The beginning of the 2024 Minnesota Legislative session and our collaboration with organizations across the state have reminded us of the significant role digital advocacy plays. As more time is spent online and the world continues to evolve, digital advocacy has become an essential aspect of our work.

Here are a few key points to consider when incorporating digital advocacy into your next public affairs campaign:

Reach and Accessibility

Digital platforms provide organizations and coalitions with a vast audience, especially those who cannot be reached through traditional methods. With more people relying on digital channels for information, it is essential for issue-based campaigns to have a robust digital presence. These platforms offer targeted advertising, social media, and video content, which can help reach specific demographics. They also provide a two-way communication channel, allowing to engage with supporters and advocates directly. To summarize, digital platforms offer a unique opportunity for political campaigns to reach a broad audience, interact with voters in new ways, and achieve a significant impact with their messaging.

Targeting and Personalization

Digital platforms enable organizations to personalize messaging based on demographics, interests, and behaviors of specific voter groups. This approach can be more effective in mobilizing supporters. Personalized messaging helps us create a stronger emotional connection with the audience and deliver the message directly to them. Digital platforms also provide real-time feedback, allowing us to adjust their messaging strategy and optimize outreach. In brief, digital platforms have made it easier for organizations to connect with supporters at a personal level, making it a powerful tool for modern advocacy campaigns.

Engagement and Mobilization

Social media and other digital platforms facilitate direct engagement between organizations and supporters. Using these channels to mobilize supporters, organize events, and encourage supporter actions. Additionally, digital tools such as email campaigns, peer-to-peer texting, advocacy actions, and digital advertising can help organizations stay connected with supporters and keep them informed about essential developments.

Real-Time Feedback and Data Analysis

Digital advocacy is a powerful tool for us to gather feedback from voters through social media interactions, online surveys, and other digital channels. This feedback can help adjust messaging and strategies in real-time to better resonate with advocates and supporters. Moreover, digital platforms provide valuable data and analytics that can be used to track progress, measure the effectiveness of outreach efforts, and refine tactics accordingly.


Digital advocacy is a more cost-effective advertising approach compared to traditional forms like television and print media. This is because digital platforms offer cheaper advertising options, and campaigns can target their spending more accurately to reach a more relevant audience. This is especially useful for smaller campaigns or candidates with limited resources. It also allows us to pivot when our objectives change.

Counteracting Misinformation

In the digital age, misinformation and disinformation spread quickly online. Digital advocacy allows organizations to combat false narratives and misinformation by providing accurate information directly to advocates and engaging in online discussions to correct misinformation.

Overall, digital advocacy plays a crucial role in modern elections by expanding the reach of campaigns, enabling personalized communication with supporters and advocates, facilitating engagement and mobilization efforts, providing valuable data and feedback, offering cost-effective advertising options, and helping to counteract misinformation.
