POLITICAL CONSULTING

creative content for your political campaign



You have an amazing message -- now, you just need to get that message out to your donors and voters. I can help you reach your community by crafting a unique, comprehensive digital media campaign that includes:

  • Overall branding for your campaign & media training for you and your staff
  • Copywriting for email marketing, website, op-eds, messaging documents and other communications
  • Graphics and videos for social media & ads, as a part of a cohesive marketing plan
  • Video, audio, and musical content
  • Crafting policy positions & framing those positions in the proper way to excite voters
  • Building effective statements in response to current events or crises
  • Script/speech writing for public appearances, campaign launch videos, etc.
  • Communicating with the press on your behalf/pitching journalists, making your press kit

...and more.

With experience working on campaigns of all sizes, I know that the start of your campaign often has the tightest budget; but it’s also when a digital media campaign to spread the word is most vital. Never fear! I can work with all budgets to craft you a campaign that fits your needs. Let’s talk!

Art Chang for NYC Mayor 

Our team came in 5 months before election day to a campaign that  only had a little over $100,000 raised. We had no option other than to throw the rulebook out the window and rethink the way we market candidates. Through a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind, creative social media and digital outreach plan, we convinced over 86,000 New Yorkers to rank Art Chang for Mayor. That’s less than $2 per person. With this toolkit we built on the Chang campaign, I can help your campaign reach the masses in your community in a way that’s cost-effective.
This includes:

  • Short, digestible videos about the candidate & their policies
  • Graphics to advertise special events
  • Tweet threads and eye-catching instagram carousels to break down longer policy initiatives 
  • Press releases and candidate statements, written with care and repurposed into the appropriate graphics for each social platform 
  • Creative uses of social media platforms that aren’t typically associated with political campaigning
  • Tracking analytics and outcomes of all digital initiatives, to hone in on what resonates best with the target audience and refine our work to fit it
  • Our “secret sauce” of direct voter outreach, which we dubbed Digital Door Knocking


Example: #ArtListens “Listening Tour” videos

I framed Art’s mission of listening to the people of NYC through a series of episodes, each featuring community members & business owners across NYC.

#ArtListens Ep. 1: Fixing the housing crisis @ Co-op City, The Bronx︎


#ArtListens Ep. 2: Food Insecurity in Queens @ Calvary’s Mission ︎


#ArtListens Ep. 3: COVID’s impact on Broadway ︎



#ArtListens Ep. 4: COVID’s impact on small businesses @ Kiki’s Pet Spa, BK ︎


As a candidate, you’ll also need to respond quickly to crises or new events. These statements can easily get lost in the sea of typical, “thoughts and prayers”-style statements that voters are disillusioned by. Crafting a statement that listens to voters, addresses their concerns, and presents steps for a solution is what will make your candidacy pop.

The 2017 Women’s March on Washington
Organizer, copywriter, messaging for the Downstate NY, NYC, and Long Island Chapter

I managed the communications and messaging process that got 3,000 New York residents from all 5 boroughs, Westchester, and Long Island to Washington, DC for the 2017 Women’s March.

When we returned from the march, the NYC Chapter leaders got to work in local politics: by advocating for the Reproductive Health Act & CCCA, voting out the IDC in the State Senate, and producing a podcast that interviews NYC-based candidates for office.
