The Fall 2015 Master Class Series

Tyee Master Classes 2015 Proudly Presents Running and Winning Campaigns with NationBuilder with Josh Stuart and Stefan Avlijas

Just showing up online with a Twitter and an Instagram account doesn’t count as a digital strategy. Modern online campaigns require finesse, and a thoughtfully laid out plan for engaging with folks online. Whether you’re a non-profit working to raise the profile of an issue or you’re a new candidate for local office: NationBuilder gives you the tools you need to set you apart from the herd when it comes to turning an online presence into real world wins.

But: “how?” you may ask, or perhaps “can I really do it all by myself”? The good news is you can do it, and you don’t even need to be an IT wizard to get the job done. Join cStreet Campaigns for a deep dive into what decides if an online campaign blows up the internet, or tanks entirely. You’ll come out the other side with a firm grasp of what it actually takes to take a campaign from the drawing board to the front page of the newspaper, and the tech skills to back it up too.
