It looks like your account still needs a vCard, click here to request one today.

Once you have your vCard, upload it into your MMS message. Not sure what messaging is appropriate? We’ve provided 3 sample messages below you can use or edit to fit your needs.
