Today, your campaign cannot afford to be left offline.Communication is critical to a winning campaign. Whether you are an incumbent seeking reelection to a long-held office or a new comer making your first run at an open seat, campaigns in 2010 and beyond now rely heavily on the Internet as a key communication tool.
The era of Internet campaigning was born in 2004, when Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean raised in excess of $34 million from online fundraising activities. In current election cycle, candidates are relying heavily on Internet-based communication techniques not only to set new fundraising records (Obama raised over $70 million in January-February 2008 alone), but also as a cost effective means to advertise.With computers now exceeding the number of televisions in the American household, Internet-based advertising enables the candidate to reach directly into each voter’s home. Candidates from across the political spectrum are now bypassing traditional media to communicate with voters in a virtual one on one basis, through blogs, podcasts, Onsite Videos, and other innovative online communication techniques.
