Teddy Goff, who was the head of digital strategy in President Obama’s reelection campaign, revolutionized the landscape of modern political campaigns. He led a 250-member team across the country, handling everything from paid advertising to social media engagement. His innovative strategies helped raise $690 million for the Obama campaign and facilitated over a million citizens to register to vote online.

Goff’s methods not only helped raise funds but also tapped into the power of the online community of voters. Through his approach, a strong base of dedicated volunteers and donors was built, along with the largest Facebook and Twitter following at that time. His strategy involved using data analytics to reach out to potential voters, allowing for personalized messages.
