Seems to be a general consensus that folks either love or hate “The Donald” and most think he’s a blow-hard, a real Buffoon in fact!
I see something different. I see Trump orchestrating one of the most impressive business moves of the century!
Whiskey Tango, Frisco!
Think about it. Whether he wins or loses the nomination he has gotten publicity that no amount of money could ever buy. People have a certain respect for the man. He stands for something and he’s not afraid to call bullshit on issues and people. And he voices what many are thinking but not saying.
The Donald is more like a honey badger when it comes to being P.C…he doesn’t give a F*#k. And a lot of folks feel the same way which helps them align with and vote for him. And a lot of folks rail against the man because of his stance on many issues.
And what about all of his businesses?
Mixed reviews actually but there isn’t any real data to determine if/how much the demand for Trumps various businesses has increased or not.
My gut says that in spite of the fact he has surely alienated a lot of potential clients/customers he has/is also creating a polarizing mystique about all things “Trump”.
Interesting to watch and a lot we can learn as marketers…hey maybe I should run for some sort of office, say a bunch of wild and inflammatory stuff and see if/how it impacts my business?
Whatcha gonna sell this week?
