The 10-Minute Library Advocate #31: Remember to take a Selfie

Advocacy needs to leave a trace.

If you want to be able to build a relationship, it’s important to show what you have already done, and achieved.

Having evidence that you’ve met a politician or other target makes it easier to follow up.

And it’s great to have when talking about your advocacy to your colleagues and friends!

So for our 31st 10-Minute Library Advocacy exercise, when you meet with a politician or other decision-maker, remember to take a selfie!

Of course, depending on the person you’re talking to, a traditional photo will also be good!

And it’s a great way of creating a sense of complicity, and even a sense of fun, as long as the person you are meeting seems likely to accept.

Normally, people in power like having photos taken of them at work.

You can also share it with the person you have met – they might want to be able to show they are meeting with stakeholders too.

Good luck!
