Liberal Art, the DC design firm behind sites like the California governor's JerryBrown.org and League of Conservation Voters's LCV.org has announced a new NationBuilder-powered offering that bring national-level design and implementation to mayoral and state-level campaigns and mid-sized nonprofits.
"Social sharing functions are baked into every page, tool, and action taken by your supporters," Liberal Art writes. "With NationBuilder, we can deliver campaign sites with everything needed to build a community and effect change."
The new offering costs $4,950 for a premium design, and $8,750 with content, social media and email setup. This is less than half the cost of comparable projects on the Drupal content management system with actions tools from Blue State Digital, Salsa or Convio. Liberal Art explains why: NationBuilder's "tools are fully integrated into the CMS. This means less setup and easier management of your messaging and action campaigns."
They also are offering express installation of either package is as little as six days. Here's a mock sitemap.
We love the pricing transparency in this new offering, and it's the latest in a series of innovations enabled by our consultant network and partners, beginning with opening up the national voter file to qualified groups at no additional cost with Political FORCE.
In our consulting network, Richir Outreach has developed a consistent training and tactics blog, including short video tutorials; Wrangler Media is specializing in converting existing sites to NationBuilder, and Veracity Media's Alex Torpey is leveraging his experience with NationBuilder into a full suite of consulting services focused on our platform.
And while NationBuilder is helping to bring national-level campaign tools to more candidates and smaller non-profits (see my recent post on grassroots municipal candidates spending less than $250 to win their elections with NationBuilder), consultants Ron Robinson (rVictory) and Brad Marston (FourTier Strategies) in 2011 brought our social media and volunteer organizing tools to the national level in the presidential campaigns of Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain. Check out Ron's implementation for the "Newthampshire" site here.
We're confident that active use of NationBuilder can help anyone organize online - no matter your price point. Sign up for a trial here, and get a look at the consultants mentioned here and more at NationBuilder's consultants page.
