  • Paid Canvass
  • We do the little things like leave notes at houses where no one was home to give you a big advantage. Method Campaigns retains only the highest quality canvassers to make sure that your cause is well represented. Our canvassers are trained to be fluent in all aspects of your campaign, and we employ strong technology based quality control measures to ensure that our canvassers continue to work efficiently and gather sound data.

  • Phone Services
  • At Method Campaigns, we keep it local. We will never outsource to out-of-state call centers where their workers sell widgets one day and call on behalf of "Candidate X" the next. Our callers are political activists from Southern California who speak about your campaign with a high level of fluency and are passionate about what they do. We can manage all types of phone communications from our own in house paid callers, managing volunteers with the best technologies available, robo-calls, and telephone town halls.

  • Signature Gathering
  • Need to get on the ballot? Need a petition signed? Let us be the face of your campaign. Our high quality signature gatherers receive thorough training to guarantee that you attain the numbers you need, in the neighborhoods you need.

  • Print Communication
  • Let us design and print your mail or walk pieces. We can do door hangers, direct mail, walk literature, lawn signs or any other political communication that you desire. We work with highly skilled graphic artists and print shops in order to provide you with the best products available. Let us craft a winning program for you.

  • Voter File & Data Management
  • Through comprehensive voter file management we can analyze data at the micro level, and adjust accordingly. We can purchase upgrades in data based on the type of candidate or campaign we’re running and focus our targeting. From everything like emails and additional phone numbers to enhanced ethnic data, religious information, buying patterns, family type, to socioeconomic indicators, we create the best field plan possible. All with a targeted strategy aimed at the areas that vote, your campaign efficiently communicates with the voters that matter.

Our Canvassers

Success starts with retaining the right people. We begin our search at universities and political clubs to find articulate and energetic canvassers to represent your campaign. A thorough interview and training process ensures that our canvassers are well prepared to represent you in the field. Finally, we pay the people we retain above the industry average, which significantly reduces turnover and allows us to provide you with confident and experienced canvassers.

Training

We require our canvassers to have a thorough knowledge of the campaign they are working for. We start by holding an in depth training session, and then make sure that our canvassers are kept appraised of developments in the campaign and the communications you put out.

Strategy & Targeting

Before a single door is knocked, we take the time necessary to make sure we target the voters you need to win. By analyzing voter registration data and past election results, and by applying micro-level targeting, Method Campaigns ensures that your campaign functions efficiently. As the data we collect in the field enters our database, we are able to make strategic adjustments in real-time. The technology we utilize allows us to do daily targeting updates, making sure every dollar you spend is used as productively as possible.

Technology

The cutting edge technology that we employ in the field is not currently provided by any other firm in Southern California. Our technology streamlines the data-gathering process, enables us to provide advanced targeting and superior data management, and, above all, allows for an unprecedented level of quality control. We even have the ability to integrate this for volunteers, who can use their personal iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches. This significantly reduces the need for paper and printer toner, which is not only more environmentally friendly, but is also more cost-effective for our clients.

Quality Control

The quality control measures built in to our technology allow us to monitor our canvassers - and the data they gather - at a closer level than ever before. Pen-and-paper canvassing allows numerous ways for canvassers to game the system with bad data and unreported breaks. The software we use eliminates those loopholes and makes it easy to identify canvassers who are misreporting their hours. As a result, we are able to provide high-integrity data gathering that virtually eliminates human error and data mismanagement.

Consistency

Unlike firms that hire from large temp agencies, we keep a solid team of great canvassers who do campaign after campaign with us. Your voters get to know our staff, which allows for a level of trust that other firms cannot provide.

Attention to Detail

Small details, like leaving handwritten notes, leave a big impression on your voters. Not everyone will agree on the issues, but your voters will respect the caliber of person they meet on their doorstep and the campaign that person represents. We hold our canvassers to higher standards on things from dress code to the ways they present their candidate because, in the words of John Wooden, It is the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.
