Overall Satisfaction with EveryAction
We use EveryAction to send out emails about our coalition's upcoming events, sending action alerts to targeted elected officials when we want them to support pieces of legislation or bills or thanking them for their support that aligns with our campaign--whether that is through contacting their office or filling out a tweet that will call them out publicly. We also use it to fill out forms, send out our monthly newsletter, and reach out to media. It is being used across the entire organization and solves our list building problem.
- List building - automatically adding people into masterlist and overriding them if they are already involved.
- Offers different types of online action.
- Social media friendly.
- Uploading our Google Excel sheets from Zoom registration can be a bit frustrating and doesn't always work.
- Finding the forms for sign-ups is a bit complicated.
- Selecting particular elected targets and allowing people outside their state to send to them if it's a regional issue.
- Time saved from grouping media lists.
- List building.
- Time saved from uploading lists by using the Zoom integration.
It's nice to see how each email is performing with the open rates, unsubscribing numbers, and click rates. I think it would be nice to have an analysis of the overall demographics of our list, best times of the day and days of the week when our members are opening and reading the emails or responding to action alerts that works specifically for our audience.
I have never encountered an issue with application errors or unplanned outages. I would say that sometimes the list uploading does not work for me and I have to try it again randomly and then it does which can be a little infuriating. But other than that, EveryAction works seamlessly for me!
EveryAction's overall performance has definitely impacted our list building since we are a four-state coalition and can send emails out tailored to zip codes/issues. We are also able to promote action alerts on social media and emails which is great because volunteers were looking for ways to get involved. It also helps our members know when our events are coming up.

Salsa Engage I believe is a bit more sophisticated with sending text messages but we ended up choosing EveryAction because of what you get for the price and that you do not need to know how to code--a lot of it is drag and drop for the formatting and that makes my life a lot easier to learn how to use a new tool!
It's great for getting out action alerts for campaigns and coalitions--not so much for internal messaging. We use another platform like Basecamp for internal campaign communications and sharing of documents. EveryAction, however, is great for raising donations, list building to external partners, and promoting our work via social media. I do wish that for our newsletter, there is a hyperlink that can share our newsletter that goes out via email so that I can tweet it.
