And, of course, in an effort not to mention the sweater, you start talking about the latest awesome email from our campaign about our fight for working families. But Dave (Doug?) looks at you blankly. He must not be on our email list. How awkward.
But there’s a way to avoid the awkwardness: Invite everyone in your network to join our campaign.
Invite your friends and followers at work and in your community to join us. And when you run into Don (no, wait, it’s Dave), you’ll have something to talk about: fighting for the middle class.
Anything to avoid talking about that sweater.
P.S.: Additional holiday party conversation topic: Did you know that including an extra “ask” in the P.S. of an email greatly increases the number of people who will click through? It’s true. For example: Won’t you share our campaign for working famliies with your networks on Twitter and Facebook?
P.P.S.: It also works for fundraising: Won’t you contribute $5, $10, or even $20 to help us reach out to more supporters by clicking HERE?
