In the last years in politics, we have realized the power of targeting. Big data, small data…just data in general has made our job at fundraising, persuasion and GOTV a little easier, more efficient. However, if people don’t pay attention to what you are showing them, it doesn’t matter how many times it shows up on their Facebook feed, or follows them around the Internet. So it’s time to think about the creative, not only what it says, but where it will be placed. An online ad needs to be made differently than a TV ad. Join this panel of experts as they dig into the creative elements of some of today’s best performing ads and take a look at what’s grabbing voters’ attention—and what isn’t.
Speakers: Kelly Gibson, Hamburger Gibson Creative; Ashley O’Connor, Strategic Partners & Media; Emily Williams, Global Strategy Group
