Politics in any part of the world is now taken care of like the way a new business starts and then taken care. It requires motivation, long hours of work and the desire to get into people’s heart. Lets begin with the stratergies required step-by step
Technology: These days, technology is backbone in the modern world. So, by creating a website, tweeting and blogging you become a familiar face within your county and helps you getting popular
Campaign Staff: Every social organization needs three most important positions to be filled first. They are the treasurer, fund raiser and campaign manager. Even though the first treasurer can be a family member or a trusted friend, it’s better to hire a professional so that unnecessary legal difficulties can easily be taken care of. An experienced treasurer is a boon as he will also take care of the campaign’s financial accounting and filing legally required campaign statements along with the legal difficulties. The fundraiser’s job is to raise money needed for a successful campaign. The best person to do this job is the candidate or the spouse of the candidate. The campaign manager is more like a secretary to him. His job is to run the campaign and make sure that all the campaign problems are handled immediately
The Campaign Budget: Making sure that the candidate wins requires carefully formulated budget of votes. In short, the number of votes needed to win. For that, determining the right stratergy and message for the campaign is very important. These stratergies tie directly to the candidates personal beliefs. Many times, the candidates seek office due to strong beliefs on a single issue. These issues need to be communicated to the staff directly and have frank discussions about the same. Questions need to be raised by the staff. This ensures that a proper stratergy is formed
Running the campaign: Once the three mentioned above are in place, implementing the campaign should be very easy. Revisions and changes will have to be made looking at the circumstances, but operating the campaign will be smoother and easier
Besides these, the candidate also needs to be at par with the happenings in and around the campaign. Some of the topics they need to know about are
