Regular Campaign Website Package
Our Regular Campaign Website Package includes a custom design that reflects your campaign. We create a website header with your campaign colors, logo, background and candidate head shot. We also modify colors, font and background to create a consistent look. Easily update pages, create a poll, integrate forms, add events, create blog posts and more. In addition, you can add event forms, expand your site with more pages, create a multi-level site menu, add multiple user accounts to allow and restrict site administration access to different users. We also include data capture of all submitted forms, allowing you to easily incorporate this information into your marketing efforts.
Enhanced Campaign Website Package
The Enhanced Campaign Website Package features ALL of the design and functionality of the Regular website package, but also includes the setup of your initial site content. We'll arrange your site text and images for a pleasing design and optimize your content for search engines. After that, it's all in your control.
Enhanced Campaign Website Package Price: $599 - Includes site tools, custom design, initial site setup and 12 months hosting. (You can extend hosting after that period.) Find out more or order this package now.
Lite Campaign Website Package
Our Lite Campaign Website Package is designed for campaigns starting with a tight budget or with a limited campaign time-frame. This package lets you choose from a wide selection of header images, color styles, and font types to create a unique look that works for any campaign (particularly school board, judicial and sheriff). From there, add your site content and go live! It's easily upgradable to the higher packages so you can grow your site with your campaign!
Many of our Lite color schemes have corresponding brochure print templates that you can use for your offline marketing.
Some designs include client-created headers. See our Lite design gallery.
Political logo design - We got you covered!
Our Regular and Enhanced website packages includes a custom-designed header, logo and site color design - and we provide high-res version of your designed site logo or header on request - for FREE!

Easy and painless setup
You have enough to do getting your campaign off the ground. Why let the creation and design of your political website become a headache? We've streamlined our setup process down to a few simple steps.
- Pick your campaign website package and order online or over the phone. After you order, you will be returned to an online form to supply us with basic contact and campaign information. From there, we can start your site setup right away!
- Your website domain is set up in 1-2 business days - or less. You can log in and start building your site when you get your login information. For Regular and Enhanced Packages, if we have your candidate head shot and/or logo, your site design customizations can usually be finished within in that time. For sites with the content setup option, allow 1-3 business days after submission of your material.
- Go live! Once you are ready to launch, generate your site and go live! Afterwards, you have full control to update, edit and add additional content to your site.
- Upgradable. With our Lite or Regular Website Package, you can easily upgrade to higher packages without losing any of your existing content. The price? Only the difference between the packages!
