CAMPAIGN STRATEGY AND MANAGEMENT
Rodriguez Strategies is a one-stop-shop to dissect public policy challenges and place them within the broader political context. Our approach workshops potential paths forward and utilizes our research arm, Rodriguez Gudelunas, to test the legal and public viability for a successful campaign. Our team maps a tailored plan, performance metrics, and timeline, and then adjusts strategic and tactical considerations as necessary over the course of the campaign.
RESEARCH AND DATA ANALYSIS
The growing demand for data-based solutions to public policy challenges is clear. Organizations are now looking for the kind of data that was formerly reserved for candidate campaigns. With that in mind, Matt Rodriguez and Will Gudelunas partnered in 2019 to launch a higher-level of service that avoids the costly delays associated with disjointed public affairs campaigns and too many consultant entities bogging down the process.
Rodriguez and Gudelunas utilize an innovative approach allowing for campaign development and execution to take place in tandem with qualitative and quantitative input. Research and strategic refinement form the backbone of the team’s approach - a process from the inception of an idea through its completion.
