Loren Merchan is Partner and President at Authentic, a digital consulting and fundraising company working with Democratic and Progressive campaigns. Loren emphasizes the need for buy-in from campaigns and committees that digital is an important persuasion investment and not just an extension of traditional media.  We talk about:

  • Why digital experts need to run the digital persuasion program rather than leaving it to traditional consultants who are buying television
  • Who might be most persuadable using digital tools
  • Recognition of new media habits and reaching chord cutters
  • Unique things digital can do to engage and persuade voters rather than just talking at them
  • Value of contrast messaging
  • Reaching voters with accurate information through ads
  • Running smart GOTV programs
