Is Your Government Relations Team #SmartWorking?

#Smartworking is a proven way to create efficiencies & savings for clients in your government relations program.

There’s been a huge swell in lobbying activities in Washington during the COVID-19 pandemic as Congress swiftly enacts policies to help those impacted. Congratulations to those who are working with Congress providing the much-needed information to help them continue to make wise policy choices.

What this health pandemic is also proving is something some of us have known for a long time.  For at least the past decade 21st century technologies have afforded government relations firms #smartworking opportunities while continuing to build relationships. No fancy Washington, D.C. office is required to effectively reach lawmakers and their staff to influence favorable outcomes for their members and clients.

Events like the COVID-19 pandemic typically alter the course for many sectors toward technologies and different methods they should have been using all along. These technologies and different methods lead to many efficiencies and cost-reductions. So, it begs the question why are some government relations firms charging their clients $40,000, $50,000 and $80,000 per quarter?  It’s outrageous. #Smartworking government relations firms will never cost that much.

If you are paying these outrageous rates you must understand there are more valuable, #smartworking alternatives available to successfully achieve your government relations goals.
