What separates us from other consulting firms? We inspire and empower you to achieve your vision through laser focus and our proven methodology that replicates success for our clients. Our process discovers what’s unique about your candidacy, issue or organization to set you apart from the pack.
We do it all to empower you to make things better for your community and our country.
When you advocate for an important issue, you need a strong ally with knowledge of the terrain at your side. We constantly refresh our network of influencers to help you make a powerful impact. We’re ready to mobilize our extensive connections on your behalf--editorial boards, top donors, interest groups, key grassroots and business leaders--everyone you need to build support and make a difference. And we’re aggressive in getting things done in a timely manner. These are just some of our services:
- Public Affairs
- Legislative Affairs & Government Relations
- Ballot Initiatives
- Coalition Building
- Legislative Digital Services
We use our extensive experience to breathe life into the vision you have for your community, state and our country through a political campaign that uses a complete campaign toolset to make your vision a reality.
Our 35 plus years combined political experience have taught us a disciplined approach to waging winning campaigns. We use a “buddy system” where at least two people from our firm are intimately involved in your campaign so there’s never an interruption of service.
We know what needs to be done at any each stage of the campaign cycle and we’ve developed systems that address them in a timely manner. Our specially prepared training materials will teach you best practices and winning techniques that your campaign can replicate. We also help you communicate directly with people by articulating your beliefs in a way that’s easily understood and creates a positive response.
Additionally, we excel at determining which solutions will work best for your campaign, then we negotiate to provide them at a lower cost, allowing you to reach an even larger number of voters and making you that much more likely to win. And we’re known for conducting effective research (such as polling and voter ID surveys) which tell you what people are interested in so you can target your direct mail, phone outreach and other messaging tools.
We understand how all the different pieces of a campaign should connect, and we fit them together to provide you a clear path to victory. Here are just some of our services:

- Direct Mail
- Digital & Social Media

Admit it: fundraising is probably your least favorite thing to do. We get that. Which is why Olson Strategies & Advertising prepares you to do something different. Instead of asking people to donate money, we empower you to share your vision with clarity, conviction, and commitment. When your vision is alive with potential donors, they are moved and appreciate the need for financial resources to make it happen.
We utilize techniques that take the drudge work out of fundraising, transforming it into a powerful opportunity for obtaining the wherewithal your campaign or nonprofit group requires. We do that by helping you identify your strengths (and believe it or not, you have quite a few you don’t know about) and channeling them into a focused effort. We also utilize systems, mechanics, and protocols that bring the discipline and accountability, goals and metrics needed for success, giving you the insider know-how necessary for achieving your goals. We provide:
- Political Fundraising
- Non-profit Fundraising
