Use the Power of Social Media to Make an Impact

Fill in demographic gaps using the same technology as major brands and advertisers. Use demographic information and geofencing to target specific communities or groups for engagement.

With PublicInput, you can reach all types of key demographics. Limited English proficiency, environmental justice, low-income populations, rural residents, bike riders— just about any demographic can be targeted based on age, interest, or location using social media advertising platforms.

Achieve Your Community Engagement Goals

Whether you use in-person or virtual tools to engage residents, PublicInput helps you implement a unified approach to community engagement so you can actually increase participation and achieve your engagement goals.

All participation, input, and communication received is captured in one location. Our collective database shows you who’s participating, and even more importantly, who isn’t. This gives you the opportunity to reach back out to those communities again for their feedback.
