I hear you, Aaron. This isn't easy. You'll never generate the money to, say, blanket the airwaves with TV commercials. But the tools exist to marshal enough money to develop a targeted, coordinated strategy. The real key, in my mind, is developing the strategy and having the discipline to implement it. There are ways to overcome a funding disadvantage - I work on successful campaigns that get outspent all the time. But you can't do it for zero dollars.

And I'm open to other suggestions.
