Psychographic profiling wins elections

The world is changing. In fact, it has already changed.the days where the likes of Don Draper and the creative MADMEN would dream up one or two ad campaigns to win your hearts and minds and ultimately a share of your wallet are over.
Whilst the fun and creativity are still there the guesswork isn't. Now in digital, direct and data-driven marketing, we can not only take the guesswork out of our marketing campaigns but by utilising behavioural science and psychographics we can tailor that message and segment it by the user profile. Meaning two different people in the same home could be delivered two completely different adverts on the same topic. With the connection of big data and the Internet of Things and programmatic advertising we can also ensure the right ad is shown at the exactly the right time reducing cost and increasing the return on investment.
On top of this if you add in monitoring the data analytics to refine and improve you can maximise the return on investment.
This is modern day behavioural marketing and it is the future.
It is being used to win political election campaigns and if you are a politician you ignore it at your peril. If you are asking how Trump won this is the answer. If you are sat wondering how Brexit happened, this is the answer.

As a digital and data driven marketing professional that utilises behavioural science insights I am all too close and aware of these technologies. But I wonder whether anyone is stopping to ask "just because we can do it does it mean we should?" Apart from helping spread the word about this site I work primarily in the business to business field. I do this because between businesses all if fair in love and war, that is to say procurement officers and strategic buyers are as equally versed in the marketing techniques and persuasion techniques of the sales and marketing industry, plus there is usually a team of people making a decision. In this scenario as much data and as much persuasion as need it standard. But when we are dealing with business to consumer or in the above video political party to voter and general public this is an entirely different ball game.
This is advanced manipulation on a large scale and an abuse of the technologies and sciences involved. Digital behavioural marketers and data scientists should be asking "is this right?" "Is this ethical?" "Is this fair?"
I am sure it pays well but a big pay check should not mean we leave our morals at the door. And yeah if this guys company didn't do it someone else would but that doesn't make it ok.

About is a FREE social network, blog site, and chat forum for people that cannot sleep or with sleep related issues that they live with. It’s a place to chat, post blogs and join in forum debates and discussions about you experiences with insomnia, sleeplessness and life in general.

It is not a place offering you a cure. We open debates and discuss our ideas and theories as well as things that have and have not worked well for us but we do not try and “fix you” because first off we don’t think you are broken.

But its not just about insomnia. It is a place to express yourself creatively if you wish, express your thoughts and opinions on what is going on in the world.. the things that are keeping you up at night..

We do believe that the first step to living a healthy, enjoyable and rewarding life with insomnia is learning acceptance of it as part of your life whilst not letting define your life. But from there it really is up to you as to what works for you as an individual.

We bring our experience of 20+ years living with insomnia ourselves as well as the studies into areas of psychology, neuro-linguistic programming, meditation and sociology to see if we can shed some light onto what is happening and maybe give some ideas as to tips and tricks that may help you.

Unfortunately the owners of this site cannot be on here managing it 24/7 and so may not be able to be on the live chat at all times. As this is not funded by a business we have day jobs to do and so as of yet have not found a way to be on here when the majority of our users in the US are because we are based in the UK.

We suggest the best way to be a part of the community is to share your experiences on your blog on your personal page. You can also customise your page to suit your tastes and show a bit of individuality.

We expect respect for all. Keep the content relatively clean and mostly enjoy being part of a community that is growing in voice about the condition of insomnia. Please post and share our content around the social media outlets around the web and let the message be heard.

Most of all enjoy in the acceptance of your insomnia and the knowledge that it does not define you.

Please note: you will never receive any emails from us asking you to buy a product or service, or for your bank account details in any way shape or form, if we were in this for the money we would have left years ago, if you receive anything like this it is SPAM and should be deleted and reported to Vincent D either on my profile page or through a direct message in the internal mailing system.  Thank you.
