  9. 9. eCRM <ul><li>Obama used hosted CRM software to facilitate feedback from citizens on the Citizen’s Briefing Book. The most popular ideas were then delivered to the President. </li></ul><ul><li>This encouraged a dialogue with voters. </li></ul><ul><li>Users of the site also encouraged to share their economic crisis story on the site. </li></ul>

  13. 13. The Scale and Reach of the Campaign <ul><li>“ No other presidential campaign ever utilised the Internet so innovatively” (Karen Tumulty, TIME magazine). </li></ul><ul><li>Raised a record of $750 million dollars almost entirely from individual donors using a modern, grass roots strategy powered mostly by email marketing. </li></ul><ul><li>“ ... 25 per cent of people who 'pulled the lever' for Obama on election day were already connected to him electronically&quot; (Temsamani, GM Google Australia and New Zealand). </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>The advantages of Internet fund raising are that it is quick, cheap and far less intimidating for political novices than writing a big cheque. </li></ul><ul><li>This was important for Obama’s campaign since his success rested upon mobilising the vote of many poor, young, ethnic minorities who had previously been politically apathetic. </li></ul><ul><li>The internet provided a new way in which these groups could interact with the campaign from the comfort of their homes and offices. </li></ul>
  15. 15. What can other Companies Learn? <ul><li>Capitalise on new technologies quickly </li></ul><ul><li>Strategic thinking </li></ul><ul><li>Integrate internet tools with other activities </li></ul><ul><li>The customer as an individual is key </li></ul>
