Welcome back! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ

Congratulations to everyone who survived Giving Tuesday! Have you taken a moment to celebrate? ๐Ÿฅณ

No, really? Have you celebrated the hard work you've put in this year to create positive change for people and planet? Most of us "forget" to celebrate after big efforts. I know I fall into this trap. Urgency culture convinces us to jump to the next thing.

But that is a road to burnout. So, I want to take a moment to celebrate you and all of your accomplishments this year! Crank up the volume if you're alone or pop in your headphones and take 3 minutes to shimmy, shake, and thank yourself. You're still here and doing the work and that's a big thing.

Today, we're touching on audience segmentation. Specifically, how macro research sources can be powerful insights for your organization and cause. Read on for more...

In corporate marketing, companies can hire global advertising agencies to research and know their target audience intimately. They invest in millions of dollars of research and analytics to know exactly why Sheryl wants to buy Charmin instead of Angel Soft. (I'm a โ€‹Who Gives a Crapโ€‹ fan, myself)

Non-profits, campaigns, and grassroots organizations simply don't have the funds for that kind of deep audience research. So where do you go for the macro insights that give your organization a picture of social trends and audience behavior?

Why not try research about Democrats? Understanding how this segment is feeling, thinking about issues, and how they're using technology and media, can give you a unique insight into people who are more likely to support progressive causes.

And scroll down to Getting to the Roots for more research.


And that's a wrap on this weekโ€™s newsletter! We hope you found this newsletter helpful in your work. If you have any topics you want covered or have any questions, please โ€‹reach outโ€‹ to let us know.

In Solidarity,
