A winning voter contact mail and mobile advertising campaign starts with a plan, just like all successful ideas.
A plan starts with getting to know the candidate, the campaign, and the staff.
Getting to know them starts with a meeting.
Yep, a good old fashioned face-to-face meeting, with an actual face-to-face conversation.
Majority Strategies thinks it’s worth it.
Sure, we email, text, and do conference calls, Facetime and Skype. We kept our fax machine, too, just in case.
We’ll communicate with our clients any way they want.
But it’s vitally important to start off with a face-to-face meeting where we meet, discuss and formulate a plan that works for each individual campaign.
We think our clients are worth it. Not every consultant does.
They’ll say technology exists now that “fixes” the need for an in-person meeting.
They’ll say, “Just put your ideas in an email, and we’ll get to it.”
What they mean is, they either don’t think meeting in person is important, they’re too busy with other clients to go sit down with a potential new client, or they lack the horsepower to work with their existing clients while trying to get new business.
We can do both.
Majority Strategies lives on the road.
I’m writing this on a plane to Salt Lake City.
Our other consultants? Three of them are also on planes or in airports.
That’s what we do for our current and future clients. We invest the time and resources to travel 3-4 days a week, across the country and sometimes internationally, because relationships don’t happen over email.
They happen face to face.
Last cycle, the consultants at Majority Strategies logged over half a million miles.
We rented hundreds of cars, ate more bags of peanuts and little pretzels than we care to remember, and slept in thousands of different hotel rooms because we’re committed to getting the job done the right way.
And it starts by being there.
Face to face.
