Liegey Muller Pons

Company

Full-service political marketing company focused on European campaigns. They combined traditional campaigning techniques like canvassing with more advanced databases about voters, in particular their 50+ One voter database software. Their work seems to focus more on optimizing canvassing using data and campaign management rather than social media campaigns. They work on both political campaigns, as well as canvassing and surveys around political/social issues or for trade unions. Due to limitations on data available in Europe, they generally start with data at the neighborhood level rather than the individual level and collect additional data through door-to-door canvassing.
