What You’ll Learn
- How to target voters by voter history, demographic data, and geography
- Identify specific groups of voters to comprise your Persuasion universe
- Determine the strategies to reach your targeted voters
If your campaign will not be using VoteBuilder, this is the targeting course you need. But if the campaign will be using the VoteBuilder software, take “VoteBuilder 101” instead.
Why This is Important
Most campaigns don’t have the time, money, or people to talk to every single eligible voter, nor is this a good use of those resources. This course helps determine which voters a campaign should communicate with and the best strategies to reach them to be efficient and effective with resources.
