Let Campaign Fundraising Boot Camp™ help you raise more money!If you work as a professional in the political industry, you have watched your firm lose thousands in profit over the years because of candidates who perform poorly in their fundraising efforts.
The campaigns that are most likely to put a dent in your profit and loss statement are state, local, and first time congressional candidates.
Why? Because they are stuck in that strange, in-between campaign size. They are too small to hire any professional fundraising consultant worth their salt, but are too large to raise money efficiently or effectively on their own.
We developed the Campaign Fundraising Boot Camp™ program to solve that problem and help your firm increase its bottom line profitability numbers.
Our program is specifically designed to help clients like yours increase their overall fundraising productivity by taking a unique, comprehensive approach that combines powerful campaign fundraising software, multiple learning resources, and coaching provided via video-conference.
Four things that keep your clients from becoming excellent fundraisers and how our Campaign Fundraising Boot Camp™ program overcomes them all.
Step One: Evangelism Overcomes SkepticismMany of your clients simply don’t realize how important money is in winning elections and why it is so necessary to meet fundraising goals in order to fully execute the campaign plans you assemble for them.
We present the cold, hard facts to them and become a unified voice with yours that money matters in politics. Our program emphasizes the unique, undeniable advantages that are offered by having the financial resources necessary to communicate with voters, hire staff, and support an efficient level of overhead.
We present political fundraising as a necessary, disciplined aspect of campaigning with a level passion and perspective that simply can’t be duplicated.
Sometimes it's good to have someone else on your side.
Step Two: Education Overcomes IgnoranceYou might think ignorance is a strong word, but consider this question: How many of your clients have ever read a book, completed a workbook, watched a video series, listened to an audio series, or participated in a in-depth webinar or seminar on campaign fundraising? I'll bet the answer is very nearly zero percent.
If campaign fundraising is so critical to winning and your firm’s bottom line, why do so many of your clients lack any formal education on the subject? I believe this is one of the reasons why the majority of candidates hate fundraising – they have never been taught how to do it the right way. So, their time spent fundraising is often inefficient and ineffective.
Our learning resources in the Campaign Fundraising Boot Camp™ program present the art and science of fundraising in so many ways that your clients are bound to find a medium of learning that works for them.
Step Three: Equipping Overcomes DisorganizationThe state in which many candidates conduct their fundraising efforts can only be charitably referenced as an abhorrent mess. Excel sheets litter their computer desktop, unprocessed donation cards sit in stacks, and manila folders bulge with post-it notes and legal pads full of lists of potential prospects.
This kind of disorganization makes fundraising, an already disliked aspect of campaigning, even more likely to be pushed to the bottom of a candidate’s priority list. Additionally, fundraising without a software system that records contributions and expenditures makes filing disclosure statements a more difficult chore than it has to be.
Campaign Treasurer™, our campaign fundraising software system designed specifically for state, local, and first-time congressional candidates, provides an intuitive, affordable solution to help your clients organize their fundraising activities so their time spent communicating with donors is far more productive.
An organized campaign will always outraise as disorganized campaign and Campaign Treasurer™ is the perfect fit for small and mid-sized campaigns.
Step Four: Coaching Overcomes ConfusionConducting your campaign fundraising activities using best practices can be confusing to some candidates even after absorbing all the educational resources that the Campaign Fundraising Boot Camp™ program has to offer. Every campaign's situation is different and that's why we offer coaching opportunities to all subscribers.
A 30-minute orientation and screen sharing tour of the learning center and Campaign Treasurer™ software application is given to all subscribers to help them become familiarized with the digital resources available (this orientation session is conducted in-person for consultants enrolling more than 12 subscribers*). At this time, we help your clients import their contacts and answer any general questions they may have about fundraising.
As your candidates complete the Campaign Fundraising Boot Camp™ program, we conduct a one-hour video-conference coaching session via Skype to help candidates in any way they see fit. Often, our enrollees use this opportunity to clarify certain aspects presented in the program or to seek assistance with some particularly difficult process such as developing a personal narrative, budgeting, or penning a fundraising letter (depending on the number of subscribers enrolled per consultant this training is also often conducted in person*).
In ConclusionGiven your expertise in politics, I think you will agree that our Campaign Fundraising Boot Camp™ program for candidates, when conducted in conjunction with your current efforts, is the most unique and comprehensive process of its kind in the nation.
We would like to encourage you to take one of the actions below to further understand how our comprehensive approach to fundraising can help your candidates raise more money and increase your firm’s profitability as a result.
* In-person coaching sessions for candidates are determined on a case by case basis dependent upon the wishes of the firm and upon expense considerations related to travel – which we happily discuss and arrange to suit our clients’ needs.
