The unprecedented influence of digital outreach from the 2020 election will shape campaigns and politics for many years to come.

The Digital Campaign School -- presented by The Prosper Group and Leadership Institute -- examines digital efforts in the 2020 election and teaches you the tools you need to execute winning digital plans for campaigns and causes of your choice.
 In this intensive, 10-hour training, you'll gain experience with the entire technology, marketing, and strategy stack of modern campaigns and political organizations.
 22 experienced digital professionals from 16 organizations will provide practical tips, step-by-step instructions, and valuable, how-to information that only comes from personal experience.
 You'll learn how to:

  • build a "growth engine" -- using conversion funnels, automation, and A/B testing -- so your digital presence is powering your goals;
  • develop a successful online fundraising program, from payment processing to list management to copywriting best practices;
  • manage the technical infrastructure of a website, from selecting a host to managing DNS and MX records; and
  • implement a powerful content marketing strategy that integrates social media, email, and advertising for maximum results.

 Regardless of the level of your experience, learn the experts' secrets of an effective digital strategy from announcement to Election Day.

 Ideal attendees are campaign staff, candidates, volunteers, activists, and anyone interested in impacting public policy. This on-demand training uses recordings from the live Digital Campaign School | 2020 Election Analysis hosted on January 14 & 15, 2021.
