Stop spinning out, start mobilizing

The tempo of political engagement quickens during an election year. For many, this time signals a period of strategic planning, mobilization, and communication. Yet, amidst the flurry of activity, there’s a crucial reminder: if you haven’t already embarked on your planning journey, now is your moment.

In the frenetic world of political campaigns and advertising, timing is everything. Stop spinning out encapsulates the remedy: anchor your org in a structured communications strategy. The frantic rush of September and October can be averted by starting early.

In recent years, Meta has enforced a restriction period for US-based ads on social issues, elections, or politics. Specifically, from November 1 to November 8, Meta will not accept new ads in these categories. Only pre-approved ads with at least one impression before November 1 can run during this time, with limitations allowing adjustments to bids, budgets, and schedules but prohibiting edits to creative content, targeting, objectives, or disclaimers, and copying or boosting existing ads. This year make sure to plan ahead to account for ANY social issues, elections, or political ads on Meta.
