Dan Kelly + the North Consulting Team
Field & Community Engagement
We build field programs and paid canvasses for both electoral issue campaigns. We look for ways to maximize budgets and build efficient, integrated and creative programs that produce results.
We build voter contact programs that include live calls, SMS, ringless voicemails, teletown-halls, and digital advertising at transparent prices. Our recommendation to campaigns: build integrated programs that start by identifying your targets and developing a program that combines phones, field, SMS and digital to reach your goals. We build these programs for reduced rates that saves campaigns money and bring a higher value.
We build campaigns with a two-month start-up package, a campaign audit, and ongoing general consulting and management to help your campaign organization produce results. Our two month local race coaching program helps local s get the support they need a flat fee of $500.
