The transition point for a serious campaign is good voter outreach. With NationBuilder, we give you the tools and the free voter data you need to win a political campaign.

Get started now with a free NationBuilder trial account.

NationBuilder has community action and content pages built into a full-featured and customizable CMS. Your website is directly integrated into your contacts database, as is social media. It’s just more advanced than Salsa Lab’s products like DemocracyInAction. NationBuilder also supports voter data and outreach.

Here’s what Liberal Art has to say about NationBuilder vs. Salsa+Drupal: “NationBuilder’s tool suite is competitive with competing platforms, but its tools are fully integrated into the CMS.  This means less setup and easier management of your messaging and action campaigns. What’s more, social sharing functions are baked into every page, tool, and action taken by your supporters.”

Blue State Digital, recently acquired by UK-based marketing giant WPP, provides custom solutions for progressive campaigns.

NationBuilder is a nonpartisan community organizing system with wide adoption in the U.S., UK and Canada. It brings together social media, customizable websites with content and community action pages, and email and text blasting.

NationBuilder is an alternative for Blue State Digital for campaigns and non-profits that want to run their own actions and emails without need for costly integrations and consulting contracts.

Read what Liberal Art has to say about what makes NationBuilder different from Blue State Digital, Salsa (DemocracyInAction) and Convio.
