Lobby Day Tips: Make Your Virtual Lobby Days Impactful
How can you get the most out of your Virtual lobby day?
Every year groups go to Washington, D.C. or their state Capitol to try and impact legislation. At the same time, they are there with a dozen other groups doing lobby visits and it’s even hard to get nonprofit lobby days on the calendar. Lobby days can be a complicated business, but we’re here to help.
Bottom line: If you want to make virtual lobby visit count, you need to think ahead and have a real plan.
Issue advocacy campaigns start with the best intentions. We begin with a coalition that cares about our issue and wants to make a real difference. But without a bit of strategic planning and issue campaign know-how, you will fall off track.
At The Campaign Workshop, we love issue advocacy campaigns. As consultants, we get to work on a wide variety of campaigns and with a wide variety of clients. While we could never pick a favorite, working with a group of passionate people to make a substantive change on an issue they care about is our jam. People working on advocacy campaigns are the experts in their issues and are a true resource when we are working hand in hand on crafting a campaign to reach a wider audience

When you get into politics, it’s hard to resist the all too common tunnel vision of focusing only on politics. But be careful – binge watching Veep or The West Wing is not going to help you run a better campaign or organization; nor will reading solely political books.
The fact is, you are running a business. And while we like to think of politics and business as totally separate realms, it’s tough to run any political operation without a Business 101 crash course. So, take a break from the latest Clinton campaign staffer or Obama aide memoir you are probably reading, and check out some of our non-political book recommendations. Below are ten non-political books that will be helpful to any politico running a campaign, a non-profit, or really any operation.
Advocacy Engagement Funnel: Don't Miss Your Advocacy Engagement Opportunity...
What is the advocacy engagement funnel?
It is hard to be intentional about advocacy engagement. That is why we built this handy advocacy engagement funnel. Think of your advocacy strategy as a funnel. You need to define what a high-value contact vs. a low-value contact will be. You want to have a clear strategy to move your action-takers to make a more meaningful action. The more personal the action the higher the value.
