Short commutes, low cost-of-living and a median home price that’s 295% less than Seattle are a few selling points the City of Spokane is using in a new ad campaign called Hacking Washington. The campaign is aimed at convincing Seattleites to make the move to Spokane.

As Seattle home prices grow, some have turned to Spokane for relief—and a lower cost of living. The City of Spokane is trying to harness that in a new digital campaign it’s calling Hacking Washington.

“You used to think you could have it all in Washington,” announces the city-run landing page for the effort. “We still do.”

With the campaign, contracted to Spokane ad firms Chapter & Verse, Quinn, and Treatment, the city is targeting online ads to more than 500 specific small businesses and organizations, according to the Spokesman-Review.
