Pinkerton Digital is an alliance of publishers and advertisers who are shaping the future of digital advertising. Armed with deep technical expertise and with real-world experience of political and brand advertising, Pinkerton Digital provides its partners and clients with competitive ROI, expedient services, from a helpful, experienced and friendly staff.


Our partners are serious people. Offering daily and even hourly news, insight and opinion on the issues of the day. Our partner publishers put out quality content that – by its very nature – engages readers. Our publishers’ valued and cherished product is thought. As for engagement – it’s in our DNA.


Have we mentioned “engagement?” The Pinkerton Digital reader is more likely than most to stay on site, click internal links to multiple pages and to click links to other sites within our multi-faceted alliance. Readers engage by commenting, forwarding links to friends, posting links on their social networks, etc. They download mobile apps to read their favorite sites on the go. They sign up for newsletters and they read them.

Odds are that you have your favorite political news, commentary and/or issues of the day sites. And odds are that you visit them frequently and behave just as described here.

Who is the Pinkerton Digital audience? Nearly every politically engaged American.
