Overview for Government Officials

Receive unprecedented insights into your constituency, even when they only passively engage

A communication dashboard that's actually useful

We mapped California: As soon as someone in your district signs-up for CivicBell, they'll automatically follow you, taking the burden of reaching your constituency off your shoulders.

We use analytics: For each post on CivicBell you'll see the demographic breakdown of the district you reached out to, and actual or estimated demographic information of residents who engaged on your post.

We count views as engagement: Your constituents don't need to write comments or answer surveys (though we'd appreciate that), their actual or estimated demographic information is being recorded even when they just look at your post. You'll get unprecedented insights into whom your reached and whom you haven't.

Easily plan your engagements each step of the way

We help you plan: Write as many posts in "unpublished" as you like and have them auto-publish on a specific date.

Discussions and Surveys close: You can set a time limit for each survey & discussion post, making sure you only receive input as long as the topic is relevant.

Delete but not forgotten: Public records requirements can be a headache. Not with CivicBell. Even when you delete a post we securely retain a copy that can easily be requested only by you (or where mandated by law).
