Blue Utopia Clients and Users
Congratulations to all whose election turned out successfully. As always, there's a fair amount of housecleaning to do right after a big campaign season.
Build your organization in the non-campaign season. You’ve just spent the past several months trying to get people’s attention and support and many of you built impressive audiences and raised significant sums online this year for the first time ever. Yet, most campaigns will shut down completely and start back up in 2 or 4 years at ground level. As this campaign season closes and the process of governing begins, consider using your online system to build an effective organization that stretches from campaign to campaign. Consider keeping your supporters informed and engaged. Consider building your base of supporters throughout the year. These activities can make your successive campaigns much easier, as well as insulate you from voter attitude swings that impacted many this past year. Some of you already do this quite well. In the coming weeks, we will send out a list of best practices that some of you have done in the past to build your organizations in the non-campaign season.
Announcing Off-Season Professional Services Help. One of the more common problems that our clients have expressed is the limited personnel resources for performing campaign-related tasks, yet the need to keep at least a semi-active online presence. Many of you have asked for limited-scope assistance in the off-cycle. To meet this need, we are offering a service the provides a half-hour of web/online updates per month for $25. If you want to know more about this, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
