The Mobilisation Lab is a global learning and collaboration network to equip progressive movements and leaders to adapt and thrive in the digital, people-powered era. A key aspect of that work is improving the way all of us in the social change world plan and implement campaigns so that those campaigns are much better grounded in the needs and motivations of the people we’re trying to inspire to take action.
Here are three ways we encourage folks planning campaigns to gather feedback throughout the campaign:
- Use Audience Insights to Ground Your Campaign
- Prototype Your Ideas as Early And Often as Possible
- Constant adaptation throughout
The first step listed here — audience insights — was absolutely vital. The campaign team knew that tech workers were important, but viewed them as very different and foreign from themselves.
