This book brings together leading scholars to analyze political marketing in the context of the UK 2015 General Election. Election campaigns represent a time of intense marketing, including: the communication of party, party leader and candidate brands; the design and dissemination of key messages and policy proposals; identification of target voters; setting out strategies for the campaign; and translating strategies into specific communication tactics. Each chapter of this book has been specifically commissioned to focus on one of these aspects of the campaign (targeted campaigning, branding, core messages, advertising, media management, online campaigning and the campaign in the marginal seats). The collection offers insights into the most interesting and innovative aspects of the 2015 election campaign, determining how levels parties with differing resource approach elections and with what impacts, as well as what we can learn more broadly about marketing at general elections. The chapters are developed to make the topic accessible to non-scholars and to have real-world relevance.

This edited collection is one of the first books to focus on the distinctive political marketing and branding strategies utilized by the candidates and their parties in one of the most gripping elections in U.S. history. It considers why this election was so unusual from a political marketing perspective, calling for new explanations and discussions about its implications for mainstream political marketing theory and practice. At a time of political upheaval, candidates from both parties – Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders in particular – have appeared to overturn the conventional wisdom that has hitherto dominated U.S. politics: that candidates should appear ‘presidential’, be politically experienced and qualified to run for office, and avoid controversial and politically incorrect positions. This book presents scholarly perspectives and research with practitioner-relatable content on practices and discourses that look specifically at the Trump, Clinton and Sanders campaigns and how they took current understandings of political marketing and branding in new directions.

A guiding principle in creating Political Marketing has been to examine the ways in which culture, politics, and society interrelate in the field of political marketing. In the course of the book, the editors and contributors consider ‘culture’ as a distinctive concept with transformative capacities that need further and deeper development in the engineering of the political marketing process. This may be introduced and, consequently, lead to broad formulation of a ‘campaign culture’. Indeed, understanding and adapting a broader ‘campaign culture’, political marketing models may be seen as sets of pathways of key resources resulting viability in human assets, forms of influence, class stratification, alternative flows of information or networking and intercultural knowledge – sharing activity. This book consists of 18 chapters which deal with aspects of political marketing and ‘campaign culture.’ Theoretical chapters are found first, followed by two chapters that deal with theoretical issues which became a subject of research. Next presented are the articles that study aspects of electoral behavior, followed by the papers that analyze aspects of nationalism & national identity. Finally, the book concludes with three case studies on various issues in political marketing.

"It has been almost 40 years since John F. Kennedy campaigned for the presidency and introduced a revolutionary approach to campaigning that involved the latest, sophisticated marketing and communication strategies. If Kennedy were alive today and approaching his eightieth birthday, he would no doubt be amazed and intrigued to witness the way in which modern political campaigning has changed since he first redefined the process in 1960. Indeed, the advances and changes in political campaigning and marketing over the past 40 years parallel the explosive innovations that have been made in so many other fields with ties to technology, such as communication, science, and medicine. Today, political campaigns at all levels, from national races to state and local contests, depend on increasingly sophisticated marketing techniques." --Peter D. Hart, President, Peter D.

Find out the real impact political marketing has on the democratic process Winning Elections with Political Marketing is a unique look at the election process on both sides of the Atlantic, providing rare insight into how modern political communication and marketing strategies are used in the United States and the United Kingdom. The leading political researchers present a cross-section of their latest findings, augmented with easy-to-read tables, charts, and figures, and reinforced with extensive references and bibliographies. The book addresses the key issues that define the interplay between political marketing and the electorate in both countries, including advertising, research methods and cross-cultural research results, political choice behavior, imagery management, the integration of business and social science theory, and the impact of political marketing on democracy. While the national election cycles of the two countries may be fundamentally different, their election processes share one thing in common-a trend toward “permanent campaigning” through embedded marketing tactics that’s becoming standard practice in the United States and the United Kingdom. Winning Elections with Political Marketing examines the theoretical underpinnings of policy development, the characteristics of a successful political candidate, political marketing from the perspective of the voters, campaign finance regulations, and the effects of technological changes on political communication. Winning Elections with Political Marketing looks at: The Political Triangle determining market intelligence class, rhetoric, and candidate portrayal voter perceptions the role of President as party leader lobbying constituent communication voter behavior grass roots campaigns political consulting the Internet and e-newsletters the advantages of public funding and a study of the United States presidential primaries from 1976 to 2004 Winning Elections with Political Marketing is an essential resource for political practitioners, researchers, and scholars, candidates seeking political office, lobbyists, political action groups, public relations professionals, journalists, fundraisers, advertising specialists, and anyone with an interest in the political process.

Political parties worldwide are using marketing tools such as targeting and segmentation to win elections. Are these strategies making politicians and governments more responsive to voters' needs, or do they pose a threat to democracy? Through case studies that range from the resurrection of the Conservative Party to Tim Hortons as a political brand, this volume shows that the consequences of political marketing in Canada have been profound. Citizens are now viewed as consumers, and platforms and promises have been repackaged as products. Whether this trend is positive or negative depends on how politicians and governments carry out political marketing � and its promises � in practice.
