We check in with candidates, consultants, strategists and more to find out what’s working — and what’s not! — in the political digital world.
Meet Your Host, Josh Klemons
Josh Klemons has worked dozens of campaigns, helping candidates, campaigns and organizations ramp up and scale their digital marketing programs. From general consultant to serving as a full digital agency, he’s worked with national, statewide and downballot campaigns as they navigate the internet, build their online base, raise money and move the digital needle, day in and day out.
But he’s also worked with hundreds of clients outside the political space, ranging from solopreneurs and tiny non-profits to Fortune 500 companies, helping them master their digital marketing programs.
He reads as many newsletters about social media as he does about politics. He lives at the intersection of these two complicated-but-oh-so-important industries.
Now he’s excited to check in with some of his peers and learn from them.
Connect with him on Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn and/or Instagram.
