DMO Political Council Advice
Russ Swindell of Public Policy Polling
|I hope you and your family are doing well and staying healthy as we all adjust to our new living and working situations. As we head into this uncertain time in campaigning, I wanted to make sure you had PPP’s most recent pricing on hand as you work to understand this new electoral and issue landscape. If it is helpful to talk through any research needs that you have, we are always willing to do that, and you can book a meeting here: Link to book a meeting on my calendar .
As we do more and more texting this year, we are encouraging clients to do more polls with calls and texts. Most projects still come out around $6,000. Our IVR only surveys generally start at $3,000 for 5 questions plus demographics, and go up from there depending on the number of additional questions, whether it is a primary or general election, the geographic area being polled, and larger than standard sample sizes.
We are also now offering texting to cell phones as a supplement to automated telephone polling. We strongly recommend this for effectively reaching younger voters and voters in urban areas. At an additional cost of only $2,500, it allows us to reach cell phone-only voters and still keep your project under $6,000.
When you need other modes, we also offer online panels and live calls to cell phones to supplement automated telephone calls, each at an additional cost. The attached pricing guide provides more details.
Please contact me if you have any questions or need a quote for a project.
