Fred Thompson - Fred08 and FredPAC

episode49 is the firm behind www.Fred08.com, the website for Republican Presidential candidate Fred Thompson.

episode49 first launched www.ImWithFred.com, which took in over $350,000 in the first 48 hours. episode49 immediately began building increased functionality to improve the site. These new features included a completely new design, an extended fundraising program, an action center where volunteers can get involved, a newsroom, a video feed, a full featured blog and other social networking tools.

Ken Smith, Managing Partner of episode49 notes that, "Many development firms would love to have this opportunity and episode49 is proud to be in the elite group of those who can actually achieve that goal."

The Project for Excellence in Journalism (PEJ) was reported on wired.com as saying, "A detailed content analysis of Thompson's site on the eve of his entering the race finds that it is already among the most sophisticated of anyone running," writes PEJ's research associate Niki Woodard. "It exceeds all of his GOP rivals in interactivity and is notably active in fundraising."

"Although we have a number of national and even international clients, we still place tremendous value on our local clients," says Ken Smith, managing partner of episode49. "It is our local experience that allows us to compete in much larger markets like Atlanta and Washington, DC."
