Tips for Political Campaign Strategies

Political Campaign Strategies to win Election India

Political campaign strategy should be 20% strategy and 80% implementation. That said, as you set out on your political campaign journey, now is a great time to do a lot of that campaign strategy.

n short, the earlier you start campaigning, the better. The best politicians are always managing their distributed organizing campaigns (if only in their own heads), by building relationships, figuring out their future campaign stance based on what they hear, and so on.

However, if we are talking about your upcoming election then we will want to start assembling your team and figuring out your campaign strategy as early as is allowable. All of your campaign elements like donations, number of campaign team members, voters contacted, etc. will benefit from having a longer lead time.

Action tip: Set a countdown clock to election day that reminds you of how long you have left to convince your electorate.

Competitor Analysis

Competitor analysis is essential in any contest. A good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of your opponents can give you a huge advantage in building your campaign messaging, and campaign strategies, in head-to-head debates, and in undermining their campaign message when necessary.


Action tip: Develop your competitor analysis worksheet to capture where you stand in relation to other candidates in the race. On a spreadsheet list strengths and weaknesses of all candidates including yourself. On the same spreadsheet itemize each candidate’s position on the key topics in the election. In this way, you will clarify where you are strong, and where you are vulnerable and be clear about your campaign messaging in relation to your competitors.
