National and Nebraska Political Campaigns Make Successful Transition to Digital with Help of Local Lincoln Company
COVID–19 has required every organization to adapt normal operations – cities, churches, businesses, restaurants and even political campaigns. With the Nebraska primary right around the corner, this has meant traditionally in-person events have moved entirely online. Meet-and-greet events, fundraisers, rallies and voter outreach strategies are now being conducted strictly on the web, and that will likely continue leading up to the general election in November.
A local Nebraska company has quickly become the go-to expert for many campaigns on the state and national stage. BCom Solutions, a digital communications agency with offices in the Lincoln Haymarket and Auburn, Nebraska, has spent the past six weeks assuming new responsibilities and reconfiguring strategies for many of their political clients. For Nebraska candidates like congressional candidate, state Senator Kate Bolz (D), this has meant repurposing an entire field and fundraising operation to continue exceeding internal goals while operating entirely online. State legislative candidates like Janet Palmtag (R), candidate for Legislative District 1, partnered with BCom to host a fundraising event with former Governor Dave Heineman. To date, the company has successfully facilitated or managed over 100 online events for campaigns across the country.
Brent Comstock, CEO of BCom Solutions, said they’ve worked hard to make these transitions for clients.
“We are uniquely positioned to help these organizations in a tough time of change. Everyone has reset the way they work with a digital-first mindset. Candidates and causes we work with were able to continue operating without missing a beat.”
Outside of political campaigns, BCom has worked across the spectrum to aid everyone from local nonprofits and churches, to international foundations, with the transition. Including hosting free weekly webinars on ways small businesses and non-profits can adjust.
“We’ve done everything from helping local churches move services online, to aiding foundations host virtual meetings with key leaders at the National Institute of Health (NIH), the State Department, and the United States Congress,” Comstock noted.
