  • The Social Media Showdown Between Donald Trump And Hillary Clinton in Marketing: Politics on 08/25/2015

    The next U.S. presidential election may be over a year away, but the race to select party candidates is on. On the left, Hillary Clinton seems to be the most-likely contender for the Democratic party's nomination as of yet. On the right, the story is a bit more complicated. Donald Trump has said that he may end up running as an independent, but he certainly is making the most noise of any conservatives running.

    The 2016 U.S. presidential race is shaping up to be extremely competitive, particularly for GOP candidates.

  • Hillary Clinton's Presidential Campaign Launches On Social in Marketing: Politics on 04/28/2015

    As the preeminent figure-to-date in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, Hillary Clinton has had a very memorable beginning to her campaign on social media.

But interestingly enough, she hasn't followed the same path that some other politicians have when it comes to her social strategy. Let's take a look at what Hillary's been doing.

  • U.S. Elections Could Shape These Industries Differently Than Others in Marketing: Politics on 03/24/2015

  • Planting The Digital Seeds For The 2016 Presidential Campaign in Marketing: Politics on 02/24/2015

    With Jeb Bush announcing his intention to run for President of the United States and Hillary Clinton all but confirming she's pursuing the position herself, we've now found ourselves with two likely candidates for the 2016 races. There's still certainly a long way to go before the Democratic and Republican parties name their presidential nominees, but with the attention Bush and Clinton are already receiving, there's no question that they'll play a big part in the excitement around campaign season.

  • How The White House Uses YouTube in Marketing: Politics on 11/25/2014

    Political entities are just like the rest of us. They have had to adapt to the social media age. Now, digital, generally, and social, specifically, are the building blocks of campaigns. Video, once only accessible while parked in front of a TV, is now arguably a larger and more important component of the 24-hour-news cycle as a result of always-on platforms like YouTube. Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram allow people to publish anything from anywhere anytime - often to the great dismay of the official in front of the camera.
