5 Reasons Why You Should Switch to NationBuilder Today

NationBuilder brands itself as “Software for leaders” — so it’s no surprise that when we work on awesome campaigns, like the Maxime Bernier leadership campaign, we use it.

NationBuilder is a great, all-encompassing tools for people who want to run campaigns. Its core functions include serving as your campaign database, website and e-mail marketing tool – but it can do so much more.

That’s why when we launched eddt, one of the first things we did was get certified as NationBuilder Architects.


Here are five reasons why NationBuilder is right for your campaign:


We are a full-service digital agency – that means we have expertise in every aspect of digital campaigning, from web development, to graphic design, to e-mail marketing, and more.

We couldn’t do all of this without a tool like NationBuilder. It has everything you need to build a campaign from scratch – and even established politicians, like Jason Kenney, have switched to NationBuilder.

Data is King

One of the most important things political campaigns do is build lists of supporters. It’s what we use to fundraise, sell memberships, and get out the vote during elections. NationBuilder’s database is easy to learn, easy to use, and best of all – fully integrated with your website. Your team will spend less time entering data and more time using it — so you can get to door knocking, making phone calls, and winning campaigns.


NationBuilder makes online fundraising easy by integrating with payment solutions like Stripe and PayPal, without charging any additional fees. We’ve used NationBuilder to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Canadian politicians, and we don’t plan on stopping any time soon.

Marketing Made Easy

We’ve worked on a lot of campaigns over the past 10 years, so naturally we’ve worked with a lot of different platforms. We used to have to use multiple solutions to make things work – a CRM, connected to an e-mail marketing service, connected to ten other things!

With NationBuilder, it’s all in one place, and connected to your database. Want to send an e-mail, text message, and Facebook post to all of your supporters on election day? You can do it almost instantly through NationBuilder.


NationBuilder is one of the most affordable platforms we’ve ever used for campaigns. No, it’s not free – but nothing in life worth having is!

Their pricing scales based on the size of your nation – meaning it’s super affordable for small campaigns. If you’re an established campaign with tens of thousands of supporters, it costs a bit more – but they give you the tools to supercharge your fundraising, making the cost of NationBuilder a drop in the bucket.
