Ray Kingman, CEO and Founder of Semcasting, emphasizes the need to use an issue-based approach to reach and motivate voters instead of using traditional voter segmentation to categorize those likely to vote. Rapid response to current events is a key opportunity for candidates and advocates to express their views on issues and provide accurate information in targeted digital campaigns. 

Ray and I talk about:

  • How issue-based audiences differ from those defined by voter files and related demographic data
  • Identifying issue-based voters
  • Issues driving the conversation with voters in 2024
  • Message testing and measurement in a thematic or issue-based digital campaign
  • Targeting tools and digital channels to drive fundraising and persuasion
