Political Campaign Tips: #Winning
One of my favorite political campaign tips is, that campaign fundamentals can be the difference between winning and losing. No matter what level of race you are running, campaign fundamentals are core to winning. Good political campaign advice can help give a campaign a good start. If you need a campaign team you can always reach out and talk with us about consulting on your campaign.
Here are 9 essential political campaign tips to get your campaign moving in the right direction with a couple of essential bonus tips at the end:
Don’t run unless you have a chance to win. There is a political campaign legend that if you run enough times, you will build name recognition and get elected. In the majority of races, this is not an accurate presumption. It is the reverse that is true: the more times you run, the less likely you are to win. Most folks who run the second or third time do not win.
Know how many votes you need to win. Every year I see candidates who chose the wrong race to run in. Vote goals don’t need to be that complicated, but any political campaign worth its salt needs a vote goal. Often, the biggest mistake people make is not calculating a vote goal at all. The simple act of creating a vote goal can save you a lot of time campaigning for a race you might not have had a shot at.
