With the Alberta Liberals leaving their debt in the dust (their last event in Calgary a week ago, a $250/ticket dinner attended by more than 500 people, and other events like it in Lethbridge, Edmonton, et al) they’re starting to hit back at Stelmach and the other conservatives in the province. Seeing that the Liberals are still cash strapped the option of using web ads, and using low cost techniques in a low cost medium, seems the like best method to talk to Albertans.
Taking a step back, the more than the Liberals use the internet and its resources the more people it will get a hold of to listen to them. It’s just a natural piece of social media wisdom–the longer something is around, and is updated, the more grass roots attention it will receive. A couple ads from now and a few more months this web-based advertising might just begin to take root in the province and begin to get headway into a conservative-leaning media that so dominates Alberta.
Circumvent the reporter and hit directly at the voters that politicians need to talk to… and cheaply, too, which will help rocket the Liberals in Alberta back into financial shape and help set them up for a stronger campaign later on. Alberta politics are about to take a more interesting turn.
If you like the A-Team and like to watch Alta. politics, you’ll love this.
I really have to thank Dave Cournoyer for posting this. It’s so apt, too. “Nobody messes with Ms. D” finishing subtitle still causes me to chuckle, especially with her accompanying picture.
