Friday, July 15th, 2016
11:15 AM - 12:30 PM: Breakout 6
"Maam, can I have a moment of your time?"

For large mass marketing programs those few words and the conversation that hopefully follows might be the only direct human point of contact that a constituent ever has with your organization. Canvassing is a long-term investment that can pay off with increased brand awareness, expanded constituencies, and increased unrestricted revenue. However, developing, deploying, and managing a canvass program is a lot of work. In this panel discussion we will explore the metrics behind successful canvassing, the regional differences and scalability of those metrics, pitfalls to avoid in budgeting and forecasting, how the use of relatively new mobile canvassing technology can not only be an insurance policy for success but also increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your overall effort, and the pros and cons of outsourcing or internally managing your organizations' canvass program.
