Who uses Campaign Partner?

How does your system compare to other website solutions?
Campaign Partner is the fastest and easiest way to get your campaign website up and running. Unlike other solutions, you won't need hours of training sessions, and you won't have to wait days or weeks for someone to create your site. The moment you sign up, a fully-functional campaign website is created for you - all you need to do is pick a style and add your own words to the page. If you're comfortable browsing the web and using email, you'll feel right at home with Campaign Partner.
I already have a logo from my campaign signs and literature - can I
use that on my site?
Absolutely! You can easily add your own logo and campaign graphics. We'll even help you tweak your existing logo to match your site.
It looks like you offer some features that I don't need - can I disable
or hide these?
Of course! You can pick and choose the features that make the most sense
for your site.
What if I can't figure out how to do something? Am I on my own?
Not at all! We have a great support staff to help guide you through the
process of creating and updating your site. Here's what some of our customers have said:
“Your app is amazing. Your support team is exceptionally helpful and quick to respond. Thanks a bunch for making my campaign process so much more effective, yet simple.”
- Charles Pilcher
“I want to thank Campaign Partner for an easy-to-use and well designed campaign website. I received many kudos for my site. Short of having someone else do it, I can't imagine it being any easier.”
- Don Boyd
“Do you guys know how incredible awesome you are??? I was quoted [elsewhere] anywhere from $500 to between $1800-2400 for a campaign web site. As a pretty 'non-techie' type person, I am easily intimidated by things that don't work the way I want them to and I was never made to feel incompetent. Seriously, I am so very impressed by the extremely quick, helpful and professional response I have gotten every time I contacted your team. Plus the option to 'hibernate' the site for future needs. I am super happy I stumbled onto Campaign Partner.”
- Kathleen Simko
“When I decided to run for public office I began the dreaded search for a website. I'm no web expert, so it was important for me to find a company that made the process as easy as possible. Campaign Partner allows anyone to have a professional looking web site that is very easy to manage and update. Did I mention they also excel at customer service? I am an actual customer and I recommend Campaign Partner without hesitation.”
- Shad Prichard
“Campaign Partner provided top notch support and went above and beyond our expectations for the minimal fee charged. They provided a beautiful website that required little maintenance from us, leaving our valuable time to tend to other election matters.”
- John Barrington
I have a friend / relative / volunteer who's a web designer. Why should
I use Campaign Partner instead of building a custom campaign website from scratch?
Running a political campaign is exceptionally hard work, and the last thing you
need to worry about is your website. Even if you're lucky enough to have
a volunteer who has the technical skills necessary to create a professional-looking
election website on your timetable, having them available to make changes
on a moment's notice for the duration of a campaign is likely too much
to hope for. With Campaign Partner, you'll have a website that you can begin
using today and easily update at your own convenience.
Do I have to sign a contract?
Campaign Partner is a month-to-month service - no contracts are required.
You can cancel or switch to a different plan at any time.
