In the world of politics, in between work, meetings and trying to stay across the issues, there's little time to step back and reflect on which advocacy strategies are working, and where they could be done better.
With many businesses and pollies beginning to slow down and before the summer holidays and Parliamentary recess, now is a good time to reassess and see exactly where technology can help make your job easier over the coming year.
Time to Take Stock
Having the breathing space to take a step back and look at exactly where and how technology can help in your organisation is rare.
With a bit of time, Advoc8 can help you take a broader look at the way your advocacy is operating and discuss different opportunities and strategies that software can open up.
If high-level decision makers are dragging their feet, with fewer projects getting off the ground they also have more time and a more charitable mood to mull over new systems.
Time to Roll Out
With less work in the pipeline to allow for school holidays and shut-down periods, end of year is ideal for putting new tech in place.
It provides leeway to update contact lists, import data and customise and tailor the platform to be just what you need to hit the ground running when the work ramps up again.
Time to Train
Like any new system, getting your whole team well-versed and on the same page is crucial. Putting technology in place now means that you can get the team in one place during a quieter period.
This means teams can learn the software together, communicate and work out how best to use it, while their regular workload is on the back-burner, rather than being thrown in and having to juggle new systems with work already on their plate.
Start Off the Year with a Bang
As more and more organisations are rolling out advocacy technology each year, it's important to stay one step ahead of the competition.
With 2020 just around the corner, it's high time to take a hi-tech approach to your advocacy.
