Community.com turns ✌️

This is some text inside of a div block.

Community launched in 2019 to reimagine and innovate the text message marketing space. We created this company to ensure Leaders, (people, brands and businesses that have a Community number) can use the technology to keep connected to their Members (audiences) at scale. 


Since our launch, we have welcomed the most innovative Leaders like Ashton Kutcher, Kerry Washington, PEOPLE, When We All Vote, Stacey Abrams, Raedio,  and more, onto the platform. These Leaders have used Community’s technology to drive impact, engagement and their businesses forward, free of social algorithm interference, spam or ads. From sharing exclusive news and drops to just saying hi, how are you or happy birthday - Leaders and the Members who invite them into their lives are the center of Community. 


Today, we have over 28MM Members on the platform, powered over 6B+ text messages, launched our Amplify program, an initiative created to support and help drive economic growth for small business owners in SoCal-- to date, we have supported over 30 Black, AAPI and LGBTQIA+ businesses- and more. In two years, we continue to be amazed with how our platform is being used - from casting extras on TV shows to sourcing song submissions to exclusive drops, sales, targeted conversations, scavenger hunts and more. 


In honor of this important milestone, we’re also excited to announce our new company’s branding and visual identity, which reflects our commitment to being a trusted communications channel amongst our Leaders and Members, supporting communities of all kinds, and our belief in being direct, easy to use, and a powerful platform.  To give our brand a refreshed look and feel, our internal teams worked in collaboration with Koto. This close partnership brought to life a refined logo, color palette, typography, and visual style we’re thrilled to share with you.
