As a follow-up to my earlier blog Red…Blue…on the big cloud, you have to tip your hat to the most amazing use of web marketing seen in an election campaign! Both parties exercised incredible techniques to move us to vote and raise money for their respective campaigns. So if you’re thinking my blog is a week late here’s the deal…even today…well after the Obama victory they still are masters of the web.
My inbox is still being pinged with requests for donations and grass roots efforts to support the movement and now the victory. Not a day has gone by since the election that I haven’t received some type of email correspondence from the Obama team which leads me to think my box may be hit up every day for the next four years 🙂 UGHH!
If I wasn’t admiring the techniques…I may have a negative reaction to my sacred inbox being overloaded. I’m not sure when I should start considering this spam. Oh well…it goes without saying that we have all been witness to some masterful brand, social marketing, web marketing, organizational grass roots skills and fundraising throughout the campaign. And apparently…beyond! So…it’s time to write a book…along with the zillion others who will be analyzing this time in our modern digital history.
