Ian Patrick Hines

Ian Patrick Hines is the founder and CEO of Hines Digitalan award winning, internationally renowned, conservative digital agency that’s out to beat the left at their own game by out-hustling, out-organizing, and out-fundraising them.

From November 2012 – November 2013, Ian was a NationBuilder Tech Organizer, during which time he became one of the world’s foremost NationBuilder experts. He’s now helping campaigns and organizations get the most out of their nations as a certified NationBuilder Expert & Architect.

Prior to joining NationBuilder, he spent nine years in Maryland politics where he served in nearly every role from field organizer to communications director. In 2003, when online organizing was new and unproven, he managed the GenDean Blog — at just 17-years old — and his 2010 article on the potential impact of Square on political fundraising was featured on The New York Times' Bits Blog.

A fourth-generation Marylander, he currently lives in Severna Park, Maryland with his wife Christy and their three children: Oliver, Moira and Henry.

No, Josh. Aware already uses {{ site.full_url }}, so it’s not an issue there.

commented on Header and footer images in blast email template and auto-response emails
Glen — If you would like to offer your subscribers the option to view your message in the browser, it’s possible to create a webpage version of your content and manually link to it in your email blast. This does not, however, happen automatically.

commented on Unable to Setup Memberships??
Glen — Thanks for the suggestion. NationBuilder has a number of different add-ons (Volunteer, Donor, Membership, etc.). The best way to learn more about them, and to get them activated, is to contact your Point Person.
