"Absolutely incredible... most effective political ads...
VoteVets has really been punching above its weight this election cycle"
In 2020, VoteVets launched a year-long campaign to attract new supporters to the organization and defeat an traitor president.
We created a series of digital video ads to use in paid and organic placements on social media platforms to engage our targets.
"Speed kills" was our mantra. We built the program to foresee where the news cycle was headed, nimble enough to crash into it at just the right moment for maximum impact. We didn't follow the news cycle, our ads made news in the news cycle, and often created the news cycle.
"Fresh creative" was our platform. Hard-hitting ads exposed truths about Donald Trump and the threat he posed to troops, veterans, and national security. Our North Star was - we only proceed when veterans are the only ones who can say what needs to be said.
The series generated over 45 million organic views across social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube), and were viewed by tens of millions more via paid placements. VoteVets became one of the most watched political video content creators on Twitter and Facebook.
Exit polling by Edison Research showed Trump's support among active duty military and veterans dropped precipitously. Trump won these voters by 26 points in 2016. On Election Day 2020, the gap had narrowed to 7 points, providing a decisive edge for Biden.
The campaign swept the 2021 AAPC POLLIE Awards, winning for Best Presidential Digital ad; Best Presidential IE TV ad; Best Viral Video; Best Use of Video; Best Bilingual Digital spot; and the Silver POLLIE Award for Best Digital Creative Set for the campaign as a whole.
