Five Things You Can Learn From An Electoral Campaign For Your Brandby Purvi Dalvi Writer
Brand promotion is essential to accelerate sales and create a large customer pool. Here we are drawing similarities between an election campaign and brand promotions. Following are the five things to learn from an election campaign strategy:
Historical analysis : Past election results and surveys matter a lot to formulate plans for an active campaign in the current year. It helps in understanding the voting pattern and many other things about potential voters. Same goes with a consumer. Their past behavior and study of their shopping patterns are very important while planning a marketing strategy for the product.
Understanding customers : When political parties plan their election campaign strategy, their primary target is their existing supporters who they want to retain at any cost. Similarly, it is imperative for the brand to maintain its customer base who will not only consume the product but also will help in expanding the customer base. It is critical to understand their need and evaluate the feedback for a better understanding of the market. It is also essential to evaluate what your competitors are offering in the same segment and how the customer is reacting to it. In the electoral campaign, all political parties keep an eye on their opposition and monitor their progress to strategize their move.
Resource planning : It takes a lot of effort and planning to manage human and financial resources available with the organization. All the political parties use their limited workforce resources with utmost caution. Similarly, brands can take a cue from this to manage their limited resources carefully and optimize their functionality with the help of reputation management consultants. Perfect timing to launch any campaign is the key to the successful promotion of the brand and the candidate. If you start such developments too early, it will lose the fizz after a point, and if you wait for too long, there will be less outreach.
Content based on data : The promises that the candidates in an election make to the voters depend on the data collected by their research team, which manages the information from the voters about their demands and other issues in the constituency. While you run a campaign, it is imperative to understand the customers so that you know their needs well.
Add influencers : Influencers can help in pulling the crowd. They play a vital role in formulating an election campaign strategy, that sometimes converts into votes. If some famous artist campaigns for a candidate, voters might get intimidated and vote for them. Similarly, if an influencer promotes your product, the visibility will increase, and it is more likely that consumers will try the product.
