Opposition Research & Competitive Intelligence

At Reveille Advisors, we have a passion for performing targeted research into the competitors, adversaries, and opposition of our clients and their interests. Utilizing Human Intelligence (HUMINT), Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) and public records, online software and data platforms, social media, forums, and other legal methods of data and intelligence collection, we will pull the curtain back on your challengers.

Opposition Research

Opposition research gets a bad rap due to so many misconceptions about it, but simply put, it’s 100% legal and doesn’t break any laws to procure. It just takes a personable and skilled investigator to unearth the little details your competitors or adversaries hoped would go unnoticed. 

We perform opposition research by using human intelligence (HUMINT) methods and open-source intelligence (OSINT) techniques to lawfully discover and collect valuable information within various jurisdictions. Opposition research will commonly include elements about a target’s property records, business interests, legal past, professional history and reputation, media coverage, social life, associates, and social media activity. Maybe it’s a candidate saying they’re running for the “working man” only to realize they have vacation homes in a spouse’s name on some island. What about the person running on a “just say no” campaign that has quietly invested in legal cannabis growing operations? The world is full of hypocritical charlatans, we just hope to expose them!

Competitive Intelligence

In-depth research about all facets of your competition is not limited to political campaigns, as it’s equally alive within most business sectors. The researchers at Reveille Advisors routinely look into why a client’s rival may be more effective than them, outperforming them with market share, or achieving more brand awareness and visibility. We’re happy to investigate their business practices, who their suppliers are, real estate footprints and purchases, talent acquisition strategies, employee rosters, and more. 

Additionally, we routinely perform one-off research projects that are specific to your unique situation. If you’re curious about our capabilities with regard to your scenario, we’d be happy to chat with you and let you know if it’s something we can accomplish. Naturally, discretion will be provided for those we cannot serve.

Finally, an area we specialize in includes online brand visibility audits for businesses of all sizes. We have experienced SEO consultants in-house who analyze why Google favors one website over another. They do this by doing direct comparisons between your online assets and the competition. Most people don’t realize how much revenue is reliant on being featured on Google’s first page of the Search results. Businesses come to us when they want to learn how to improve that. What’s comforting is that most things can be reverse-engineered for our success and have a path towards resolution. Whether it’s technical issues with your site’s coding or missteps with your site’s formatting and content, we’ll find it and correct the course!

Activism Intelligence & Activist Monitoring

We will legally monitor and collect any and all intelligence on those individuals or groups that wish to do your brand, organization, or personnel harm. We are firm believers in the rights afforded by the U.S. Constitution for each American, but all too commonly you will see isolated pockets of bad actors within a group who go overboard with increasingly destructive and violent behavior. We aren’t narcs, but we also don’t like seeing innocent residents and civilians being put in harm’s way or having their private property destroyed in the process.

This is not politically motivated and isn’t partisan, it’s based on civility within communities.
