Cutting-edge targeting and custom audiences.

Delivering persuasive messages to the right voters at the right time.

We don’t just talk about “big data.” We make big wins.

What GT brings to your campaign:

Next Generation Targeting

We conduct voter research specific to your campaign or organization, starting with day-one strategic insights like vote goals and voter targeting that are unique to your effort. We use our proprietary microtargeting methodology & predictive modeling to identify voters and their issues that will matter most to your victory.

Cross-Platform Audiences

We meticulously craft custom target voter audiences across platforms – television, digital, mail, phones, volunteer organizing, and more. No one in the Republican ecosystem has more experience running successful targeting and voter contact programs than our team. We’ve managed efforts with millions of dollars spent on highly-targeted digital and broadcast media advertising supplemented by tens of millions of mail pieces, phone calls, and door knocks.

Real Campaign Experience

Data and list vendors sell one-size-fits-all, theoretical solutions to campaigns and organizations. That’s not us. We are seasoned political professionals who have won races all across the United States. We are innovators who use strategic data combined with decades of political experience to win tough fights. We use data to find efficiencies that create real strategic advantages, and we have the real-world political experience to know the difference.
