Tips and Tactics Advocacy Campaigns Can Glean from 2016 Political Campaigns for Successful Digital Advocacy
Digital Advocacy is on everyone's mind. Last month, I attended the Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington, D.C. and one panel caught my eye: New Tools From the 2016 Elections That Nonprofit Techies Need to Know About.

Name Recognition, What is it? Does Name ID Really Matter in Politics?

Political Consulting Advice: Focus on People, Time, and Money
One of the roles I enjoy most is teaching folks how to run for office and run campaigns.

The recent off-year elections may not have gotten a ton of national press, but for people living in states where major offices were decided, they were extremely important. In some ways, a campaign is a campaign, and your online communications program should be reflective of that. In others though, off-year elections are pretty different, and planning your digital strategy with those differences in mind can yield some great things.
The biggest issue? Less people are paying attention. This means you have to work even harder than before to get people to notice you.
