Opposition Research & Competitive Intelligence

At Reveille Advisors, we are passionate about conducting targeted research into the competitors and opposition towards our clients’ interests. By utilizing Human Intelligence (HUMINT) and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), our research provides a comprehensive, 360-degree view of your current situation.

We audit public records, online software, data platforms, social media, and more to develop thorough target profiles. From there, we often employ social engineering tactics to gain deeper insights into areas of interest. In essence, we use all legal methods of data and intelligence collection to unveil the strategies and weaknesses of your challengers.

Opposition Research

Opposition research often gets a bad rap due to so many misconceptions. However, collecting oppo research is entirely legal and conducted within the boundaries of the law. It simply requires a personable and skilled investigator to uncover the details your competition hoped would remain hidden. 

We conduct opposition research using Human Intelligence (HUMINT) methods and Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) techniques to lawfully discover and gather valuable information. This research typically includes a target’s property records, business interests, legal history, professional reputation, media coverage, social life, associates, and social media activity.

For instance, a candidate may claim to represent the “working man” while secretly owning vacation homes in LLCs on a remote island. Or consider someone running a “just say no” campaign who has quietly invested in legal cannabis operations. The world is full of hypocritical figures, and we aim to expose them!

Clandestine Competitor Surveillance

Our corporate investigators are experts in clandestine reconnaissance and surveillance for both government and private sector clients. This unique service allows us to extend our research beyond the digital realm and engage in in-person operations.

You can envision our corporate surveillance services similarly to those of a private investigator. We document and perform surveillance on parties or locations, securing information that is beneficial for your needs. Whether the goal is to gather evidence or understand patterns of behavior, we will accomplish it. Common examples include:

  • Identifying a competitor’s vendors or partners
  • Tracking and recording who meets with whom and where
  • Discovering interpersonal, personal, and extracurricular relationships
  • Searching for conflicts of interest
  • Looking for evidence of corruption or unethical business practices
  • Determining business practices and processes

This list is hardly exhaustive, as this tactical service can be applied to various situations and nearly all scenarios.

Competitive Intelligence & Market Research

In-depth research into all facets of your competition is not limited to political campaigns; it is equally vital in most business sectors.

The researchers at Reveille Advisors routinely investigate why a client’s rival may be more effective, outperforming them in market share or achieving greater brand awareness and visibility. We delve into their business practices, supplier networks, real estate footprints and acquisitions, talent acquisition strategies, employee rosters, and more.

Additionally, we undertake one-off research projects tailored to your unique situation. If you’re curious about our capabilities, we are happy to discuss your needs and determine if we can meet them. Naturally, discretion is assured for those we cannot serve.

An area of specialization for us is conducting online brand visibility audits for businesses of all sizes. Our experienced SEO consultants analyze why Google favors one website over another, as many people don’t realize the significant revenue impact of being featured on Google’s first page of search results. Businesses seek our expertise to learn how to improve their online visibility and ranking.

Activism Intelligence & Activist Monitoring

We legally monitor and collect intelligence on individuals or groups that may pose a threat to your brand, organization, or personnel. At Reveille Advisors, we firmly believe in the rights afforded by the U.S. Constitution to every American. However, isolated pockets of bad actors can sometimes engage in increasingly destructive and violent behavior.

Our focus is on protecting innocent residents and civilians from harm and preventing the destruction of private property. This service is not politically motivated or partisan; it is rooted in promoting civility within communities.

We offer 30-minute consultations for you to share your challenges and we’ll determine what solutions are available. As always, discretion is provided and secure communication options are available. We’ll speak with you soon!
