Obama, Clinton and Web 2.0



My friend and I were talking about the Democratic candidates and their websites last night. I couldn’t help but notice how “Web 2.0” Obama’s and Clinton’s websites are. Not only are their websites are well designed, but they are also active in many social media websites and outlets.

I couldn’t help but do a quick analysis of both of their website. (I know I am kinda geeky sometimes…) I think as entrepreneurs & business owners, there is loads to learn from their websites. Think about it… they are both marketing very similar thing - their candidacy and their vision and they even use the same social media channels, but their messages and the way they make people feel are quite different.

P.S. When I click the Facebook link on HillaryClinton.com, it will take me to Facebook within the same browser versus on BarackObama.com, it will open up a new browser.

Hope you enjoy my analysis. =)

    Excellent and thorough analysis, but I would like to hear what inferences you draw, and what the respective ramifications are of each.

    This is an interesting analysis. I’ll have to take it as read that you are unbiased.

    I guess that Barack is better advised and I also wonder if there is a stamp of personal leadership here - like Obama signed off the finished product.
