The Online Candidate Story
A friend of ours ran for office in 2003. She was an underdog in the campaign and needed all the help she could get.
We decided the best way to help was to build her a campaign website. The site was successful and had a large impact on the campaign. It helped raise issue awareness, it came up for web searches on our opponent’s name, and it forced our opponent to spend (lots of) money on a competing site.
In the end, our candidate won!
The success gave us the idea of using our web skills to help other local candidates. Most local campaign organizations don’t have a lot of money, so Online Candidate was envisioned as a solution to allow campaigns and candidates to easily build out and manage their own website. Our platform, built-in tools and resources helps hundreds of candidates every election cycle.
In 2017, we began offering campaign WordPress websites.
