PowerThru Consulting is an award-winning digital consulting firm for Democratic political campaigns and progressive non-profits, and a Salsa-certified and NationBuilder-certified partner. We’re a nimble team of progressive tech strategists with real-world campaign experience, and our website designs and strategy reflect our deep experience on the campaign trail.
We have built beautiful and compelling political websites for campaigns across the country, with success in fundraising and activating the grassroots supporters necessary to win their election. Our campaign work is nationally recognized as the best of the best in political websites: we won 4 Reed awards and 3 Pollies, including “Best Congressional Website” for Debbie Dingell for Congress (both a Reed and a Pollie awarded for being the best congressional site in the country, regardless of political party), “Best State/Local Organization Website” for African-American Voter REP, “Best County/Local/Judicial Website” for Mark Ridley-Thomas for Supervisor, “Best Independent Expenditure Website”, and “Best Spanish Language Website”!
We’re not another Beltway cookie-cutter website shop, delivering the same designs to all their clients. Our work is custom crafted, not formulaic, and our political website designs are based on best practices honed by our real-world experience. Since we’re based on the ground in the states, we can deliver cutting edge design and development for campaigns we believe in at affordable and cost-effective rates.
“The PowerThru team did a great job building our site. Our site is clean and efficient and they were so easy to work with. They kept our project on track, on time, and made the process a breeze.”
Karen Defilippi, Campaign Manager, Pam Byrnes for Congress
We specialize in open-source content management systems for our websites like WordPress, because we don’t believe in locking you to a particular vendor and also because it will be easy for your own staff to use. We can integrate with NGP VAN, NationBuilder, BSD, Salsa, ActionKit, Action Network, MailChimp, ActBlue and more. Whatever your technology is on the back end, we can work with it.
We also believe responsive design is the way of the future, so our campaign website designs will look good and work well regardless of the desktop or mobile device you’re using. With a third or more of web traffic coming in via mobile devices, that’s now critical — and a non-responsive website can mean lost donations and email signups. Also Google now ranks mobile-optimized sites higher in search, which means many campaigns in the 2016 cycle will be scrambling to catch up.

As a part of our design process, we’ll work with you on figuring out the primary goals and audiences of your site. Then we’ll deliver a custom website design that matches your brand and delivers real world results. Need a logo and branding? We can help with that too.
We’ll also help you get set up on social media if you need it — or just rebrand what you’ve got. We deliver search engine optimization services to complete the project, and make sure search engines can find your content and index it properly, and social sharing looks the way you would expect. We’ll make sure your templates for mass email, action, donate pages etc. match your new design and branding too.
