    Content Marketing in the World of Politics

    In my 20 years working in politics, I have seen a lot of things change. Technology in particular has done a lot to change the way that we communicate with voters.

    Four Tips for Nonprofit Facebook Ads

    Choose the Right Image for Your Ad

    Your nonprofit facebook ad will need an image to display on users newsfeeds or right-hand rails.

If you sell shoes, pick your snazziest pair, put them on a clean background that shows them off. If you’re running for office, you could use an image of a local landmark or a picture of a well-known person who is endorsing you. Whatever image you choose, make sure it is arresting, and communicates something important about you, your cause, or your business.
