Who Needs Rap Index?
RAP Index® is designed by advocacy experts for one purpose: to deliver “authentic advocacy.” Our innovative software effectively allows you to uncover hidden relationships for a wide range of groups, associations, businesses, and organizations. RAP Index ensures that you get your critical message delivered to the right person in the most effective way.
The need for authentic advocacy is critical at the state level, no matter what the issue, or how niche-oriented it may be. RAP Index tool is ideal for state-focused groups and organizations that rely on local, highly concentrated influencers and policy makers. State associations operate in a more focused strategic network and it is critical to know, at any given time, exactly what types of individuals and interests exist within the state’s political backdrop. Locating and leveraging those relationships can be critical to success.
We understand the passion and commitment of non-profit groups—they believe strongly in their cause or service and are often at the mercy of policy makers. We also understand that non-profits typically don’t have the luxury of a large operating budget. RAP Index tool is a highly efficient and cost-effective tool that can strategically streamline your advocacy initiatives to identify influential supporters and potential donors.
National entities are often vast and scattered, both in terms of members and political interests. Whether you’re talking about a state or federal issue, these associations present a big pool of candidates from which to identify, engage, and mobilize. Regional staff can empower localized individuals and affiliates that can be targeted to determine advocacy assets. RAP Index makes it possible to uncover key relationships within any group, regardless of size, to move policy makers through authentic advocacy.
We live in a global economy in which corporations and large businesses must successfully navigate both national and international policy makers and influencers. RAP Index can locate and qualify those employees who have key relationships with specific elected officials and decision makers at various levels of the political food chain. By accurately locating hidden relationships in your own company, you can identify those personal connections with policy makers that lead to effective, authentic advocacy - as well as find potential new PAC supporters.
Colleges and universities are under more pressure than ever before to find key stakeholders and advocates who can engage alumni, expand their donor base, and reach out to state legislators about key educational policy issues. RAP Index can help you: uncover your most effective voices, reach legislators whose constituents are your alumni, tap into alumni that are serving on legislative staff, send the right alumnus to a key meeting with a legislator, and more.
