Whether your community of supporters is 500 or 500,000 strong, email remains the most powerful channel at your disposal to inform and engage your base. Done right, it can deliver a powerful message for your candidate or cause, raise huge sums of money, and mobilize hundreds or thousands of volunteers at low cost. Done wrong, it annoys your supporters, breeds negativity and breaks trust—or just goes to spam folders and is ignored. I’ll share lessons learned—about list growth, deliverability, effective messaging, testing, fundraising and more—from more than 16 years experience managing email programs for CREDO, Bernie 2016, NextGen, Vote.org and the Mozilla Foundation.
