LEARNINGS FOR SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETERS w Innovate to Attract Social Media Influencers New ways of engagement can attract a lot more social media users and influencers. AAP’s replica of Obama’s campaign strategy in India exactly did this. The use of Google+ Hangouts gave them a huge opportunity to engage with voters and members on the booth. While, BJP’s use of Android applications was very popular among users. Use a Combination of Social Media Platforms Increase the overall impact of your campaign by combining it with multiple platforms and then linking each platform. AAP’s Thunderclap was linked to Twitter and Facebook. BJP linked Narendar Modi’s Google+ Hangouts to Twitter hashtags and Facebook pages to create a buzz and gathered over 2,00,000+ views on the hangout promotion videos. The party managed to get over 20,000 questions through various mediums including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. and websites Timing Matters If your competitors are throwing in some interesting campaigns and content, get inspired. Observe their strategy to know what’s working for their community, what’s trending in their circles and how they are implementing it. Do not hesitate to start your own campaigns . Congress, which was the least popular party on social media, missed the buzz due to lack of initiatives when AAP and BJP were very active across platforms. 14
