Election campaigning: digital vs traditional Which strategy is better?

The margin of error is very small when you walk over the political streets. Sometimes just a few hundred votes will decide whether you will become the voice of the common man or have to wait for the next election. If you don’t want to take any unwanted risk with your political campaign, then you should have a sound marketing strategy. Election campaigning is not a child’s play any more as you have to work hard for every single vote. Scholar politicians have their own experiences regarding different marketing strategies. But the most prominent question that can strike in the mind of any young aspirant is- Which campaigning strategy is better digital or traditional? So let’s compare both the marketing models to find the best one.

Man to man-marking

The political battles are completely based on your contact with the common man. In the 20th century door-to-door visit is considered as the most important element of any election campaign, usually, candidates visit every household to give a personal touch to their campaign. It is no doubt best strategy, but can you implement this in the present scenario? Well not at all, first, if you are campaigning for Vidhan Sabha or Lok Sabha elections then you have to cover a huge area in few days which is not that easy, for local elections it may be adopted till some extent. Second, when you visit a house in noon, whom will you address? Everyone would be at their respective workplaces or travelling or in colleges.

Public interactions

The trend of huge political rallies is still prevalent in our nation, but only the party workers can explain- how much effort they put, to gather huge crowds for such rallies?

If you adopt the digital marketing campaign for election, then you can address the people of the whole country with the help of videos. It will not only save your time but reduce expenditure as well.
