here’s recently been an explosion of technology built to meet the needs of political campaigns. From door knocking to texting to digital ads to voter registration, there’s likely an app or software product that will help your campaign to save time, effort, and money.
Before we get to the free options, let me put in a plug for Victory Guide, the best-in-class option for managing your campaign’s field operations. Victory Guide eliminates the need to cut turf, make call sheets, or manually organize your voter contacts and data. Campaigns that use Victory Guide, save hours and hours of time—time that can be better spent talking to voters.
In addition to technology specific to campaigns, there are many great free tech tools available to help you. In this blog post, we explore a few.
MailChimp allows you to easily design beautiful email blasts and newsletters without being a graphic designer. It’s free if you have less than 2,000 subscribers.
Yet Another Mail Merge is a great way to send personalized emails in bulk directly from your Gmail account. It lets you easily set up a mail merge to customize the recipients name, organization, donation amount, etc. You can send up to 50 emails a day for free.
