CRISIS PROOFING Your Election 2020 COMMS Plan

While it is not possible to know what events will take place around Election Day, it is possible to know what conversations are emerging, which groups online are driving those narratives, detect where the landmines are for your comms and policy teams, and gauge the potential impact on customers, stakeholders, and brand.

Join us to review: 

  • What we learned from 2016, what is different in 2020, and why it matters for brands. 
  • Key questions to ask in order to uncover whether election-related online chatter has the potential to blow up and impact your brand or its operations.
  • How cross-functional brand and comms teams are using social intelligence to prepare and take action.
  • How to understand the groups online (and their agendas) who are driving emerging and top election-related narratives, including QAnon and Antivaxxers.

If you understand how ideas originate and take hold, you understand the groups and motivations behind those ideas.

Yonder leverages the AI of human psychology and network behaviors to detect online communities who organically come together around things they love or hate. These communities (we call them factions) are the force behind trends and news headlines. Through our network, image, and language analysis, brands can harness the potential of online influence.
