Case Study

Goal: Increase name recognition of County Comptroller candidate with a comprehensive, local digital campaign.

To give the campaign a boost in the final stretch before election day, a high-volume impression, high frequency plan was developed.  The impressions were compressed into two weeks to succinctly reinforce the candidates name during these critical final days.  All impressions ran on Syracuse.com, across a variety of positions to capitalize on increased local audience, seeking local election coverage in the weeks leading up to the election.

The County Comptroller won his race by 4 percentage points.  His campaign attributed his win to name recognition among the local voter base.

Case Study

Goal: Develop a targeted digital marketing strategy to support State Supreme Court Justice candidate in highly competitive race.

To capitalize on local reach, a carefully curated local media campaign was developed utilizing high impact Digital placements and high volume impressions on Syracuse.com.  Print ads in The Post Standard were also used to reach the largest potential local audience in the six counties eligible to vote for this race.

The State Supreme Court Justice won the highly contested race by a slim margin.

Case Study

Goal: Generate awareness of and interest in Mayoral candidate ahead of primary election, among Syracuse city residents.

City of Syracuse is home to 141,000 people, making it a small audience.  And it gets even smaller when looking to motivate only democrats and independents who vote in the Democratic primary making traditional, broad awareness mediums wasteful and ineffective.  To reach this niche audience of Democrats and Independents in the city of Syracuse, Advance Media New York developed a large scale digital and print program with high volume, high frequency and high profile placements with premium publisher properties.

The innovative campaign strategy of this candidate led them to win the Democratic Mayoral nomination by 18 percentage points, carrying 50 city districts to victory.
