Campaigns We Love

Spitfire is now on Pinterest, creating a hub for campaigns we love! Looking for ideas on how to frame your issue? In need of that next “A-Ha!” idea that helps you on a new path to victory? These are the boards for you.  

We have two different boards to help you find the right ideas.  

  • Advocacy campaigns, which focus on getting people behind an issue, such as immigration reform or LGBT rights.
  • Behavior change campaigns, which encourage folks to take action in their daily lives – e.g., recycle, stop smoking, eat healthy, and so on.

Both of these boards are also really great places to find inspiration for winning infographics.
Once you’ve had your eureka moment, be sure to also check out Spitfire’s Planning to Win campaign planning tool. It’s free to use, and a sure-fire way to get you to a rock solid campaign plan in six steps!

“This has been a tremendous eye opener. It shows us how to pull the aspects of communications skills, from the message, to the audience. It forced us to identify our strengths and our weaknesses in an effort to become more strategic in how we prepare our messages and communicate them.”
