Someone once asked a skilled tradesman if he really needed to hire a specialist work on his project. The tradesman replied, “No – only if you want it to be on schedule, on budget, and you want someone who knows what to do when things don’t go as planned.”
At JVA Public Affairs, we are experts in our work. Many of us have spent our entire careers mastering the craft of communications and the art of persuasion. We believe that the value in hiring an expert is not just in the skill at using the tool at hand, but in knowing when you’re holding the wrong tool for the job.
In public affairs, the choice between tactics will rarely be as easy as the choice between a hammer and a screwdriver; government and external affairs practitioners are often forced to choose between TV and YouTube, between patch-throughs and petitions, or between in-house advocates or contract lobbyists.
We’ve been there.
We’ve had our own sleepless nights wondering if we’ve made the right decision. We’ve felt the stress before a presentation to the board, wondering if we’ve considered all the options.
Yes, we can place internet ads. Yes, we can produce a direct mailer. Yes, we can launch a phone bank. We can also help you put the pieces together, seamlessly, and for maximum impact. We go “all in” for – and with – our clients. It’s what we do and what we’ve done for more than a decade. Contact us and see for yourself.
