Our country is ailing.  That is the bad news.  The good news is that the remedy is so simple and attractive: a return to the principles our Founders taught us. Respect for the Constitution, the rule of law, individual liberty, sound money, and a noninterventionist foreign policy constitute the foundation of the Campaign for Liberty“. – From the campaign’s Statement of Principles

Idea & Objectives:

Campaign for Liberty

Campaign for Liberty

The Campaign for Liberty’s mission is to promote and defend the great American principles of individual liberty, constitutional government, sound money, free markets, and a noninterventionist foreign policy, by means of educational and political activity.

It is worth mentioning here that the Campaign for Liberty is the name of the actual organization carrying out this mission for liberty. This is quite interesting to me since it is the second organization’s name I come across which defines itself as a campaign. What I can deduce from this is that people are more likely to “follow” or “support” a certain organization or cause if its name entailed “campaign”, which shows virality, unity and a real goal.

Buzz Generated:

47,245 active and engaging people “Like” this on the campaign’s Facebook Fanpage, with comments reaching 125 per wall post!

As for the site’s Alexa ranking, all I can say is: Politics do really attract people and here’s why:

Lessons Learned:

I may or may not agree with the organization’s mission or its campaign goals, however, the truth of the matter is that: politics sells!

Therefore, if you have a cause you need to promote through social media, and based on this campaign and other cause-related campaigns I’ve written before, here are the lessons to learn:

  • Your campaign’s name has value – and your organization’s name too! If you have a cause-related organization it helps if you add “campaign” to it, it makes it feel more viral.
  • Political campaigns in specific, and cause-related campaigns in general, usually attract the target audience and are able to get support and even donations more than any other campaigns.
  • Adding a store to your campaign helps generate income to support your campaign goals and objectives.
  • Combining online presence and offline events is a great mix for success when your campaign objectives and audience are well defined.

Finally, what do you think of the organization and the campaign? Do you think there is actual room for making a real difference? Would you consider supporting or being a part of this campaign?

    restoring what constitution? that smells too much like the tea party . or maybe its just some smart person that is trying to capitalize on their coocooness. Either way social media has become a very influential battle ground for political views and given the fringe of politics some visibility
