If you are interested in running for office there are ways to do it and do it for less. There is no secret that at all levels of office there is no cap on the amount of money you can spend on an election. If you are interested in running you might not have as much money as your opponent. This doesn’t mean that you are at a disadvantage. All it means is that you will have to work a little bit harder. And of course you will have to work a little bit harder.
The first thing you need to do is eliminate the fat from your payroll. You can’t afford to staff anyone unless you can guarantee that they will win you the election. You can’t so don’t worry about it. Do yourself a favor and get everyone working on a volunteer level. Have the person you know that knows the most about elections to help you and act as your campaign manager. You can usually get them to spear head things by offering a compensation if you win.
Make sure to use social media as a way of getting people to vote for you. Don’t be stupid and ignore the power of things like facebook and twitter. It’s a great way to reach a captive audience. A lot of what you do in the election will be about name recognition.
Don’t waste your time on any television commercials. If you are fortunate enough to have the money for a commercial the chances are they won’t be aired in prime time. You are better off doubling up on the posters. You need to focus your attention on hitting the people door to door. These things won’t cost you much more than time. Money won’t always win a local election. Brain power will.
