Ken and I recently attended the Reed Awards in Atlanta. The Reed Awards is hosted by Campaigns & Elections magazines as a way to recognize companies in the political world that are delivering exceptional content and products.
We had some fun before the big event. Shane D’Aprile from Campaigns and Elections called our gift “major league swag!”
At my presentation, we may have slipped in some swag for the attendees. Oh, and I also talked about how your campaign can benefit from a great phone program.
We had a great time. More from the 2020 Reed Awards soon.
In the fall of 2019, Campaigns & Elections magazine allowed me to write some articles discussing a variety of topics. Campaigns & Elections is a publication every campaign operative should be tracking. They constantly have insightful information and features from the very best in the business.
Every cycle seems to bring about a fresh innovation that reaches voters differently or a new tech that helps a campaign run more efficiently. But one campaign principle that hasn’t seen much change over the years is how we utilize volunteers. I predict this is the next big thing for the GOP.
I’ve been doing quite a bit of work lately with the team over at Campaigns & Elections. If you’ve missed some of that, check out these posts here and here.
In the world of politics and consulting, Campaigns & Elections is really unmatched in the information and networking opportunities that they provide in this field. They have countless experts on-hand and even more that lend their voices to the constantly evolving world of campaigns.
I’ve really been enjoying sharing some insights with my friends over at Campaigns & Elections lately. If you missed it, here are a few articles of mine they’ve shared with their readers.
They recently shared another, The Myth of Overnight Success in the Political Industry.
Here’s a teaser for you:
Americans love overnight success. We believe this myth like we believe George Washington chopped down a cherry tree. That’s why shows like American Idol and The Voice are so popular year after year. But the truth is much less glamorous than the fantasy.
There are two kinds of overnight success in the political industry. You’re either a “Child Prodigy” or an “Iceberg.”
Being a great campaign manager is much different from being a great business owner. As a consultant or vendor, your mission is aligned with your clients. (And if it’s not, you’d better stop and figure out why). However, your mission is not identical.
Also, Campaigns & Elections provides incredible tools, tactics, techniques and updates on everything that has to do with political campaigns, consulting and media. If you’re not already reading their materials, I highly recommend it!
