Since tomorrow is Election Day here in the U.S., this week’s roundup features seven posts from around the web focused on business lessons learned from politics.
Why: How has social media affected modern day politics? In this classic post, Mark Schaefer explores the positive and negative implications of “social polling.”
Why: State and government officials from all over the globe are using Twitter to connect with the public. Beth Kanter shares some revealing statistics from Twiplomacy’s 2014 study.
Why: At the end of the day, votes win the election. In this still relevant post, Heather Whaling illustrates the similarities between PR and political campaigns.
Why: Social media is influencing elections all over the world. Ancita Satija shares her experience during the 2014 Indian Elections.
Why: Innovative content can provide your campaign with a competitive edge. While this post (and example) are from last year, it’s still a great look by Ann Handley at an interesting political ad that broke the mold.
Why: Understanding and embracing the needs of the silent majority can boost your customer service ratings. Last year, Adam Toporek examined business lessons learned from former President Richard Nixon, and his post is as interesting of a read today.
