Maybe you think 2016 is your year. The country is pissed off, Congress is broken, and there’s more money in politics than ever before. Yeah, maybe it is your year.
So what are you going to do? First you’ll probably talk it over with your family, then kick it around with some friends. Eventually you’ll sign those papers and file ‘em and then it’s off to the races.
If you’re like most people, you’ll announce your candidacy, send out some letters asking for money, and then…nothing. You’ll sit there, waiting, waiting until it’s closer to election day and you can campaign.
You need to be on social media, you need to have your candidate website attracting attention, you need to make people know who you are!
That’s what social media is for, and that’s what my latest book talks about. Social Media Politics: Using the Internet to Get Elected is a 194-page book with 11 chapters on everything from:
- A Basic History of Social Media;
- Setting up Your Social Accounts;
- Making Posts that Draw Attention;
- Figuring out How to Make People Care;
- Creating a Following;
- Identifying Your Opponent’s Strengths;
- Exploiting Your Opponent’s Weaknesses;
- Integrating Social with Regular Election Efforts;
- Making Mistakes and Moving Past Them;
- Using Google Analytics for Your Campaign Website;
- Manipulating the Media for Free Advertising.
You’ll get a lot more than that, but that’s the gist of it. Each chapter has several subheadings and you get real examples from the 2014 campaigns.
If you’re going to run for office, this book will give you ideas. It’s $4.99 and available on Amazon, being published to iTunes, and will be available in print format in a few days.
Stop wondering how to get elected and start making it happen today. Buy this book and make your election dreams come true.
