innovation is a proliferating arena of Political marketing. Besides, one of the most topical brand that has caused insurgence
in the political market with his revolutionary political marketing strategies is the present, 45th President of the US–Donald

mind, even castigated for this approach, he emerged out victorious. Hence, the objectives of this study encompass analysis

political marketing by taking lessons from these strategies. The methodology adopted for the study is qualitative and

using more of free media rather than paid media; and focusing on creating a personal touch with the electorate. From these
findings, the main outcome of the study focuses on the identification of potential avenues of research in the sphere of
