  1. Scope of Political Marketing

    http://www.political-marketing.net Offer political Marketing Services

    Political Marketing is being used and implemented with different names and different shapes since centuries. In 1950 Political Marketing was defined as a separate subject please sees history of Political Marketing for reference and details.

    Still this subject is in developing phase and need to do a lot to formally recognize Political Marketing as separate subject. In my point of view Political Marketing is highly significant in all countries especially in democrat governments and more especially to developed countries. Political Marketing is essential for political parties, leaders, government and as well as for general public. Political Marketing brings stability in political culture of a country that in return brings prosperity in national economy at root and gross level. Without Political Marketing or misuse of Political Marketing it is really intricate to better understand public needs and it is so intricate to create and develop good governance in a society.

    Visit http://www.political-marketing.net for more details

    To better understand the scope of Political Marketing I would like to quote two examples. 1st for the country where Political Marketing is being implement since many years and in contrast to this the another country where Political culture is not developed yet in parties as well as political leaders are not aware about Political Marketing.

    On 1st hand I will like to quote USA. Where we can see very clear that Americans are implementing Political Marketing since many years in America, before elections the candidates create and develop a philosophy for their election campaign. So they are clear about what they are communicating in their dialogue. At all level their philosophy remains same, their goals, mission and objective does not change, audience to audience and place to place.

    What ever they communicate for coalition parties or public, in New York or in any other state, the theme of their communication at all level remains same because they are well prepared, we can

    Yes…an article that PERFECTLY articulates my feelings about Imran Khan. No one can deny that as a social worker he is the best–his cancer hospital is truly world class and I’ve heard NOTHING bad about it.

    However, his vision and political flip flopping leave so much to be desired. He’s no dummy but true courage would mean challenging the status quo in an intelligent way and not apologizing (or appearing to) to the Taliban and extremists. Imran, you are above this.

    My friend. i just wana say you that you say Pragmatism and all that..i ask you why Our beloved Prophet (S.A.W) adopted the way of struggle as he was also offered so many things for which he said If you place Sun on right and moon on left hand even then i wont stop my mission. dont take it as religious thing take it as wordly struggle. He would have started to oblige tribesman and their lords to bring change..why did he started by Hazrat Bilal , Abu Bakar ( may Allah be pleased with them). If he had joined Musharraf or Nawaz Sharif then whats the point to make a new party..We have to be visionary that on one hand we say these are corrupt and dont want change and then we join them to bring change..its a contradiction in terms. I ask supporters of Musharraf that what change he brought in his tenure..though i also supported him initialy and felt blessing in disguise as we were sick of our politicians..but what he did laters..we were sick of PPP and PML but he joined both of them..i ask u was Faisal Saleh Hayat a new face or sheikh rasheed? Aftab Sher Pao or Wattu? Wasi Zafar or Mqm? we have to open our hearts and minds then we can understand what is the reality and what is the way to bring about a change.

    Dear Aqil Sajjad, from your article it reveals clearly that not Imran Khan but you are a confused guy with lack of analytical skills. If according to you, Imran Khan is not directly and openly opposing Talibans, then same is the case for you. Neither a full support for him nor a complete disagreement!!!!
    Imran Khan is the only ray of hope for the politically deceived public of Pakistan and nation has associated hopes with him now. You follow the same negative strategy of power politics with compromising on the principles, as you mentioned in your articles that joining hands with Nawaz Sharif jsut for a bunch of seats was a suitable option for Imran Khan. If he had done so, then what the difference between him and other cunning hypocrite politicians of Pakistan??
    The Imran Khan’s stance over military operation is very justifiable if you go back into the history of such operations!! Look at the 1971 East Pakistan operation–resulting into the partitioning of the country. Look at the Baluchistan operation–resulting into the anti-Pakistan sentiments in the general public of that provicne, look at the Lal Masjid operation–resulting in a high rise of terror activities in the country.
    Fire and bullets never bring peace and harmony rather they have very bad ripple effect which further worsens the scene. This is the philosophy of Imran Khan and we LOVE IT.
    IMRAN KHAN ZINDABAD

    dear Aqil,
    If you correctly think that Imran Khan is the only sincere leader on the political horizon, then why not join PTI and try to iron out the shortcomings that you see in him. I am sure there is nothing that cant be changed. And Imran Khan is about change, change the current rotten political system where a good politician is the one who can more easily deceive people.

    If you think that you’ll get a politician who is tailor made to your requirements, is sincere, talks and acts just as you think; then that is not going to happen. You have to start with a good person, support him and polish him. Just writing these articles condemning the only sincere “politician’s” shortcomings wont help anyone.
