Storytelling with videos

Robin wanted to explain how Karickhoff's votes have hurt women and how she would be a better advocate for their rights. These are the points made in her one minute video:

  • District 30 State Representative Mike Karickhoff has demonstrated time and time again that he won’t support women’s reproductive health.
  • In July he voted for the total abortion ban in Indiana SB-1, with exceptions.
  • He clearly doesn’t know what those exceptions mean. He wasn’t even willing to vote to define rape…
  • Karickhoff is not concerned that a third of the state of Indiana has no OB/GYN care available to women.  
  • In 2011 he repealed Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood.
  • Karickhoff would rather see Indiana women suffer. 
  • Vote for Robin Williams as your new State Representative.
  • She will fight to preserve women’s constitutional  rights at the Indiana Statehouse.

Don't reveal your hand

Many people will tune out and not pay attention to ads from the other side. Robin used a simple approach using an ACTION BUTTON which shows both candidates and a QR Code that invites the viewer to decide who would be better - without revealing much else. A Way To Win video starts playing when the ad is clicked, or the QR Code is scanned. There is also a link to Robin William's campaign website.

Draw them into your ad first by not disclosing too much information but letting the reader decide for themsleves.

TakeAway: Republicans have a flood of dark money to spread their message across a broad network of billionaire owned media outlets. Grassroots groups have to do get their message out to more people with less money. That's where free apps can help.
