Since 1992, we have helped with many campaigns and have learned what works and what doesn't work. We know that with a campaign you don't have the time and money to mess around! With our marketing expertise, we can help make your campaign a bit easier since you don't have to worry about your printing vendor, web guy, social media person, the sign guy, and graphic designer because you can get it all done under one roof with us!!
We have a wide variety of techniques that help target and attract the right people with your message, so working up a quote on all of the ideas you have for your campaign is easy for us to do. Consider quantities for the whole stretch of the campaign. For example, if you are running for county council maybe 2,500 to 4,000 contribution envelopes would be about right, instead of ordering 500 at a time.
We will design your brand image for free. It is important that it is done right and done professionally, and worth it to have it in print-ready format. Shoot us an email with ideas, samples or stop on by for a discussion on what your thoughts are and we will get right on it for you!
All of our websites are a CMS (Content Management System), which means, you can make edits yourself (or your campaign manager), giving you full control of managing your site. We worked hard to create a template, that includes a contribution form, a blog option, photo galleries, video, calendars, and email. As an option, we can set up your campaign with a PayPal account and a public Facebook page for your campaign to help streamline your marketing strategy.
This template also includes setting up the home page for $595. We will also show you how to operate the website, with an hour training. If you choose to not manage the website and want us to populate all of the pages, we just charge by the hour. See more on our websites.
It is a little difficult to show you websites, because with most campaigns we turn them off after the race... so we have captured a few screenshots of some past projects, and have set this one up (click here) as a temp website for your viewing. If you're interested in seeing a live demonstration, you can contact us.
We can design the mailing piece and help create a strategy. It is important to think outside the box and get away from those platitudes that blend in with the competitor's message. We also can help procure a mailing strategy linking to your website for donations, letters, newsletters, social media and email blast programs. Creating a whole mixture of integrated marketing concepts brings your best foot forward. Below are different types of mailing lists we can provide for you:
NeighborMailTM mailing (Post Office refers it to Every Door Direct Mail). Postcards for campaigns have been done in many different sizes, from 3.5" x 6" up to 6.125" x 11.5" (max). We have a special discounted printing price for large quantities from the years past, so don't be afraid to include this major important component in your campaign. This would send to every address, in a specific area, these people may not be registered to vote.
Political Data - Anything you need from fat cat donors to specific voting trends, We've got it. If there is data you're used to getting from another source, give me a shot. We only use the best political data and on large projects, and we can often match or beat the competition.
DSF Your Data - If your campaign already has the data lists, make sure you send it through our DSF for possible High Density or Saturation postage savings. This will legally be able to qualify mail for the lowest rates without updating your walk sequence numbers.
