How does Decision Intelligence compare to market research?
Decision Intelligence is an emerging discipline, and many teams may be accustomed to market research solutions. Check out “Decision Intelligence vs. Market Research” to learn how these approaches are different and which is right for you.
The difference between Decision Intelligence and data analytics
“Data analytics” has become a popular buzzword in the business world, and political campaigns have also started to embrace it. Data analytics involves collecting, processing and analyzing data to inform decisions. However, it does not consider the human element and subjective factors that influence decision-making. This is where Decision Intelligence comes in.
Decision Intelligence combines data analytics with social and psychological research to analyze potential voters’ decision-making process. By doing so, it provides a more complete understanding of voter behavior, which can help political campaigns make more informed decisions.
Monitor and predict shifts in voter sentiment
One of the key benefits of Decision Intelligence in political marketing is the ability to observe and anticipate changes in voter sentiment. By monitoring this, political campaigns can quickly identify emerging issues and adjust their messaging and marketing strategy accordingly. This can help political parties and candidates stay ahead of the curve and respond to changing voter sentiment in real time.
Monitor candidate approval ratings in real time
Candidate approval ratings help political campaigns stay on track and ensure they’re resonating with potential voters. Decision Intelligence technology can provide candidate approval ratings in real time through survey data collection and sentiment analysis, allowing political campaign staff to identify effective messaging and marketing strategies and quickly respond to negative sentiment.
Inform messaging and marketing channels with target audience research
To win over potential voters, political campaigns need to communicate messaging effectively. This requires a deep understanding of their target audience.
Through high-frequency survey research, sentiment analysis and predictive modeling, Decision Intelligence can help political campaign staff form a comprehensive understanding of potential voters’ interests, preferences and behavior. This will allow them to tailor their messaging and marketing channels to their target audience, making it more likely that their message will resonate and secure support.

Optimize political campaign budgeting
Political campaigns need a significant amount of funding to be successful. Decision Intelligence can help political campaigns optimize their budget by analyzing the return on investment of different marketing channels. By doing so, campaign staff can identify which channels are most effective at reaching potential voters and allocate their budget accordingly. This can help political campaigns ensure that they are getting the best ROI for their marketing efforts.
Improve political marketing campaign performance
Decision Intelligence provides the necessary scale, speed, flexibility and context in which to test campaign elements, such as tailoring, targeting and messaging, to either course-correct or optimize, allowing political campaign staff to secure more support and ultimately win over potential voters.
