Prater Raines has been the leading provider of online campaigning tools to the Liberal Democrats since 2002. Our scalable, hosted solution is used by hundreds of Lib Dem sites across the country – from MPs to MEPs, local parties to party campaign organisations, council groups and regions.
Prater Raines has been supporting Liberal Democrat MPs since 2003, when we first developed the website of Andrew Stunell. We continue to do so today, delivering websites for Tim Farron MP and Greg Mulholland MP.
Through our system of daily, weekly and monthly email digests, we offer an unparalleled ability to match ground campaigning through Focus leaflets with online campaigning via email. You produce the content, and we’ll handle the delivery. The perfect system for hardworking local MPs.
In these days of big data, we also offer open, click and donation tracking as standard, as well as the ability to import data from other sources.
We were delighted to be asked to create a website presence for three candidates in the Liberal Democrat Presidential Election 2014. Each website needed to make use of base Foci2 skins in a unique way, incorporating strong imagery, engaging content, and CSS overrides, to create a brand identity for the candidate that distinguished them from their competitors who were also using the same web services.
Each campaign sought to engage with members in unique ways, leveraging our social media integration, contact/volunteer forms, and email digests to keep supporters engaged and updated throughout the campaign.
The Liberal Democrat President, Sal Brinton continues to use her site to help keep members up to date with her work as President.
