WHAT WE DO
POLITICAL CONSULTING AT THE FEDERAL, STATE, LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL LEVELS.
Providing strategic communications, direct mail, fundraising and general consulting with Democratic candidates and interest groups. WZW Consulting is a full service political communications firm. We help craft your message to the voters you need to persuade to win and deliver it in an effective and creative way.
Bottom Line; We Win Elections!
We are a small firm in America’s Heartland with a strong personal connection to our clients. With experience in the day-to-day operations of difficult and fluid campaigns, we understand all aspects of the campaign and develop an overall strategy. We have experience with high-profile campaigns around the country; yet, we offer the attention only a small firm provides. You have access to the principals on your schedule, and our consulting style is hands-on. We answer texts at 2AM, wrestle with the media, and protect our clients. Your campaign needs dedicated professionals to maintain focus under pressure while the candidate (or organization) is out slaying the dragons.
Campaigns are about offering an alternative to the status quo. Our communications strategies are designed to stand out, on the web or in the mailbox, and deliver alternatives to target audiences. We believe in simple: simple design and a simple message that cuts through the clutter. We provide compelling copy and innovative design to develop a clear message targeted to the right audience.
WZW Consulting also offers full digital buying—from Facebook to pre-roll to display ads and much more—we can help make sure your images and videos are seen on the web by those who you need to target. No more random buying of websites. Through IP-targeting and cookie matching, we can make sure the same universe of people receiving your mail also see your content on the web.
WHO WE ARE
Zak believes in a hands on approach to political and public relations campaigns, recognizing that a consultant should roll up his sleeves and apply the elbow grease.

Starting as a sophomore at Beloit College in Wisconsin, Zak is an over 20 year political veteran, working tirelessly on over 100 campaigns at the municipal, state, and federal levels. He managed his first campaign at 22, first congressional at 23, and his first statewide at 24. Zak ran a fundraising firm for six years, focusing on judicial and downballot statewide campaigns. He now focuses on direct mail, as well as operating as a general consultant, for many of his clients around the country.
