Nine Tips for Using Data to Build Grassroots Energy Outreach Success
By Roger Smith, Clean Water Fund, for the New England Local Energy Network

Introduction

For outreach campaigns, staff and volunteer time are your most precious resource and it always feels like there are never enough hours.

The challenge is how to work smarter and make the best use of that time.

Data collection can often seem like a chore which competes for time with the outreach itself.

However, if integrated into the campaign, it can make the outreach more effective.

Good data can show you where you are and help you get to where you want to be.

Timely feedback provides an opportunity to refine your messages and methods. Most importantly, data can become a motivator for your team. It can help each person feel their time is being used wisely and also understand how their contribution is helping the overall effort.
