How Donald Trump USA President Used Social Media to Win Election

When Trump win 2016 Election, I remembered when a friend of mine was talking to me some years ago and he was telling me that social media will take over everything in the next 5years. Is not even up to 3years that he said it, and social media has now take over everything.  A girl was talking to her mother some week ago, telling her that she wants to open FaceBook account, 9years old…. That is serious.



Facebook has over 1billion registered user which means that if you want to reach that 1billion is very possible. But you don’t need to reach 1billion people before you can achieve what you need. Do you know that a twitter tweet can make millions of people notice you? That is power of social media.

 

Now, let’s talk on what United State president did to win 2016 Election

I don’t need to tell you when Donald Trump was born, how he went to school and how he got Degrees. You know we don’t need all this on Social media. Though Trump was very Brilliant back in school according to what I read.  What I want to tell you is how Donald Trump used social media in winning 2016 USA Election without any stress and how you can make use of that social media advantage especially when it’s free.

Donald Trump is very active on social media. And he has used that to gain many likes and followers on facebook and twitter. I don’t need to tell you that, those two social media are the best and easy way to reach people especially for politician. Trump tweet every day, even every hour and many of his campaign statements were controversial or false, generating much free media coverage.

When he became the president he said “Without the tweets, I wouldn’t be here, “I don’t have to go to the fake media.” The question you should ask yourself is; who are fake media? When Clinton was busy doing Radio, Television and Newspaper campaign, Trump was busy engaging people on social media that is why he said; “I think that social media has more power than the money they spent, and I think maybe to a certain extent, I proved that” Yes! He really proved it, even when election remain 12hours people still believed that Clinton will be the president, but people were surprised when they saw the result after election.

But there is so much of hatred on Trump, maybe because of all what he has promised to do, how he has promised to send some people back home etc. and because of this, they don’t want to vote for him. I watched one of Clinton facebook video sometime ago and I saw what someone commented on the video, this is the video url

Richard Penze Commented this on 8th Nov. 2016:  “God we know that you don’t intervene in world events as much as we would like you to but please on this election day free us once and for all from the hatred that is Donald J. Trump and open the hearts of voters all over this blessed country so that Hillary Clinton is elected president of the United States of America….” and he changed the topic on 9th. Here is what he later said: “Richard Penze… “My prayer was a bit different. I asked God to help our country pick the best candidate. It looks like his wisdom prevailed”

One thing is, Donald Trump will be seeing all these and he will keep on active on social media just to gain more people that will vote for him. The type of tweet and post he make helped him to win the election.  And God made him to be the president also. Keep on engaging people on social media, you might be people’s choice tomorrow because of the useful information you give out today.

Donald Trump has millions of followers on twitter and millions of likes on his facebook page likewise Clinton but Trump is very popular than Clinton because he believed the power of social media presence than Television or Radio presence and he know the best social media platform that can make him reach his goals.

I want us to start from facebook. With my Researched Clinton have 10,149,902 facebook likes you can check it  here, her post is been shared more than Trump post, she always hit over 200k post or photo comment but I don’t think non of her post reach 400k comment. Sometime more than 1m likes. You know she is a lady and man will always like what woman post than what man post.

The only thing that Trump has more than Clinton on facebook is likes and comment. I think that comment is as a result of his millions likes. He has 22,097,045 Facebook likes you can check that here, more than two times of Clinton. And his comment always reaches 500k sometime more than 700k. I think if it’s Clinton that has that amount of likes, she will be having over 1million comment because she is a female.

Now, let’s look at Twitter. Clinton has 14.2m followers on twitter. Click here to see her account  Clinton usually have over 300 reply on twitter, 200-500 retweet and over 2000likes which is very far to that of Trump. I think Trump used twitter to win election, not facebook.  Trump has 28.5m followers on twitter and he has tweeted over 34.8k tweet compared to Clinton who has less than 10k tweet. Trump always hit over 44k replied, 50k retweet and more than 500k likes. You can check his profile here.  Can you see the different?

When it comes to making people been engaged on topic, I think twitter is the best if you know how to use it. But for business promotion, facebook will always remain the best platform. One thing I noticed is; Trump has been building and engaging audience on social media for a long time but Clinton did not know the power of social media, she believed on traditional advert. “Is not when you need friend help that you start looking for friend, look for friend now for you to make use of them tomorrow.”

Let’s say you are planning to go for any political appointment on the next election which is 2019, the best time to start engaging people is now. You don’t tell them your plan at first, keep updating them, give them useful information. If possible start a skill program that will help your community, update this on your social media account. People will comment, share and like it and this will make your message go viral. Within short period of time, they begin to know you, like you and when you announce your intension, they will not have choice than to accept it and follow you.  The Question is; “Are you on social media”
