The 2022 mid-term elections are just around the corner, and it’s another season you’ve got to convince your local citizens of your platform. With dynamics expected to shift in both houses, stakes are high, and you can expect a close contest on most issues. Therefore, you don’t have any room to make mistakes. Your political campaigns must be strategic, intelligent, and convincing.

Unfortunately, only one side can win; that must be yours. To make this happen, you have to work on a deliberate and strategic campaign strategy to reach every voter and tell your story. It’s the only way you can convince them to vote for your transformative ideas. That’s why you need to campaign hyper locally.

What is Hyperlocal Campaign Look Like?

Over the years, most agencies have been using much of their resources and time trying to run a state-wide campaign strategy. These strategies are not only scanty in detail, but they’ve not had a specific voter target. Although some have worked, it’s essential to indicate that events have overtaken them.

Today, hyperlocal campaigns are the way to go when looking to create an impression in a specific voter location. Trends show that 88% of the 2022 political advertising budget will be directed toward local political offices. With such a huge budget and time deliberately being driven towards local and in-state races, you cannot afford to be generic and simplistic in your political strategy.

How Can You Localize Your Political Campaigns this Season?

As highlighted above, political campaigns will not only be localized but very competitive this season. Therefore, you’ve to use everything that gives you an edge over your competitors. Incorporating new campaign techniques and tactics could make all the difference. Wrapify can help you deliver shrewd out-of-home advertising that will give you an edge through the following approaches.

1. Retarget Your Political Campaigns

As highlighted above, one of the most significant advantages of using a hyperlocal political advertising strategy is that you can retarget your campaigns.

With a Wrapify campaign, you can now direct your message to voters who live or work near the district you’re contesting in. This way, you can better focus your message and appeal to the needs of a particular voter. Then comes the real magic. The audience exposed to these campaigns in real life, can then be uploaded to your DSP and retsrgeted via digital, native, and CTV ads.

This means you can adjust and change your message as you get feedback from the field. For instance, if you realize that most of your targeted voters are more concerned about healthcare, you can quickly change your message and start addressing their needs.

2. Customize Your Vehicle Wraps

With Wrapify, you have the freedom to customize your vehicle wraps according to the demographics of your targeted voters. This becomes especially important when you are trying to sell a message vs. a person. For high-stakes propositions, like Prop 22 in California’s 2020 election, having a clear, strong message becomes even more necessary.

The good thing is that Wrapify will work with you to ensure that your message stands out and resonates with your targeted voters.
