We’re Hiring

Nicole Schlinger NOW HIRING

Hey political friends –

Due to what’s happening across the country and here in Iowa, there are people looking for work or a career change due to a very uncertain job market. The good news is, CampaignHQ is hiring. This may be the best time in your life to join our band of scrappy fighters in Brooklyn, Iowa.

Now that I’ve got you interested … let me tell you about the positions we have open:

Campaign Director
As a Campaign Director, you will be the main point of contact for a group of our clients. You will help them craft their plans and manage the execution of their telephone voter contact, telephone townhall, and conTEXT message campaigns. You will play a critical role in business development, building and maintaining relationships with candidates, campaign managers, and consultants across the country. Strong preference will be given to those who have an existing network of contacts in the political and public affairs arena.

Deputy Campaign Director
As a Deputy Campaign Director, you will be a vital part of the team delivering millions of text messages, live and automated calls on behalf of candidates and issue advocacy organizations across the country. You’ll help with price quotes, project setup and execution, script writing, data handling, and many other important tasks. At the end of the day, your mission is to support our Campaign Directors and exceed our client’s expectations.
If you are looking for an entry-level position with a nationally known firm, this could be your dream job! If you’ve worked on a campaign for one or two cycles, that’s fantastic, but not required.

Data Management Specialist
As a Data Management Specialist, you will be involved in the daily preparation of campaign reports and other data needs. This includes maintaining existing reports and databases, creating new reports and databases, accuracy and functionality of CRM data, collaborating with sales and operations to identify problems and solve them. You must be proficient in Microsoft Excel, including pivot tables and advanced formulas. Proficient in Microsoft Access table and query creation. Familiar with Visual Basic for Applications. Familiar with SQL and Python preferred. Recent graduates or those finishing remote study are welcome to apply.

These are all PERMANENT full time positions. If you love campaigns and hate unemployment, I encourage you to learn more and apply.

Interested? Email Marlys@chq.us, Senior Campaign Director, and we’ll send you a full job description and instructions to apply for the position in which you are interested.

So Now What?

Nicole Schlinger 2 COVID -19

As Americans enter week two of COVID-19 lockdown, what seemed like a new adventure last week has turned into impatience and unrest. Posts of happy parents working alongside their kids have been replaced with angry rants about lack of toilet paper.

At this moment, your audience is thinking about what kind of world they expect and demand when this is over.

Do you want them to form these opinions while reading dubious posts on social media, or while hearing straight from you?

With door-knocking and in-person events off the table, here are four ways you can make a difference right now …

Telephone Petition Drives
Want to enter the post-COVID-19 era with an army of brand new supporters, ready to get out of the house and take action? Then a telephone petition drive is for you! We invite people to add their name to your petition in support or opposed to a particular policy.  This works best with issues that provoke a strong response, like an increase to the gas tax. People who agree to lend their name are asked for their email address and to volunteer for your organization in the future.

Patch Through Calls
Any time a government body is meeting, you can influence them with patch through calls from the voting public. Senators, governors, state lawmakers, and even mayors, county, and city officials have changed their vote based on grassroots pressure. Even in times of crisis, it’s important to remember that politicians work for the people and not the other way around. Since your army of supporters cannot meet with lawmakers in person, you can make sure they are heard.

Petitions to Get On the Ballot  
While some states have pushed back their primary election, not all have extended the deadline to return ballot access petitions. So how do you collect physical signatures in the time of social distancing? Ask likely petition signers by text and phone call to sign your petition to get on the ballot. When they agree, offer to send a volunteer to their door to (safely) deliver and collect the signatures, or share a link with instructions to download the petition, sign and return it by mail. Don’t let COVID-19 keep your name off the ballot!

Introduce yourself via MMS Video  
This may be your best chance to capture the attention of young voters, women voters, and swing voters.   You can introduce yourself or share your vision in a 20 second video we deliver via conTEXT (peer-to-peer texting) and ask each person to watch your video and share their opinions.  Remember, the value of peer to peer texting is that a real human being is making a connection with another. Make sure whoever is doing your texting promises to read and respond to every reply.

While it’s important to be respectful of the fears and uncertainty Americans are facing, what we’ve learned in the last week is that people desire connection, they want information, and they most certainly do NOT want to have their voices silenced.

You may never have an audience more available, more willing to listen, and more eager to share their opinions than right now.

Seize the moment!

We are here to help. Call (888) 722-4704, or email me at nicole@chq.us.

The Results Are In…

Another Reed Awards post!

Nicole Schlinger Reed Awards 1

I can’t help it – I love talking about the award-winning team we have at CHQ and all their successes they’ve had. I know many of them would say, while taking home trophies is fun, the biggest win of all is getting to help great candidates, campaigns and clients effectively deliver their message.

Here were some of the successes we had on behalf of our clients at this year’s Reed Awards:

Innovation in Phone Engagement: Not Your Grandma’s Telephone Townhall

As voters and campaign donors drop their cell phones at an increasing rate, we took what is perceived as an “old fashioned” method of voter contact and made it relevant, exciting and engaging fora  new generation. Sen. Ted Cruz invited campaign supporters via text, email, phone and tweet to jin his telephone townhall. While on the call, supporters could listen, ask questions, and transfer to a live operator to make a donation. After the call, we created an MP4 video to share via peer to peer text message, allowing even more people to hear his message.

Best Automated Phone Call: You Know…That Love Letters in the Sand Guy

The 60+ Association is the country’s leading organization advocating on behalf of conservative seniors. Each election season, their well-known national spokesman, Pat Boone, lets seniors know which candidates will best represent their values. In this case, we sent automated calls featuring Boone’s unmistakable voice to support Nick Freitas, a Republican running as a write-in candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates. Freitas defied the odds and won by a 56-42 margin.

Best Use of P2P on a Campaign: Partnered with Campaign Solutions

Campaign Solutions and CampaignHQ have worked with a high-profile candidate on building out a texting program. Using Campaign Solutions’ dynamic MMS feature, GIFs or video directed to personalized landing pages has been successful in raising money for the candidate.

It was an honor to win these awards and a testament to our great team at CHQ. Our aspiration of excellence is the best award we can give to our clients. We are not just a call center, we are conservative communicators with a mission to better the future.

Friday Favorites – Part 2

We’re taking another look at some of CampaignHQ employees’ favorites today. As a reminder, we originally posted these fun look backs on our Facebook page. You should head on over and give us a follow for more posts and updates from our team.

My favorite call and why:

My favorite call was the call to an elderly lady who had many, many questions. I answered them as they came up. She wasn’t real comfortable donating until all the questions were answered. I must have done well because she gave me a $20 donation on a card.


My most embarrassing call:

I asked for the expiration date, “And your expiration date?” They replied, “Hopefully not soon!”

Nicole Schlinger promotions

My favorite client to call for and why:

Pro Life (SBA) – I want to be able to save as many unborn children as I can. Everyone deserves the chance to live. There are people that can’t have children and dream of having a family.


My favorite CHQ story:

November & December 2018 – On that: “Christmas Bucks/Points and prize store” promotion: I loved when everyone worked together to get each person (without supervisors suggesting it) to get a prize that they wanted. Everyone teamed up, that they came to work and made sure each day, at least, to have one person get their prize/s. I witnessed the true Christmas spirit with everyone – even a little within myself. Also, I was thrilled to see a dog eat from the shelter at the very end.


My favorite promotion and why:

I like the promotion to give to the animal shelter last year for dogs and cats, less fortunate than out own! I have a “soft spot” for cats, in particular. I also liked last year’s Christmas promotion with the points store. Everyone helped each other (without supervisor prompting) to get their gifts – The true spirit of Christmas was shown.

My favorite call and why:

I called in a southern state (had accent). He was drunk but he was funny! He kept trying to get me to come over after work and he’d buy me a drink! I got through the script and got a donation, but could hear him falling over stuff trying to get his card. What a sweet talker!


Have a great weekend!

2020 Pollie Awards

I am so honored to have been chosen as a speaker at the 2020 Pollie Awards. 

Nicole Schlinger Pollie Awards

According to the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC),

The Pollie Awards are hosted by the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC), the only bipartisan, non-profit organization for political consultants and public affairs professionals. Our mission is to honor excellence in the practice of political communications.

This year’s Pollie Awards will be held in Washington D.C. and is sure to be an exciting event for our industry. I love attending the Pollies and hearing about the cutting edge changes in campaigns and finding opportunities to grow business.

The CampaignHQ family is not new to the Pollies. Last year, we won two awards for our Teletownhall and Text Messaging work. 

We’re looking forward to a great time!
