Political Marketing

Political marketing is a fundamental part of political life. Presidents and prime ministers; politicians and parties; government departments and local city councils all use marketing in their pursuit of political goals.

Market research is used, when deciding on policies and service design, to understand what the people they serve and seek votes from want and need. Voter profiling further helps create new segments to target; strategy guides creation of the political brand to develop an attractive vision; internal marketing guides the provision of volunteer involvement; analytics and experimental research test and refine communication messages; and delivery management sets expectations and helps to convey progress once a politician is elected or a program has begun.

As an area of academic research and teaching, political marketing is a modern and dynamic field that seeks to understand, learn from, comment on and even influence such behavior.

Political marketing also attracts public attention and debate. It has become the focus of many recent movies such as Game Change, The Iron Lady, The Ides of March and No; as well as TV series such as The West Wing, VEEP and Scandal which cover strategy, branding, positioning, crisis management and polling, and raise ethical issues of authenticity, targeting ethnic minorities and gender.
