"Winning a presidential election is like operating a successful business. The best and most successful businesses are customer driven. The Marketing of the President documents how political candidates are marketed by the same sophisticated techniques that experts use to sell legal and medical services. Newman addresses issues of serious concern to the health of the political process as he examines the roles of positioning, polling, direct mail, 900 numbers, and television in advertising. Using the 1992 presidential election as a case study, this extraordinary volume reveals how the American political process has been transformed - for better or worse - by the use of marketing techniques." "The Marketing of the President important reading for marketing professionals and students interested in nonprofit applications of marketing concepts, or for political scientists and policymakers who are concerned about the increasing role of marketing in political campaigns."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by BNewman, Bruce I. is the author of 'Marketing of the President Political Marketing As Campaign Strategy' with ISBN 9780803951389 and ISBN 0803951388.
