I use NationBuilder to build websites for my nonprofit, advocacy, and political campaign clients. NationBuilder is a powerful tool that leaders and organizers can use to grow and engage with their audience online. I have worked with hundreds of NationBuilder users to maximize its utility and get people to take action.
  • Provides an excellent framework for quickly building scaleable websites that are easy to edit
  • The low learning curve for managing a people database, segmenting groups, and targeting influencers based on intelligent insights
  • Scales well as your organization grows
  • WYSIWYG editor is basic without the ability to customize and add custom fields. This is especially evident when compared to WordPress
  • Donation functionality does not support fingerprint payments
  • Email templates are difficult to customize compared to Constant Contact and MailChimp
If you are managing a nonprofit agency, advocacy group, or political campaign, NationBuilder is likely the best tool available for the job. It has everything you need in one package, excellent support from NationBuilder reps, and plenty of reputable case studies that show its effectiveness. There is also a robust network of capable partners that build custom solutions and provide consulting.

I currently do consultant work for an organization called South Carolina Carry. We use NationBuilder for digital outreach. It allows us to find and engage current and potential supporters. We use NationBuilder to work these supporters up the ladder of engagement.
  • NationBuilder is great for fundraising. You can send an email blast and see how much money it raised. You can publish a petition and have it lead to a donate page. With the higher level plans you can easily allow new members to join and pay for membership through your site.
  • Petitions, surveys, and other forms of engagement. NationBuilder provides a number of ways to interact with supporters. It's very easy to set up a survey or petition, and you're able to capture the data of participants.
  • Social sharing. NationBuilder makes it simple for supporters to share your pages, petitions, blog posts, etc., by providing share links on every page. They also allow you to edit the default text for sharing.
  • NationBuilder lacks the ability to create a message board.
  • NationBuilder needs to add threaded comments so you can respond to people who comment on your page.
  • NationBuilder needs to make it easier to offer tiered memberships.
If you're a grassroots organization trying to reach and mobilize supporters, NationBuilder is one of the best tools around. I don't think it would be as effective for a commercial enterprise.

We use NationBuilder for clients needing a comprehensive solution for advocacy. This platform is great for politicians, advocacy groups, and non-profit organizations.
  • Great platform for managing website, social media, and donations in a single dashboard.
  • Some particularly helpful features includes turf maps for walking door to door.
  • I really appreciate the included voter files.
  • Some of the native integrations are limited.
  • Advanced plugin support, similar to Wordpress, would make this a very powerful competitor.
  • Admin navigation and functionality is not the most intuitive.
Excellent for local and state level political campaigns. Also has worked very well for some of our non-profit clients. We do not currently use the platform outside of these scenarios.
