Muster Monthly Update - March 2021

By Corey Vaughn on March 5, 2021 at 3:32 PM

February was a doozy! We saw incredible usage of our platform at the local, state, and federal levels. From products to data, we're making progress on all fronts. Read on to see how we're making progress.

Product Updates

Our team continues development work on "Muster 2.0," and we've carefully begun beta testing with select customers. This has provided valuable feedback to the development team and immediate business impact for these customers.

The CRM tool by itself has allowed one customer to build a nationwide, hyper-local advocacy campaign. They're segmenting advocates down to and across municipal districts in conjunction with custom business attributes. This means they know exactly who to activate for each step in their campaign and gives them the ability to identify super advocates within their network.

On top of great progress on our new CRM — our new advocacy and marketing platforms are coming together nicely, which you'll hear more about soon!

Data Updates

Our data team has been doing a fantastic job cultivating and expanding our local dataset to improve targeting and segmenting capabilities for customers. With this local-level data and the Muster CRM's subsequent release, users will have the hyper-local targeting for creating supporter lists and advocacy campaigns.

Wrapping Up

We're excited about rolling out Muster 2.0 in full. Thus far, the CRM beta has been a resounding success and is the first pivotal step to releasing our new platform, and we can't wait to get it to everyone.

Is my organization allowed to lobby? Rules for 501c (3) and 501c (6)

By Cleo Dan on August 26, 2015 at 1:12 AM

Often, we’ll receive emails from staff at 501c (3) organizations stating that because of their IRS classification, they cannot and do not engage in any advocacy. This is a misperception. Be advoca-savvy (ok, so this word doesn’t quite work…but you get the idea! Be savvy about advocacy and you won’t run into IRS tax dilemmas).
