Hi. We are Ashley & Anna

Ready to Get Started?

Oh GOOD. That’s our specialty.

YOU’VE GOT GREAT IDEAS FOR YOUR COMMUNITY.

“We are going to win this election!”

We work with Democratic and Progressive candidates running for down ticket offices, from town council and school board to state legislature.

The common thread?

Our clients want to run effective campaigns and increase their donations fast so they can stop scraping for money (or spending their own savings) and run their campaigns on their terms.

BUT… WE DO THINGS

A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY AROUND HERE.

We bypass the traditional theory-based training methods like overpriced one-day seminars and time consuming 12-week modules.

(They’re GREAT for establishing a background knowledge of how campaigns work in general, but they shouldn’t come first.)

Instead, we teach the fast-track to greater impact, then we grow and go from there.

OUR PROPRIETARY 3-STEP PROCESS LOOKS A LITTLE SOMETHING LIKE THIS:

01.

Start with a quick cash injection to your campaign with Campaign Cash™.

02.

Leverage your resources to get a jump start on your marketing.

03.

Create and implement a long term strategy that ensures better exposure and more votes.

LET’S BREAK IT DOWN

YOU MADE IT THIS FAR, WE MIGHT AS WELL

LET’S BREAK IT DOWN

YOU MADE IT THIS FAR, WE MIGHT AS WELL

Step 1.

Raise $1000 this week with Campaign Cash™.

With the Campaign Cash™ workshop, we help you create and execute a fundraising strategy that’s both accessible and scalable, while allowing you to grow both your list of supporters and your campaign fund at the same time. 

This means your fundraising becomes profitable in your first week implementing our process, and you build data along the way that you can use to enhance your campaign.

Best of all, you get the change in mindset you need to go from someone who thinks they might do well in public office to sometime who knows what it takes to win the seat and get the job done. 

Start the Campaign Cash™ workshop today and launch your fundraising this week!

Step 2.

Start your marketing.

After you get started with Campaign Cash™, you’re ready — and your campaign is ready — for you to start really getting the word out about what you’re trying to accomplish because you’ll have the Seed Money you need to make it happen.

The word “marketing” encompasses so much of what you need to do in order to run a successful campaign. There’s walk cards, mailers, websites, video marketing, blogging, and social media– not to mention commercials, radio spots, billboards, and more.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be releasing a special guide to help you figure out exactly what your next move should be. Want to be the first to know?

YES! I want to know about new trainings!

Step 3.

Implement your winning strategy.

You’ll need to develop a schedule of events for everything you’re doing to make sure you get elected. Fundraising, canvassing, marketing, meetings, and events should follow a plan that you make once and then work from for the duration of your run for office.

When you plan your campaign first it allows you to make the most of what little time you have to convince your district that they need you, instead of flying by the seat of your pants until Election Day.

We know there’s a lot to do! That’s why we post daily inspiration, information, and tips on our Instagram, geared specifically to help candidates make the most of their campaigns–but more importantly–to get the big W!

We Craft

In 2016, we woke up like everyone else on the day after the election…
we rubbed our eyes and said to ourselves, “Well, shit.”

Aside from the real grief, we were also just full of guilt. How did we let things get this far? Why didn’t we do more? Why didn’t we try harder? Ok so we are here today, but how do we change? How do we fix things? How do we stop this? We just didn’t know dude, we were lost.

We grew up thinking that politics had some sort of pay wall, right? Like there were educational or networking or financial barriers to real political participation. On the day after the election we were looking into going back to college for policy degrees. We just wanted to get a seat at the table and would do anything to make that happen.

Like hundreds of thousands of other people in the country, we found ourselves in some of those really early activist Facebook groups. The sense of emergency was palpable. People from all over the country who never had participated in real activism were organizing, fast and furious.

We developed a customized communication platform for grassroots networks. During development we spoke to hundreds of activists about their needs, organizing pain points, relationships with their local Democrats, administrative, HR, and organizational obstacles. We wrote a guide for how to run a grassroots organization and helped to build a national network of thousands of grassroots leaders that is still active today.

From all of this work, we were flown to LA by the Center For American Progress to participate in a three day long think tank with other community organizers. It was really interesting but what we ultimately took away from it is this: the only way to really change things is to run for local office or support someone who is running for local office. The Republicans really understand this. They know that the way you shape the political culture in America is by systematically taking over, from every local office, up.

And so that’s what we did and that’s what we continue to do.

We have, in the last four years, worked with candidates, campaign staff, PACs, the Democrat apparatus, caucuses, and activists.

In doing so, we realized that we already had everything that we needed to help local progressives run for office.

Running for office is essentially selling a product, the candidate. All of the sales, marketing, and business systems that we have honed and used throughout the years translated so efficiently here. A political campaign IS ultimately a marketing campaign.

Over the years we have worked in every type of sales, marketing, training and management and we mean everything from door to door to cold calling to creating and running a rental division and training at a real estate brokerage, to catering and event management and waiting tables and managing restaurants to small business consulting, branding, marketing and web development to lead generation to international business to business sales and account management.

Every single job we ever took, every single system we ever used, everything all together was everything that you need to run a campaign.

There was no secret. There was no barrier. There was nothing to learn but how to adapt already proven methods to this specific set of circumstances.

In our first year in politics, we started building websites for candidates and donated over $30,000 worth of marketing, consulting, sites and hosting

Then we went on to working directly inside campaigns as treasurers, campaign managers, and marketing experts. Things took off fast, and people noticed.

Soon, we realized we had more “Can I pick your brain?” requests from other candidates and campaign managers than we knew what to do with, so we started coaching and teaching the marketing strategies we’d developed and used in all of our businesses.

Aaaaand when we realized we were repeating ourselves, client after client, we ditched the 1:1 model, started compiling everything we knew into online courses and products, and started impacting even more candidates each election cycle.

But don’t take our word for it…

“I had the pleasure of working with Ashley and Anna during my campaign… I could not have been assisted by more qualified professionals with respect to creating, designing launching and managing my social media campaign, my video campaign, mailers, fundraising activities, community outreach and interaction with municipal officials throughout the district. These two women are dynamic, passionate about their work, relentlessly dedicated, forward thinking and amazingly creative. Their perspectives on marketing are fresh, user-friendly, interactive and innovative. They are dedicated to their tasks, take their work quite seriously and their work product is without peer in the industry. They were fun to work with and had the wherewithal at times to tell me when they thought I was going down the wrong path. They are simply not “yes” people. Under their guidance we had a very successful campaign and I was quite proud of what was put out in the public domain. I would not hesitate to work with Ashley and Anna again and highly recommend their services to anyone looking to market and enhance their campaign.”
