Well despite being a drab election, with some terrible ads, and nothing worth Tweeting about from the parties, at least the public had fun.
What has really influenced the voter to vote? Comedians like Russel Brand? Ed’s stone of promises? Those Tory posters? Social media spoofs? Someone knocking on your door? As elections go, it’s been the blandest yet with no memorable marketing form any party.
I do feel sorry for editors of the newspapers at the moment, there really is no spice to write about. Well maybe except Ed popping into to see Russell for a chat in his kitchen.
Politicians, despite their smart social media campaigns, are getting back to basics and back on their battle buses. Well, when they don’t break down that is!
It seems all the parties are making fun mocking videos but seriously, are they really going to change minds and voting? I doubt it.
They may come across as a bunch of eccentric butters, but with such a disillusioned voting public, they could pick up a lot of votes for fun.
Journalists may be trying to use Twitter as a way to measure public opinion but maybe Gogglebox would be more accurate. And is Twitter now a bit passé anyway?
The main strategy of the Tories seems to be less positive and more fear based, let’s scare the voter into worrying that Labour will take us back to the dark ages, which means you don’t actually have to promise anything at all.
As politicians and the media cultivating a fear of immigration, a campaign to fight Xenophobia is about to launch. And it’s the first crowd funded ad campaign in history.
Is the latest Labour Party ‘Women to Women’ marketing initiative convincing or condescending? It certainly isn’t winning over the female voters who mainly think it’s patronising.
