Building a Better List
A technique forged to boost voter turnout in tight political campaigns is now pumping up grassroots lobbying efforts on major public policy fights over labor organizing, healthcare reform and climate change.
Until recently, microtargeting referred to the practice of leveraging the growing store of personal data to tailor campaign messages to specific segments of the population, from snowmobilers in Michigan to union members in Akron.
The practice first gained prominence during President Bush’s reelection campaign in 2004. President Obama’s campaign fine-tuned the technique to raise historic amounts of
money from online donors.
Veterans of Bush and Obama presidential campaigns are now driving the evolution of microtargeting as an advocacy tool.
