Digital Strategy data - Digital Intelligence April 2010

The use of the web by politicians has been underwhelming, but the current UK elections are still the most digital. Here’s why...

Social media reached out to a new generation and told them to vote. The Electoral Commission used simple digital marketing tactics to reach the right people (youngsters not yet registered), in the right media space (Facebook), with the right offer (one click to register). Simple, brilliant, game-changing.

Secondly, digital analytics came into their own for the first time. Old-style telephone polling and street surveys are over. Instead social media monitoring provided granular insights into every sound-bite and every gesture from the leaders of the three main political parties. Online polls from YouGov have been fighting with new social media monitoring tools, while live social media trackers run alongside TV debates. They’ve given politicians an unprecedented window into their own electability - and like all good marketers, politicians have quickly applied those lessons.

Digital strategies work throughout the marketing mix - from researching customer insights, to changing brand preference, through building buzz and engagement, sale and ongoing support.

Reuters was among the first media groups to deliver content digitally, with their own networks pre-dating the web. The migration into web publishing in the 90s was a natural stepping stone, but for a business that made heavyweight revenues from supplying news feeds to publishers and broadcasters, their consumer-facing channels have been relatively small scale till now given the size of the Thomson Reuters machine behind them.
