The Engagement Pyramid: Keeping supporters engaged for the long haul

With Reilly Yeo and Vojtech Sedlak of

Many organizations know how to get supporters in the door. But what do you do in order to keep them engaged, and make sure their actions lead to change? In this peer-learning session, we’ll contribute stories about how OpenMedia has effectively fought online surveillance and Internet censorship by going beyond petitions, bringing in other online and offline tactics to deepen supporters’ engagement. We’ll show you how we track engagement, our work to bridge supporters from one issue to another, and also share some of our ongoing challenges and pitfalls. Bring stories and questions and be prepared to share!
