Power Circle

Call time

How do I motivate a cranky tired candidate ?

  • Be energetic, positive and enthusiastic

  • Set a STRICT schedule

  • Everyone knows the daily goal

  • Create a pleasant atmosphere


  • Bundlers, Fundraisers

  • House Party

  • PACS

  • Segment the Donors for Re-solicitation

  • Email, Web

  • Events (suck)

Re-solicit entire data base 3 times in the cycle by snail mail

The bulk of your total budget is raised through call time

House party systems can work if well organized

At this point in most campaigns, you will do one or two events

Template for Fundraising


You must build a base!

Don’t Rely on it!

The “open rate” for emails goes DOWN as the campaign progresses

Average online contribution is less than $50

Using the Web

  • Be relentless about adding email addresses

  • Make sure the Web site for your campaign is included in every piece of material.


  • Not PANIC- but creating a sense that time is running out and EVERYONE needs to help.

  • Creating a culture in the campaign

  • Holding call time sacred and patting the candidate on the back for doing it.

Collect, Re-solicit, collect

  • The person most likely to give you money is the person who already has.

  • Some %, of the money pledged will never come but chased correctly, most of it will be delivered

  • Entire donor base re-solicited.
