Visibility, Branding & Politics All Complement Each Other

If you want to renew your old agent-client relationships, work on a political campaign. It’s a task that requires networking and renewal of past relationships, with the emphasis on required.

For the past several weeks, I’ve been deeply involved in a local political campaign for Town Council for a past client of mine. This has been evolving since August, and I just realized Brian was running. I notice one sign on a main street!! I jumped in at the tail end and am now focused on his campaign. He had no one helping him.

 Facebook has been a prime source for marketing Brian Chandler. I’ve created ads and posted two of them thus far. There are 4 more prepared and ready to post, but I need to let the first two reap as many likes, comments and shares as possible. They are still coming in!!! The election is Nov. 5th.

I’ve personally benefited greatly from the past several weeks with approximately 40 more Franklin residents posting Friend Requests on my page. That’s to my advantage now and in the future.  At this point, I have at least 4,450 friends on Facebook and climbing!

Branding takes time, and the Town Council position has a 2 year term.  Brian feels very confident that he’ll win. We have over 100 signs on heavily travelled locations, and I made many contacts with past clients asking for permission to plant a sign. I’d say we have more visibility than any other candidate.

The local newspaper will hit the mailboxes several days before the election, and I’ve paid for a quarter page ad. Visibility, Visibility, Visibility.

The final task will be at the Polls and holding a “Vote for Brian Chandler” sign for hours….waving to everyone I know…. and asking for their votes.

I love this stuff…..

I can imagine that working on a political campaign would be a great networking opportunity, Barbara.  Right now, I'm so disgusted with politics, especially at the national level, that I would probably have to take a stomach medication to endure working on a campaign.  Yet, I know it is important for us to all be involved!

I have not gotten involved in local politics in quite some time. Seemed like they were all on the take. That being said, it is an amazing branding job they do in such a short time!!!

we've made good progress with that just by my asking people I know if I could put a sign there.... they responded that they don't know him but if I'm asking, he must be honest and ethical.... HE IS....and we have more signs up than any one.

While not everyone may choose politics, I agree that community activism is a great excuse to renew your old agent-client relationships.
