Bates Consulting provides consulting, persuasion mail and strategic services for Democratic candidates and progressive issues. We’ve worked on campaigns ranging from Presidential to legislative, as well as ballot measures and advocacy campaigns.
Our consulting services include message development, integrated communication strategy, targeting, and full persuasion mail production — art, copy, printing, mailshop — from conception through delivery to the post office.
The president of Bates Consulting, Ross G. Bates, has been working in the political persuasion mail business for over 30 years, first in Los Angeles then, from 1993 through 2006, as President of BatesNeimand in Washington, DC. In 2007, Ross moved to Seattle. Bates Consulting is a continuation of Ross’ commitment to combining thoughtful strategy with creative design to promote winning campaigns.
In 2014, Bates Consulting added a Sacramento office to service our growing California business.
