Neale, Larry, Hughes, Andrew, & Dann, Stephen M. (2008) Exploring the application of personal brands and opinion leadership in political marketing. In ANZMAC 2008, 1-3 December 2008, University of Western Sydney, Sydney.
Personal brands have received relatively limited academic treatment despite a commercial sector interest in the technique in the last few decades. As a relatively new academic phenomenon, much of the marketing research in the field is dedicated to the isolation of the personal brand construct from the interconnected areas of opinion leadership, celebrity endorsement and inanimate objects brand theory. This paper explores how personal brands are related to opinion leadership theory, and the growth of personal brands in political marketing.
