Using the Net in your Small Budget Campaign

Jim Fleming

This article originally appeared in Winning Campaigns Magazine .

I canít e-mail my love. I canít fax you my heart. I canít see your face in cyberspace. I donít know where to start.† -Jimmy Buffet

Online Politics is Also Local

The other 99% percent

Presidential candidates, most  notably the Dean campaign in 2004 and McCain campaign in 2000, tend to dominate discussions of online campaigning.

A lot of campaign get their data straight from the local registrar. This data is cheap, but it's also unreliable. The local agencies don't usually have the funds to regularly purge the voter rolls to make sure they are fresh and up-to-date.

Give Your Volunteers the Tools They Need

Alex Gorman



Picture your volunteer walking through a neighborhood in your district. He's going door-to-door for you, telling people about your campaign, trying to turn them into supporters. Are you preparing that volunteer to get the job done? Does he know anything about the people who live in that next house or is he just knocking on the door and hoping for the best?

Now picture him with a simple clip board, on it are only the addresses of registered voters you want to target. He's coming to 24 Maple Street and knows that Janet Smith lives here. He knows she's 53 and isn't registered to

Media Tours Are Key to Organizational Messaging

Al Madison



At its essence successful public relations is all about story telling -- and every campaign or non-profit, no matter who they may be, has a great story to tell.  It may take a while to identify and massage your campaignís story and it may also take some practice to refine delivering the messages and preparing for questions, but once youíve settled on the dimensions of your story and who is best equipped to tell it, then it becomes very important to determine which audiences and supporters you need to influence ­who needs to hear and understand your story.
