Political Advertising

Viewers Vote for Video, So Should You

Years ago, political advertisers could reach most voters with commercials during the evening news, since nearly everyone watched the same thing at the same time.

Now, audiences watch different shows and videos on different screens at different times. We use data to find your most likely voters on TV and digital platforms, and develop a plan to reach them with targeted video advertising.
