Engage and change the world. That’s Salsa’s vision for social good organizations and the reason we get so excited when they execute successful advocacy campaigns using our software. In this article, we’re taking a closer look at a few of the early planning stages in any advocacy campaign - identifying the target who can bring about the change you desire and the people who influence that target. This is called “mapping your advocacy campaign” because we are developing a visual map of the people who will help us and how they relate to one another.
It’s not enough that we go directly to the target and lay out our case. Sometimes the person we need to convince isn’t going to listen to just one singular voice. We need to point our advocacy at the people who influence our target too. Their voices will lend credibility to our campaign because they are trusted friends and colleagues of our target and their opinions matter.
Remember, you can download the advocacy campaign planning worksheets in the appendix of Salsa’s Complete Guide to Digital Nonprofit Advocacy Campaigns and follow along with this post while you create your own advocacy campaign maps.
