A gimmick. A stunt. It will ruin her career as a lawyer. That’s what some are saying about Mindy Meyer’s “pink” campaign as a conservative candidate for the New York state Senate. Here is her pink website http://mindymeyer4senate.com/?tw_p=twt
The critics may be right. However, Image Marketing Consultants recommends you not not miss the marketing lessons embedded here. Out of nowhere, this 22-year-old New York law student is getting national media attention, including from the influential POLITICO http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0712/78871.html With statements like “The Senate’s not just a bunch of old people” – Meyer can become the under-30 Sarah Palin – the voice of a new generation of conservatives.
The lessons? Here are 3:
- Positioning and packaging are everything. Most leaders, causes, products, and services are essentially similar. The best marketing communications win the day.
- Take smart risks. At her age, Meyer has nothing to lose and everything to gain.
- Look, talk, walk youthful. That has nothing to do with age. No one thinks of Hillary Clinton as old.
