Another thing that’s important is getting the votes. There are a lot of professional organizations and individual types of groups that can help in getting you votes. Maybe know a friend who’s a realtor. Maybe you know someone in the League of Women Voters. Looking through your current friend base, your family base, and identifying friends within these different groups that play in politics that can help advocate for you would be beneficial to the candidate. There are many non-profit organizations and professional organizations that get engaged in politics. Knowing someone in these groups or reaching out to these groups can help in reaching voters.
Endorsements are also beneficial to the candidate. For example, getting an endorsement from the Houston Association of Realtors. That’s over twenty thousand individuals and members that are communicated to to support you.
Looking to your friends, figuring out what your friends’ professions are, what your family members professions are, what types of organizations they’re a part of, what type of organizations you’re a part of and starting to spread your message and really articulate your campaign through those channels really will help in the long run. You’ll end up bringing groups and blocks of voters with you.
If somebody takes their time and gives up their freedom to come to your doorstep to articulate what their vision is, you’d probably give them a good five minutes or so to let them to that. Those are all very important things when going through this process.
