Professionalism in Campaigning
Candidates considering undertaking a campaign should think carefully about the cost of running for office. The opportunity cost of campaigning full time means a significant personal cost due to lost income, as well as the costs incurred on the campaign.
Those serious about a career in politics have few chances to win and hold seats. For a relatively limited outlay an experienced professional can maximise chances of success, especially at selection for safe seats.
Simon prefers to charge fixed fees with incentives for winning. These are discussed with clients and agreed on before undertaking the campaign, and an initial part payment is sought before taking on a client.
Simon can provide an hourly rate for clients but prefers to operate on a fixed fee.
