How do politics benefit from its own mobile app?
The first ever political mobile app was launched by Barack Obama for his presidential run. The app allowed users to contact other friends from different districts, had a news feed section, donation interface, and other features to inform about events taking place. This initiative by America’s Ex-President Obama was highly successful and showed surprising results. After all, nobody had thought about it before. Once this app came into limelight, all the political parties all over the world started going for a political mobile app. And this is how mobile app development companies got another domain to flourish in.
Creating AwarenessPoliticians need to create awareness about their political agendas and future plans. An app for political action helps create awareness about the upcoming events. The more the people know about the candidate’s intentions, the better opinion they will form.
EngagementThe more supports learn about politicians, the better engagement on the app. When candidates express their honest ideas, believes and encourage supporters to put in their thoughts as well, it makes the candidate look super friendly. Engagement in an app will bring more awareness to the general public.
FundraisingWhen Obama launched the first-ever political app, he had a vision of using the app to raise money for campaigns. Many politicians use mobile apps to raise money for a good cause. The public is more than happy to contribute little sums of money for the betterment of the whole. Even a little sum of contribution by a large group of people can result in huge funds. This fund can be put to great use by the politicians.
