District 93 representative hopes to expand reach to new and current constituents

JUNE 02, 2013 BETTENDORF, IA - In an effort to expand her reach and connect with voters using social media, three-term Iowa State Representative Phyllis Thede (D) has partnered with Internet Marketing Professionals Group (I.M. Pros) to launch her campaign's Digital Marketing Initiative (DMI). “In my five years as an Iowa State Representative, I've seen firsthand how technology and social media have changed the way voters access information. This is an effort to use new technology and social media to reach out to my constituents in new and exciting ways.”

Robert Jackson Jr., president of I.M. Pros (improsgroup.com), echos this sentiment. “We're excited to work with Phyllis because she is one of a handful of enterprising politicians who recognize we're living in a new reality. Web 2.0 sites, the effective use of Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, and creating YouTube channels are ways we can more effectively reach voters where they live. By having these social media properties work in concert with each other we can create a powerful marketing vehicle that will sustain her message.”
