22 August - 12:57

“Twitter is how [Trump] talked to the people, Facebook was going to be how he won”, — Brad Parscale, Trump’s digital director (the Guardian interview).

Winning The White House: analysis of micro-targeting in PR during the pre-election PR company of Donald Trump.
How can micro-targeting be applied to business? Cases of Dome inc., Salon Betty, UrbanStems.
The current approaches to micro-targeting in the crypto industry: on the example of Haken’s PR activity.

It’s no secret that Facebook allows political campaigns to target voters very specifically — whether based on their address or their interests. The Trump presidential campaign spent most of its digital advertising budget on Facebook, testing more than 50,000 ad variations each day in an attempt to micro-target voters. So how micro-targeting is applied now and how it’s changing the world of politics and business in XXI century? Let’s talk with our guests from Capitol Hill.
