The Beytin Agency Wins.

We are a direct mail agency that wins campaigns for Democrats with expert strategic advice, teamwork, world-class creative and powerful narrative that connects with people in a real way.

We won more Pollies in 2015 for candidate campaign mail than any other Democratic direct mail firm. Our mail is smart, creative and effective — that’s why we’re winning accolades and campaigns.

How we win

Strategy

We’re proud of our creative work, but even the most eye-catching campaign mailer won’t translate to victory without the right strategy. We know how to win tough races in tough places with mailers that are always targeted, on message and hard-hitting.

Creative

Our creative packs a punch that makes voters pay attention. That’s why we've won 28 Pollie Awards and 7 Reed Awards for excellence in direct mail. We know how to grab attention with humor, heartbreak, gripping photography and more.

Execution

Complicated targeting, multiple candidates, fast turnaround, tight budgets – we’ve done it all. Our targeting experts will make sure you’re talking to the right voters. Our expertise in variable printing means you can send unique, personalized pieces.

Can I Take Campaign Headshots With My Smartphone?

Can I Take Campaign Headshots With My Smartphone?

By Aaron Beytin

So, you want to know if you can use your iPhone to take your campaign headshots. Yeah, of course you can take your campaign headshot with your iPhone. But before you do, we ask you to consider one thing. You know that perennial candidate who is always running for something or other in your hometown – the guy who’s up for school board one year and Congress the next? Do you remember what his picture looks like in the Election Day profiles in your local newspaper? Right. He either looks like he’s a little off-kilter or like he just got out of the slammer. That guy takes his campaign headshots with his iPhone. Heck, it might not even be an iPhone. Plus, the iPhone will make your face look fat (read more on that below).

The point we’re trying to make is that a headshot can, in many ways, set the tone for your campaign. The public is watching (and will be secretly judging via the anonymity of the ballot box).
