Our apologies, but it is time for a little shameless self-promotion.

We’ve got a brand new Campaign Startup Package designed to help anyone running for office kick-off their campaign the right way.  It contains everything a candidate needs to build a campaign plan, raise money, find votes, craft a message and more.

When a candidate first decides to run for office, it can be tough to know where to start. There’s almost too much to do. If you do not have access to experienced staff or professional consultants, what are your options?

The Campaign Startup Package is the answer. These courses walk you through how to start, run and win your campaign. You can begin your race knowing exactly what you need to do to win.

What Is the Campaign Startup Package

A series of seven lessons, this package teaches you how to determine how many votes you need to win, how to raise money and even how to build your own campaign message.

Included in the lessons are plenty of downloads, templates, and examples for you to use immediately. These include field worksheets to determine your vote goal, an example finance plan with a contribution tracker, a campaign plan template and even a sample budget.

The following classes are part of this bundle. You are free to take them in any order you like, but we recommend the following:

  • Campaign Startup – You Campaign Plan
  • How to Build a Field Plan
  • Targeting Voters (Field Plan Part Two)
  • How to Raise Money
  • How to Build a Communications Plan
  • How to Make an Ask
  • How to Create Your Message

All of our lessons are video-centric and interactive. We know there is a lot to do and we want you to remember you are not alone. We’re here to help. We encourage questions, either in the discussion boards, or, if you prefer, more privately through direct email. 

Of course, all of the trainings are available 24/7 and can be watched as many times as you like.

Who Should Use This Tool

Simply put, we believe anyone running for office should not be stuck trying to reinvent the wheel on their own. Anyone running for office, big or small, can use the Campaign Startup Package.

While we all have our own personal political views, GetElected is non-partisan. We want people to be engaged and more active in politics. Left, right, moderate, conservative or democrat. It doesn’t matter. If you want to learn how to run a professional political campaign, we’re here to help.

Why Use the Campaign StartUp Package

How do you know how to start your campaign right? There’s a science to everything that can be learned, but where?

In-person campaign trainings are great, but they are few and far between and many times they are only be available to those who are invited.

Experienced staff or professional consultants can get your race off to the right start, but if you don’t have thousand of dollars to spend to hire them, it doesn’t mean you should be out of luck.

Let’s be honest. This isn’t rocket science. There are some best practices in every profession. We can teach you those involved in running a political campaign. Anyone brave enough to run and serve in public office should have the chance to do it right.

Finally, we understand candidates have very little time and money. They need to use the limited amounts of each they do have wisely.

With this in mind, we created our lessons to be more than just theory. They are designed to be immediately applicable and available to anyone at a price most can afford.

At GetElected, we love campaigns and we’re committed to helping anyone who is willing to step forward and run learn how to do it right. That’s why we built this company and the Campaign Startup Package. We hope we see you soon.
