aware of and responding
to one’s surroundings;
Don’t print that mail piece. Don’t run that digital ad.
Here is where your campaign’s advertising money is being spent.
Those are words you rarely hear a political consultant say. Until now.
A Broken Industry
Conscious Voter Contact is changing the political consulting business. As campaign veterans, we know how hard it is to raise political money. We also know how easy it is to spend it – and that’s the problem. We started this business in 2018 after we got sick and tired of watching hard-earned campaign funds get spent in obscure and ambiguous ways. Even if they ask, many clients have no idea about how their money is being spent — what mail pieces actually cost, where the digital ads are running, and who is making what profit. All of that changes when you hire Conscious Voter Contact.
Transparency at Every Level
We offer a superior product at a competitive price, and we are 100% transparent about costs and margins. And our work looks different — it’s not standard political mail and digital ads that get recycled from race to race by simply inserting a different candidate’s name and photo. Creativity is important to us and we purposely don’t use designers who’ve done political work before. We understand that voters have a million things going on in their lives, and if we don’t catch their attention in milliseconds, we’ve lost them.
We also understand that digital advertising is different than other mediums of communication. When sending a piece of direct mail, you send a list of addresses to the printer and expect everyone to get the piece. Digital isn’t that simple or straightforward. Your list is matched to determine who is reachable on various mediums – and in that matching process a large chunk is deemed unreachable. Worse yet, because of privacy restrictions, you often have no idea who was actually served the ads. Our digital strategies will help to ensure that your digital ads are seen by as many of the people you are targeting as possible. And we ask all of the right questions and constantly optimize to get the most out of our ad dollars.
We pride ourselves on the strong relationships we’ve built over the years on various races across Long Island. And those relationships have remained strong because we’re committed to offering the best possible product and being open and honest with those we work with. We don’t just drop your ads for approval and then go away. We stay involved throughout the campaign and become as familiar with the terrain and the race dynamics as possible.
We build all of our businesses slowly by design – it’s more important for us to do it right than to do it fast. We’ve got reliable designers, reliable printers, and a team that is hyper-responsive to your needs.
Most important: We like to win. And we hope we’ll have a chance to prove that to you again this Election Day.
... the bulwark of our success–talent, trust, and tenacity.
