Creating Support for Policies that Matter to You
At WP Group, we know how government works. That is why when we identify the top policy concerns that impact your business, we don’t just linger around the stakeholder’s doorstep. We serve as advocates for your cause inside and outside government walls.
We are committed to providing long-term assistance to our clients so they can amplify their messages and deliver a clear and unified narrative to policymakers, opinion leaders, and other stakeholders. Our government expertise and ability to contact the right political players facilitates the process of targeting policymakers with the right message at strategic moments.
Our services include:
A large part of advocacy has to do with the relationship we create with key audiences outside government branches for our collaboration on policy issues. At WP Group, we identify and recruit those groups or individuals who may support our clients’ interests and strategically organize these advocates by chapter, region, or issue. This allows us to educate, energize, and evaluate the quality of their participation to enhance our winning tactics and respond to possible vulnerabilities.
The political landscape can be rocky, and “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” At any moment, disruptive events can surface and threaten our clients’ interests. We work to serve as a reliable ally for the entities we represent by keeping a strong and steady grip on any crisis with effective strategic planning and execution.
Coalition building and management
In terms of resources, the more the better. When it comes to coalitions, that same rule applies. Our team works daily in grouping actors for a common and collective goal, while consolidating forces, expertise, and resources to bear on complex issues or interests. We push to create and guide these formations to ensure that the coalition remains unified, energetic, and strong enough to beat adversarial stances.
A client’s message is at the core of the advocacy process. At WP Group, we help develop a well-thought and persuasive message to make outreach strategies effective and engagement productive. We also assist in fine-tuning communications to guide our clients on what to say, how to say it, who should say it, where to say it, and when.

Political Campaign Management
Positioning You to Win

Our experienced group of political consultants have assisted in the development and implementation of winning campaign strategies and plans for presidential candidates, governors, lawmakers, among many other elected officials throughout the Americas.

Campaign strategies and plan development
If your are not able to write down your strategy, it is most likely that you do not have one. At WP Group, we take this reality into account and create thoughtful plans to minimize uncertainty. We develop solid, yet versatile strategies with the intention of being the leaders and winners of any race. We design plans of substance, not only to project organization, but also to save on resources and take advantage of opportunities.
Managing a political campaign is not a job for an amateur. It requires someone with academic and practical experience. At WP Group, we have an elite team that can convert your political ambitions into a reality. We take over the job armed with experience and a plan for winning; organizing, executing, and monitoring all campaign components in collaboration with other consultants to best represent you in the political race.
Cleverness, rhetoric, ideology, or good looks are not enough to beat the opposition. Instead, money is the fuel that sets in motion and maximizes message delivery and reception; response to crisis; research; and determines the efficiency of the winning strategies. We recognize that a successful campaign is a well-funded one. At WP Group, we advise our clients on how to effectively and legally organize profitable fundraising activities to drive victory.
Political polls analysis
Polling is a critical tool to understand the minds of voters. It is also a deciding factor when it comes to investing time, money, and manpower. The analysis of polls can reveal the candidate’s positioning, the strengths and vulnerabilities of the opposition, and the attitudes of the voters regarding certain issues. Our analysis of this data can help the candidate understand the mind of the constituency to improve the mechanisms of targeting them.
A winning campaign simplifies issues for the constituency and gives them an overall framework by which to evaluate them. It also provides a straightforward, yet memorable message to shape the perceptions of the candidate and mobilize the constituency in their favor. Our key is to be selective with the campaign narrative to successfully reinforce, persuade, and convince voters that the candidate we represent is the best option.
Targeting and electoral strategies
Which and how many voters can pave the way for your victory? This is a question we take very seriously when we assist in the process of tailoring your campaign strategies at-large and per district. We highly value electoral data such as, but not limited to, demographics, past voting outcomes, polling results, voter registration, and electoral turnout. We analyze this critical information to suggest where to allocate resources in order to enhance efficiency, boost performance, and influence voter attitudes during the campaign period.
