The strategy involved using appropriate messaging to differentiate the candidate and optimize the website content for search engines and social media platforms to ensure that Ken’s campaign was visible and accessible to a wide range of potential supporters.

Strategy + Branding + Website

The Challenge

A young Guelph council candidate needed to quickly boost visibility amidst tough competition. A strategy was needed to align him with local values, within tight budget constraints.

Our Process

We aligned Ken’s new website with his goals and values, focusing on visual appeal, clarity, and audience resonance. We strategized to set Ken apart and ensure campaign success by boosting online presence.

We Delivered

Our website helped Ken win his campaign and serves as an ongoing resource for constituents. It fosters engagement with features like an interactive city map for local events and voting stations.

Website Development

One of the key elements of our project was the development of the website, which was designed to provide Ken with a strong online presence and a platform to engage with voters. To achieve this, we created a number of features that not only differentiated Ken from his competitors but also facilitated engagement and support from his target audience.

Donation Functionality

Donation functionality was a key feature of our strategy, enabling supporters to easily contribute to Ken’s campaign online. We developed a secure and user-friendly system that allowed supporters to donate using a variety of payment methods. This feature not only facilitated fundraising efforts but also helped to build a sense of community around Ken’s campaign.
