Online Engagement Platform

"Barack Obama won the presidency in a landslide victory ... by converting everyday people into engaged and empowered volunteers, donors and advocates through social networks, e-mail advocacy, text messaging and online video. The campaign's proclivity to online advocacy is a major reason for his victory."
Monte Lutz, SVP-Digital Public Affairs, Edelman

Are you where the conversations are?

Public conversations now increasingly happen online. In contrast to traditional public conversations, online conversations are easy to tap into. You can be where the conversation happens and you can listen to the pulse and influence it. It is more efficient than one-on-one conversation. Don't lose touch by not being involved.

Are you making social networks work for you?

The youngest segment of voters, the 18 to 25 year olds, rely on the Internet, and in particular the social media networks (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) as their primary source of information. In Obama's campaign the use of these networks boosted the turnout of this segment by around 50% and elevated Obama's popular vote for this section of the constituency to around 75%.

The Results:

"One of the concerns often expressed when considering video amongst a range of Web 2.0 strategies is the perceived complexities of recording, posting and assessing the effectiveness. I was aware of the success other politicians were having with their video and You Tube channels but had always presumed the need for resources would put video beyond me. The good news is it is indeed possible!"
Senator Kate Lundy, customer of the Online Engagement Platform

The time that people spend on Senator Lundy's website has increased by 45% because of the videos. Clearly, visitors are finding the videos a valuable addition to her communication mix.
