Digital Political Campaign
By: Kramer Caswell
As the first primary elections begin to take place, many campaigns are trying to jump start theirmid-term advertising to get ahead of the opponent. It’s not unlikely that your campaign manager has suggested using online resources for advertising, but running a digital political campaign is more than just reaching voters on social media. How important is it to use digital marketing in your political campaign? In 2018, the answer is: extremely important.
Looking back at the 2016 election, one can infer that an efficient digital political campaign was critical for that election cycle. In fact, Brad Parscale, Donald Trump’s Digital Media Strategist, increased the digital budget for the campaign to $8.4 million in the last 80 days of the Presidential Election. This money was utilized, not only on Facebook, but through other mediums like display advertising.
When it comes to getting out the vote (GOTV), having as many touch points as possible is essential. With digital display and video advertisements, planting the idea into a voters head for turning out on election day can be a powerful advertising method.
