National embraces a more positive sporting analogy for first campaign TVC

The National Party has been forced to make a few rugby analogies in recent days as it deals with the fallout from Nicky Hager's Dirty Politics. But it's used a rowing analogy in its new TVC to try and show Kiwis it's a smooth, well-oiled, economic machine that's taking the country in the right direction and that its opponents are bumbling idiots.

From aspirational to confrontational: Green Party brings the issues into the open for election push

For the past two elections, The Green Party's messaging has been what national campaign director Ben Youdan calls "aspirational".

How Kiwi political parties measure up on Facebook

Facebook has revealed a series of insights on how the Kiwi political parties are doing in the lead up to the 2014 general election. And given that 1.8 million Kiwis log in to Facebook on a daily basis and that 'election' was the second-most commonly used phrase on the site in 2013 (only bettered by Pope Francis), the social media channel is becoming an increasingly important space for politicians to share their policies—or general vitriol—with potential voters.
