Membership Engagement Services (MES)
MES can help clients better engage with their electorate, communicate their message effectively and boost turnout. The products and services we offer include:
Creative Services — We can work with your organisation to redesign its election material (everything from ballot papers to election micro-sites) making it more eye-catching and interesting. This can help boost the number of people stepping forward to run as candidates and have a significant impact on voter turnout.
Data Integrity Checks — We can cleanse your data against the Royal Mail Postal Address File and run checks against the National Bereavement Register, providing you with accurate and up-to-date data. These checks can help save you money and avoid any potential embarrassment.
Voter Profiling — Whilst maintaining anonymity, we can identify and assess groups within your organisation who are not voting. This enables you to target your communication and engagement strategies more effectively in preparation for your next election.
Candidate Training — We can help train candidates both prior to and following elections. Candidates may need clarification on what will be expected of them if they are elected and may need advice on writing a manifesto or biography. Following the election, candidates may require training on how to communicate and influence the body to which they have been elected.
Research — we can assist your organisation with all of its research needs, using a variety of different methods, e.g. face-to-face interviews and focus groups, postal surveys, email surveys, telephone surveys and text (SMS) surveys. We can also provide kiosks, handheld devices and tablets to assist you in your gathering of data.
