- How do we get more members signed up to support party growth? We need to know what works. Social media, stalls, rallies, pub crawls, concerts, dinners.

Effective media releases, media spokespersons and a constant public presence. Connecting with celebrities. Systems for managing and building the party. State-of-the-art ways of connecting with members and the media.
- Promoting credibility of the party. How do we connect with the electorate to gain trust and win their votes? Who is our target audience? And what backgrounds and demographics of the electorate will gain us most votes? Identifying issues that could damage our partys image/goals. Gaining respect of other parties. Achieving leverage for preferences.
