With Grasshop, the process of communicating with our members and launching grassroots advocacy campaigns is much simpler
Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 20, 2011
Grasshop today launched its web-based grassroots advocacy and communications platform designed to bring effective engagement tools to associations, member organizations and issue advocates. The solution addresses three challenges facing grassroots organizations and online activists: Advocacy technology is expensive, difficult to use and it’s not very social.
Grasshop.com makes it simple for associations and activists to communicate with their supporters and get them engaged in advocacy campaigns. The Grasshop platform focuses on two primary areas: Grassroots advocacy and stakeholder communications.
Grasshop enables organizations to launch and track grassroots advocacy campaigns at the federal, state or local level in minutes. Email and social media channels are used to get calls-to-action to supporters and their networks. Grasshop matches supporters to their elected officials and delivers their messages while you track your success.
Organizations can use a mix of email and social media channels to reach all members and supporters and target communications by state, city or district. Grasshop facilitates the development of a social media community of passionate supporters and provide tools for them to share your content and campaigns.
“Traditional advocacy technology previously meant having big budgets and experienced staff, effectively keeping it out of reach of most organizations,” said Andrew Wright, Co-founder and CEO of Grasshop. “How people use the Web has changed significantly, but advocacy technology hasn’t changed with it. With Grasshop, a robust grassroots advocacy solution is now available to everybody, so having authentic stakeholders who care about your issues is the only ingredient necessary to getting your voices heard.”
“With Grasshop, the process of communicating with our members and launching grassroots advocacy campaigns is much simpler,” said Susan Connors, President and CEO of the Brain Injury Association of America. “And the accessibility of Grasshop makes it easier for our state affiliates to get on board.”
Grasshop is free for organizations and individuals to use. An upgrade to Grasshop Pro brings organizations the ability to house their full email list of supporters and access advanced analytics and data options.
Grasshop (previously in beta as Grasshopr) is a web-based grassroots community building and grassroots advocacy platform for organizations and individuals.
