        Yes on Measure B

        Measure B was a critical parcel tax renewal that guaranteed much-needed funding for Menlo Park City School District over the next decade. We used a targeted media program that highlighted our best messages and messengers on a multitude of digital platforms to drive up parent turnout for a landslide victory.

        Driving voter turnout using targeted digital communications


        In a special election with low expected turnout, our team was able to build and execute a comprehensive digital program that increased natural voter turnout among both parent and non-parent voters, resulting in a landslide victory with over 74% voter approval. Our digital program utilized paid social media ads across Facebook and Instagram, Over-the-Top (OTT) and Programmatic Video placements away from social media, and dynamic Google Search ads to push voters through a multi-level funnel of engagement and win support by Election Day. We were able to successfully expand our reach through the use of custom audiences to target likely voters within our defined universe, which also allowed us to tailor our messaging to specific demographics with what resonated best.
