Planning and running a political or social cause campaign is a challenging task, whether you’re working in politics, running a charitable campaign, or raising awareness of a local cause or event. Whatever you’re campaigning for, the iFlipTips app for iPhone and iPad can help.
iFlipTips is a personal organizer and study app that can help you make notes, organize your thoughts and share ideas with others. The app is divided into three sections: iFlipCards, iFlipSlides, and iTipsIdeas. IFlipCards are in a question and answer format, and function like test flashcards. IFlip-Slides allow you to create digital slides on your iPhone or iPad for help with studying, or as part of a presentation. Finally, iTips-Ideas cards are useful for making notes around a certain subject. All three types of flashcards can be organized into different folders using iFlipTips’ customizable storage system. This enables you to access your notes quickly and easily from your iDevice, whenever and wherever you might need them.
When using iFlipTips to help you plan and execute a campaign, the first step is to use the folders system to organize your notes. You can create different folders for different areas of the campaign, for example a folder for fundraising, a folder for key contacts, a folder for events, and a folder for targets. Alternatively, you can also use the folders as a personal organizer system and create a calendar for each week or month of the campaign. This way, each flashcard you create can also function as a task, so you can organize your to-do list, and keep track of which deadlines apply to which tasks too.
Each section of the app can be used in different ways for planning and running campaigns. iTips-Ideas are useful for capturing tasks and ideas associated with events or deadlines, and these fit well with the calendar folder system mentioned above. As well as using iTips-Ideas cards as a task list for yourself, iFlipTips’ sharing features also allow you to quickly and easily delegate tasks to others too.
Using iFlipTips, you can share iTips-Ideas cards and iFlip-Slides using Facebook, Twitter, or through email. iFlipTips is integrated with these third-party features, giving you a seamless sharing experience. Audio and video files can also be sent over social networks or email. Each message contains a link to any video and audio files, which are stored on the iFlipTips server, so don’t take up unnecessary space in the recipient’s inbox.
More and more, social media is becoming an important aspect of campaigning, and iFlipTips’ social sharing functions help you reach out to potential supporters or donators. Using the app, you can create a social media content calendar, and provide your followers with updates on your campaigning activities straight from the app.
Giving presentations, speeches or talks can be a nerve-wracking experience, but iFlipTips provides several tools to help you. iTips-Ideas cards is useful for creating notes that you can use in presentations or speeches. Accessible with only a few taps, these cards can boost your confidence levels and give you peace of mind that your memory won’t fail you during a crucial talk. iFlip-Slides are also a useful accessory for presentations or talks. Connecting your iPhone or iPad to a projector or television, you can use the slides to present information, images, video and audio clips to your audience, adding a professional sheen to your performance. Finally, iFlipCards can help you prepare for those important questions and answer sessions at the end of a speech. Using the app, you prepare stock answers to questions you’re likely to be asked in advance, leaving you prepared for whatever the audience might ask.
