Candidate Boot Camp

Candidate Boot Camp logoI’m very proud to finally realize a six-year vision to launch an online training resource for political candidates who want to run for local office.

Candidate Boot Camp is a team of experienced campaign professionals with a goal to democratize democracy by lowering the barriers to running for political office. We offer online candidate training and free resources to people who want to serve their fellow citizens but don’t have the budget to hire professional campaign consultants and staff.

The training is entirely non-partisan. Our contributors have diverse ideologies and we believe that our political system is best served when as many citizens as possible are actively involved. The founding team is located in New Hampshire, where we know a thing or two about running for local office. There are 400 Representatives and 24 Senators, making NH the second largest legislature in the United States following the U.S. Congress. It is said that only the U.S. congress and the English and Indian Parliaments are larger.

Liberty Digital Marketing

In September 2015, I returned to individual practice for digital marketing consulting. It was a great opportunity to re-brand Domesticating IT, which started out as a blog and grew into a consulting practice. This was something that evolved over time and, therefore, never enjoyed the forethought of a clear brand message and logo.

Authentia

Domesticating IT Joins Authentia

Authentia builds top-line revenue ecosystems and has growing demand for the quality of social media marketing which Domesticating IT has demonstrated for several years.  “Moving the needle in organic revenue growth must now include a strategic inbound marketing component”, says Authentia’s CEO, Conrad Sanford, “We think Jon DiPietro, now heading this practice, with the thought leadership our clients demand.”

From Domesticating IT’s perspective, strong growth in 2013 brought the business to a crossroads. Either Jon was going to have to turn away business or else find a way to expand. It just so happened that the team at Authentia had the right skills and resources to make it happen. “It was getting harder and harder for me to squeeze in all of the things I wanted to do for my clients and that wasn’t acceptable to me. I’m very happy now that with these additional resources, I’ll be able to increase both the quality and quantity of services I can offer them.”

Under the terms of this agreement, Domesticating IT’s client base will benefit from Authentia’s team of web designers, graphic designers, copywriters and other skilled professionals. We look forward to welcoming past and present clients in addition to meeting new ones!
