DSPolitical Launches DemocraticAds.com: A Self-Serve Platform for Voter Targeted Digital Advertising

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the nation’s leading voter targeted digital ad network, DSPolitical, announced the launch of DemocraticAds.com, a game changing new self-serve advertising platform that puts the same voter targeted digital advertising technology used by major statewide and national campaigns into the hands of local Democratic campaigns and progressive causes – serving everything from a state representative’s race to a county ballot measure to a campaign for dog catcher.

“We’re excited to be disrupting and democratizing the voter targeted digital ad space with DemocraticAds.com by putting the power of our unrivaled data and near universal reach into the hands of local Democratic campaigns and progressive causes,” said Jim Walsh, DSPolitical’s co-founder and CEO. He continued, “Innovation. It’s the driving force behind every decision we make at DSPolitical and DemocraticAds.com is a testament to that commitment.”

This new self-serve platform allows clients to launch their own voter targeted digital ad campaigns in just minutes from the comfort of the campaign headquarters, a laptop on the road, a consultant’s corner office or, well, just about anywhere. The power to easily reach targeted voters with banner ads, pre-roll video, and Facebook custom audiences, was previously unattainable to many Democratic campaigns and progressive causes — especially on the local level. Not anymore.

With a minimum purchase of only $500, DemocraticAds.com truly levels the playing field allowing candidates for local office to more easily reach voters online just like candidates for higher office with much larger budgets. What’s more, DemocraticAds.com is the first new product to launch utilizing NGP VAN’s Innovation Platform.
