How to Break Through Online and Win Campaigns
Tyee Master Classes 2016 Proudly Presents How to Break Through Online and Win Campaigns with Karl Hardin

What will I learn?

A well oiled and humming digital engagement strategy can attract more followers to your cause, deepen your relationships with your supporters and donors and provide opportunities for people to come together and achieve amazing things together.

Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and workshop your campaign or issue, as digital strategist Karl Hardin walks you through digital campaigning in this intensive one-day Tyee Master Class. You’ll cover the basics, do a deep dive on strategy and get your hands dirty by workshopping your story and writing copy for e-mail and the web.

You’ll come away with a better appreciation of how storytelling can make people click things online and how that can be the first step towards a meaningful and impactful relationship. And how these relationships, at scale, can change the world.

Topics will include:

  • Goal setting for campaigns
  • Deep framing and message development
  • An overview of digital tools and platforms
  • Tactics for driving traffic and engagement with your campaign
  • Designing a ladder of engagement

Who’s it for?

  • Online campaigners
  • Advocacy organizations
  • Unions and union locals
  • Political campaigns
  • Candidates for nomination
  • Community organizers

What should I bring?

A laptop. An issue or campaign in mind that you’d like to work on.
