More from our CHQ expert Marlys – she has advice for candidates getting into the race late and deciding to do blind ID or advocacy calls. #TrustTheExperts
I had the privilege of providing an update for the Republican State Leadership Committee. If you aren’t aware, the RSLC works to elect Republican candidates in a variety of races: legislative, lt. governor, attorney general and secretary of state.
They had an extremely successful 2020 campaign cycle – holding onto all of their chambers and flipping control in New Hampshire. This will help them pass conservative agendas across the country and in the fight for redistricting.
In March, I provided some insights for their contacts – what campaigns should be doing to prepare for their next election, trends I see coming and some lessons I’ve learned along the way.
Another great video full of tips from our CHQ expert, Marlys. Listen to what she has to say about script writing. https://loom.ly/YMFNg5E
I hope you all had a great week.
Back in March, I was able to sit down and really test out my podcasting skills with the crew at Cygnal. I’m thankful that Brent Buchanan gave me this opportunity. You’ll have to check it out. Here’s the teaser – what could I possibly be talking about here:

Let me know what you think! Have a great weekend.
I’m really proud of the hardworking team we’ve built here at CampaignHQ; and it’s even more fun when we can expand our CHQ family.
Devon Wood recently joined our team as a Campaign Director. Devon has a couple cycles under her belt on the campaign side, and she’s helped legislators navigate the official side. She’s not shy and has already hit the ground running here at CHQ.
Growing up as a farm kid in southern Iowa, Devon is no stranger to hard work and quick problem-solving. She worked at the statehouse while attending Simpson College and provided valuable insights to top tier committee chairs.
With Devon’s combined campaign and legislative experience, she can do much more than organize your next project and keep it on track. Devon’s experience allows her to truly understand what you are trying to accomplish and what tools would make the most sense for you to utilize at any given time.
Not everyone can handle the long hours, tough campaigns, and overall intensity of working in a political field, but Devon’s been there, done that and can’t wait to hop on the next one – hopefully yours!
“I’m a helper – I am always looking for ways to help those around me. Whether it’s making your job easier, taking something off your plate, or helping you find the best solution – I’d love to help you deliver your message.”
– Devon Wood
I’ve been harping on this for a few weeks, but I want to be clear – you do not have to feel beholden to big tech companies. Whether you’re an issue advocacy group or a campaign – the experts at CHQ will help you keep things moving forward instead of waiting around to see what big tech is going to allow you to do.
It’s time to turn to CHQ:
If you are a campaign or an issue advocacy organization, you can no longer rely on social platforms to deliver your message. Telephone townhalls are an effective way to communicate a message to an audience of thousands, over the phone and online. Update your membership and keep them engaged on your issues.
If you are a campaign or an issue advocacy organization, you can no longer rely on social platforms to deliver your message. Patch through calls empower YOU to identify like-minded people, educate them about your issue, and transfer them directly to their lawmaker’s office to make their voice heard. This tactic will help you target the fence sitters and focus your resources. #WeCanHelp
You cannot rely on Big Tech overlords to deliver your message. Time to quickly build membership or support for your issue with a telephone petition drive. Our CampaignHQ representatives explain your cause and ask the voter to add his/her name to your petition, collect emails, and recruit volunteers. #WeCanHelp
I noticed this great video the other day that Susan B. Anthony List put together. I thought it would make a good #FlashbackFriday post.
I’m so glad we could #ConfirmAmy and now the Supreme Court has a great, inspiring, conservative woman.
Have a great weekend,
The lookbacks to the 2020 election keep coming – and this time it’s all about peer-to-peer texting and its effectiveness in the past election cycle.
According to polling from Mitto, “campaign text messages were largely impactful; more than half of the recipients read all or most of the text messages they received from campaigns and nearly one-third reported that their voting decisions were influenced by the text messages. This was especially true as 37% of respondents reported that they felt influenced to register to vote because of campaign text messages they received ahead of the election.”
CampaignHQ knows the tremendous asset conTEXT can be to any candidate, elected official, organization or association. The value of peer-to-peer texting is that a real human being is making a connection with another.
While you have limited characters to work with, peer-to-peer texting is good for EVERYTHING.
- Introduce yourself to voters having a two-way conversation.
- Reach out to association members to help them engage on priority legislation.
- Share a 20 second video message directly to a constituent’s phone.
- Engage low propensity and undecided voters who are notoriously hard to reach.
- Share polling location information with voters you are trying to turnout.
- Fight back against political attacks or disinformation.
We can share images, sound, video, and website links via conTEXT peer to peer text message.
CHQ is the industry leader when it comes to peer-to-peer texting. Our team knows how to deliver the right message to help you be successful. Our agents personally send and reply to every single message. We can even track who clicked on your link!
conTEXT is an incredibly effective tool and CampaignHQ is an award winning company who will deliver your message.
