  • Social Media

    New Media NW worked with Bud Pierce for Governor to defeat his 2016 Oregon Primary opponent. Utilizing a mixture of highly targeted banner and video ads across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Google, we were able to reach hundreds of thousands of voters at the most crucial moments, helping lead us to an almost 19 point victory. New Media continued work with the Bud Pierce for Governor campaign throughout the General Election, building a following of over 21,000 followers on his social media platforms with unprecedented engagement rates and reach.
    After his campaign, New Media has continued work with Dr. Pierce by creating Oregon Crossroads, an online public policy forum, podcast, and YouTube Channel to discuss the issues facing our communities.


    New Media NW worked with the Salem Area Chamber of Commerce and the Create Jobs PAC to defeat an unfair local employer payroll tax measure put fourth by Salem-Keizer Transit. A combination of targeted banner and video ads helped us win by roughly 20 points.

    New Media NW worked with Marion County Fire District #1 to pass a levy to sustain personnel costs. Use of targeted banner and video content helped MCFD1 grow their online platform as well as pass the levy.

    New Media NW is working with Washington State Senator Bruce Dammeier in his campaign for Pierce County Executive.


    New Media NW worked with Washington State Representative Teri Hickel to defeat the incumbent originally holding her seat in a hotly contested legislative district. Targeting pivotal voters with banner and video content across multiple online mediums gave her a significant edge over her opponent, contributing to a roughly 10 point victory.
