First, I just arrived in El Paso, Texas where I’ll be joining Chris Godbey tomorrow as a guest instructor for the Leadership Institute’s “Texas Campaign School” here. Will be teaching general communications, dealing with the media and fundraising.
Looking forward to hanging out with fellow conservatives who are interested in learning how to WIN!
I attended my first LI training seminar as a student over 23 years ago – and have been a volunteer instructor off-and-on for this great organization since. They are simply the BEST. Great training. Great people.
And they conduct their schools all over the country. For more information, click here.
Secondly, a lot of people have written asking how to access last night’s Campaign Boot Camp workshop in Las Vegas on “How to Give Speeches that Don’t Suck.” Unfortunately, that’s a brand-new presentation and was only available “live” last night.
After the workshop I realized there was enough great material to warrant converting it into a new book. So stayed tuned. I just need to find time to write it up.
Now, the favor…
I know the campaign season “officially” begins after Labor Day. However, with this week’s Democrat presidential debates/clown shows it’s clear the horses are already out of the gate and the game is on.
As such, I’m going to start ramping up the Campaign Doctor emails more regularly right after Independence Day.
SIDENOTE from the Department of Words Mean Stuff: When you’re talking to conservative audiences, the actual name for the holiday is “Independence Day,” not “Fourth of July.”
That said, I’m writing today asking you to help me help you.
My #1 objective here at the Campaign Doctor is to make your campaign more effective and less stressful by helping you get more votes, more money, more volunteers and more media coverage.
So, would you please tell me what you like, what you don’t like and what you want more of.
For example, if there are specific areas of interest or concern when it comes to Communications and Fundraising – such as “press releases,” “fundraising evets,” etc. – let me know and I’ll try to put out more information on those topics.
Also, let me know if there are areas of interest or concern outside of communications and fundraising. If it’s not an area of my expertise, odds are I can find someone who IS an expert to help us out.
Email your suggestions to email@example.com
Finally, a reminder to Winners Circle members…
As part of your membership, you’re entitled to my monthly “Call-In Day” where you can call me on my cell phone and ask any questions or talk about anything on your mind that’s campaign-related.
Why do I do this for you?
Because even though I have a pretty good idea of what campaigns and candidates are looking for that will give them a competitive edge against their opponent(s), there are always specific challenges facing specific campaigns in specific races in different parts of the country.
“Call-In Day” is there for members to drill down on your particular problem or challenge and brainstorm possible solutions with me.
The next “Call-In Day” will be on Thursday, July 18. Mark it on your calendar.
Now, if you’re not a Winners Circle member yet, take advantage of our special $1 trial offer – including a FREE copy of my new book, “Campaign Fundraising for Beginners.” For more information…
And PLEASE, send me your feedback.
I’ll take it from there!
