Custom Solutions

We have found there is no one-size-fits-all solution for public affairs campaigns. Though we use similar tactics, every cause is unique, and every plan must be tailored to your desired result. Read on to learn more, or get in touch. We would be happy to make recommendations for your cause.

We generally deploy 3 primary tactics: Flood the Zone, Surround Sound, and Generate Action.

Flood the Zone

Lawmakers can be overwhelmed by all of the different bills they have to consider at once. Our “Flood the Zone” campaigns ensure your message is top of mind at the most critical time for your legislation. We use pinpoint Digital targeting methods and compelling creative to inundate lawmakers, stakeholders, and everyone in a certain geographic location with your message online. You’ll have a persistent presence on their phones, laptops, desktops, and tablets. No matter how your targets like to use the internet – Facebook, Instagram, X, LinkedIn, Google, Youtube, the wider web, Connected TV – our strategies ensure they receive your message.

Surround Sound

Working with data partners, we can map the social networks of targeted decision-makers: their families, staff, neighbors, donors, college friends, and much much more. We can then target and serve Digital ads to not just the decision-makers themselves, but everyone in their lives. This creates a “Surround Sound” effect that greatly amplifies the pressure they feel to support your cause.

Generate Action

There is an army of supporters out there ready to support your cause, and lawmakers are sensitive to constituent feedback. Our Social Media and texting campaigns hone in on these supporters and activate them to contact lawmakers on your behalf. In addition to the primary benefit of generating constituent actions that lawmakers heed, these campaigns have huge secondary benefits of raising awareness of your cause amongst interested parties across the state or region your legislation affects.
