Lobbying software: organising support to influence law makers
Software for Grassroots Lobbying
There are times when citizens need to take collective action in order to influence the votes of representatives at every level of government. One way that interest groups can work together today is via our online presence.
Do Gooder is lobbying software that was built for campaign managers and grassroots lobbyists. Our software empowers your online lobbying activities such as petition building, emailing your government representatives or even lobby corporations to change bad practices using tools that integrate with your websites and your social media.
If you are targeting a national issue, Do Gooder can match your supporters with their local representatives. For example, for US users, our embeddable online email forms can find congressional representatives to email, according to your supporter’s zip code.
What kind of software tools help with lobbying?
Lobby local reps based on address or postcode
Do Gooder enables you to connect your supporters with their local representatives. With our geocoded political database (updated weekly), your supporters can email or phone local politicians at State/Provincial and Federal level in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K.
Setup an Online Petition
Sometimes the best action is the simplest. Petitions have been the bedrock of online campaigning for 20 years and we’ve refined ours to be flexible, effective and fast to fill. Output your petition as a CSV or export a map showing your support to decision makers.
Run a survey among a group of your supporters
When you need to grab information from your supporters quickly, the Do Gooder Survey Action tool is a great way to start. Engage with your supporters to collect the important data that they need you to know, so when it’s time to start lobbying, you will have the information you need from the people you are advocating for.
