5ivepoints is a mobile application that helps campaigns and advocacy groups transform virtual enthusiasm into real world action by “gamifying” real elections.
Available as a free app to the user, volunteers can complete “missions” ranging from social media sharing to door knocking and phone calls using their own smartphone or tablet. Users of the app earn points and badges as they make a meaningful impact on behalf of their cause, competing for top spots on the campaign’s leaderboard.
Founded in 2011, 5ivepoints revolutionizes the way Americans across the ideological spectrum campaign for candidates, issues and causes. Campaign managers can now benefit from real-time analysis as to the activity of their supporters; allowing them to maximize the number of volunteers on their campaign, manage their network more efficiently, and measure the results in real time.
Our board of advisers includes Ed Gillespie, former head of the RNC; Andy Stern, former head of the Service Employees International Union; Ari Wallach, who helped design the Barack Obama advocacy group, the Great Schlep; Republican Party pollster John Mcglaughlin; Christian conservative activist Jerri Thompson; and Howard Dean campaign manager Joe Trippi.
