In an election campaign, addressing your audience at meetings and distributing leaflets in public places is no longer enough. Today, political life is taking technological devices by storm to deploy the scope of its message to voters. Digital is becoming unavoidable.
Digital tools and social networks have gradually transformed into persuasive devices intended to bring politics to life at any time of the day and night, seven days a week. And for the actors in the field, these innovations also promise great prospects for make their voices heard.
Digital, now essential
For several years, and in particular with the election of Barack Obama in 2008, the political sector has also integrated thein its processes to communicate with its audience and hope to increase its share of voters. But today, organizing citizen actions and building a committed movement is no longer confined to the creation of a Facebook page.
A digital presence strategy must be put in place to ensure the proximity expected by citizens but also to ensure more competitiveness: it will be to whoever is the most innovative and the most unifying.
Through this controlled digitization (because it is not a question of publishing everything and anything), authenticity and transparency take precedence. For those involved in civic life, it is an opportunity to promote a more open policy and to initiate a dialogue with young voters who do not necessarily use the traditional media (television, radio, newspapers) to learn about the political news.
Just use these toolswisely. Have a coherent speech. Listen to the desires, expectations and needs of the audience by analyzing the comments or messages received. Or stay flexible and don’t be afraid to direct the campaign according to the data and feedback collected. These are actions that will have the effect of putting in place a strategy that will lead to the maximum dissemination of ideas, sometimes opening the debate but above all encouraging Internet users to make decisions.
Another important element: time planning. Especially in our time when our attention is solicited from all sides and sometimes makes us indifferent to certain news. It then becomes necessary to inscribe the crucial stages of communication in time so that the ideas endure in the minds of the public and in the long term, are expressed at the ballot box.
