From local council members to President of the United States, there are over five hundred thousand elected officials in the U.S., all of them with their own unique needs. During the 2018 midterms, spending by political campaigns totaled almost $6 billion¹ and it is projected that the 2020 Presidential elections will top $10 billion in spend², with 30% expected to go towards digital marketing. Candidates at every level of the political spectrum need a variety of materials created that are unique to their campaigns. Those materials need to be adaptable for all mediums and often need to be completed quickly in order to respond to the news, key issues or a competitor’s message in a timely fashion. They need all this, and yet more often than not, political campaigns are strapped for resources, time and staff.

“The marketing needs of political campaigns are massive, with both incumbents and first-time candidates working harder than ever to cut through the noise and connect with voters. To stay relevant and in touch in the always-on world of modern politics, campaigns need the support of talented people who are available on-demand,” said Brent Messenger, Vice President of Public Policy and Community at Fiverr. “Fiverr’s Politics store makes the process of buying and selling the services that campaigns need easier, faster and more accessible, no matter their budget. We’re excited about the opportunity to help campaigns better tackle their needs while at the same time introducing services that would have been inaccessible to many candidates in previous cycles.”

Fiverr has already seen candidates and consultancies taking advantage of its platform for campaign-specific needs. Based on data pulled from public filings for political campaign committees and information from interviews with professional campaign managers, Fiverr curated a collection of services that almost all campaigns are looking for in order to run and win in 2020 including:

“In order to stand a chance in today’s political environment, campaigns and their leaders need to be more agile and flexible than ever before,” said Michael Ceraso, Co-founder of Winning Margins, a company that partners with under-resourced Democratic state parties and candidates. Ceraso is also the former New Hampshire state director for Pete Buttigieg’s (D) 2020 presidential campaign as well as the former California state director for Bernie Sanders’ 2016 presidential campaign. “Sellers on Fiverr have been invaluable to the candidates that I work for because they are effective at moving quickly and at the same time delivering quality work. I have used Fiverr for everything from graphic artwork to copy editors. With the new Politics store, I am excited to see them adding more talent to the platform and making the experience easier and even more efficient than it already is.”
