Scott Political specializes in micro target media placement.[5] This is the purchasing of media advertisements limited to a very specific geography or demographic (usually determined by voter zip codes). After the voter target is defined, the message is developed to appeal directly to that demographic and a suitable time or channel is selected, in the case of television advertisements, at which to broadcast the message.[6] For example, if a political candidate wanted to reach 35+ year-old male Republicans in the Midwest, he or she would advertise on Fox News or the Golf Channel after 5 PM on week days.

Scott Political conducts polling for candidates and political organizations: opposition polling, issue polling, and media preference polling. Polling is completed either by telephone or Internet. The 2006 Scott Political polling for the State of Texas conducted in May, mirrored the CNN exit polling conducted in Texas on Election Night.
