Lobbyit.com Partners with Salsa Labs to Offer Clients Stronger Legislative Voice
Partnership advances Lobbyit’s mission to provide affordable lobbying services for those who have previously not had a seat at the legislative table.
WASHINGTON, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Lobbyit.com, the groundbreaking lobbying firm, and Salsa Labs, Inc. (Salsa), the online organizing company, community and platform for nonprofits, today announced a new partnership that will enable Lobbyit.com to offer its clients a unique technology solution designed to make their advocacy efforts easier, broader and more impactful.
Lobbyit.com will roll out its new Tier 4 service option to give nonprofits, associations, municipalities and businesses a nimble alternative to the larger and less efficient lobbying firms on the market. The Tier 4 solution combines the expertise of one of the top DC lobbying firms with the proven technology of Salsa’s online advocacy platform. The resulting unprecedented offering will allow Lobbyit’s clients to make an even larger impact on the issues they care about most.
Tier 4 service options will contain a large grassroots component, 50 state legislative tracking, an advocacy web hub to design and send online letters to elected officials – through email or directly into their website forms and more. The new service tier also includes the company’s current suite of lobbying services that have proven popular to an ever-increasing number of organizations nationally.
“By partnering with Salsa, we are able to provide our clients with the most distinctive offering currently available in the lobbying and government relations industry,” said Lobbyit.com President Paul Kanitra. “Tier 4 gives Lobbyit.com clients the ability to completely outsource their entire Government Relations operation effectively and affordably.”
Kanitra said Lobbyit.com’s inclusive service plans were designed for clients looking to not only affect change at the Federal level, but to develop a broad, national advocacy presence across the country. By including these supplementary services, Tier 4 provides clients with additional avenues of approach to lawmakers and helps clients build a nationwide grassroots effort to create widespread support, which dramatically enhances a client’s advocacy position.
“Because we believe in fairness and equality for all, Salsa supports Lobbyit.com’s mission to democratize access to elected officials and give voice through affordable solutions to those who have gone unheard in the past. With Salsa’s online advocacy technology, Lobbyit.com will now be able to mobilize its clients’ supporters quickly all from the same online platform, enabling a more effective push for positive change,” said Christine Schaefer, vice president community and marketing, Salsa.
Lobbyit.com’s new Tier 4 offering provides its popular basic lobbying services, plus:
- The constructing, hosting and maintenance of a personally tailored online “Advocacy Hub” (made possible through Salsa) for any organization to fully leverage employees, membership and supporters across the country.
- Advice on how to activate nation-wide networks of citizens/employees/members and how to leverage their support
- Drafting of appropriate membership/employee letters and call scripts
- An annual “Day on the Hill”
- Facilitation of District visits by lawmakers and their staffs
- Full 50 state legislative tracking and reporting
Lobbyit.com is a completely new breed of lobbying firm with a focus on affordable prices, clear deliverables and high levels of accountability. Operating on the foundation of a four tiered structure with affordable plans for every budget, each of Lobbyit’s clients decide for themselves what level of service to engage at.
