Bully Pulpit Interactive was founded by the digital marketers of the Obama Presidential campaign to help clients in the public and private sectors create modern versions of what President Roosevelt once called a “bully pulpit,” or a platform, to reach the public. We focus on digital marketing and strategy so that we can build communities, raise money, and deliver messages to help shape public opinion.
BPI has managed the largest political digital media spend in history, helping drive the Democratic party towards a more data driven and innovative approach to fundraising, persuasion, and voter mobilization with President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election effort, the successful Senate races of Claire McCaskill and Elizabeth Warren as well as ballot initiatives such as Question 6 in Maryland and No on Proposition 32 in California. In 2013, Bully Pulpit worked with the successful Terry McAuliffe for Governor campaign as well as the Bill de Blasio and Marty Walsh mayoral campaigns. BPI also continues to work for the DNC, DSCC, DCCC and OFA, making it the largest digital marketer of the Democratic Party. BPI has won over 22 POLLIE Awards for its political work.
BPI has expanded into the corporate, non-profit and advocacy space with clients such as Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), Human Rights Campaign, Emily's List, LiveSTRONG, The New Republic, Brookings, Volkswagen, Exelon, NextGen Climate, iCivics and more.
