27 Social Media Lessons From Barack Obama's Presidential CampaignObama’s entire vision and campaign was based upon walking the talk.

This included:

  1. Turning one-way directives into two-way interactions.
  2. Bypassing the mass media and talking directly to supporters and voters – The announcement of Joe Biden as Vice President was made to supporters first via SMS.
  3. Ensuring a welcoming tone was flavoured throughout the campaign –  Being inclusive and created a sense of  ‘We’  was pivotal to the supporters experience and all content was designed to reflect this.

Action : Be consistent and do the things you say you believe in.
