4 November 2017: Digital skills training in London

On Saturday 4 November, Conservative Progress held a digital campaigning masterclass in London for almost 100 Conservative council candidates, agents, association officers and activists.

Over the course of the afternoon, a team of expert digital campaigners ran a series of training sessions on how to harness the power of digital to win elections.

Sessions were run on a range of subjects including:

  • Targeting social media boosts and adverts

  • Creating impactful digital content

  • Filming effective vox-pops

  • Sharing your content and building your online network

  • Effective data collection and surveys

  • Using digital to turn out your voters

Activists left the training equipped with a range of skills needed to broadcast the Conservative message through new and innovative ways.

Digital campaigning is an area where Labour have stolen a march on us, and we hope that by running these sorts of training events, we can even the playing field.

Conservative Progress offers a range of digital campaigning support and advice to Conservative Associations in London and across the country. Please do get in touch with us on admin@conservativeprogress.co.uk to find out more about how we can help.
