BJP's Digital Dominance: A Strategic Surge on YouTube with Rs 19 Crore Google Ad Spend in a Year

BJP's Digital Dominance: A Strategic Surge on YouTube with Rs 19 Crore Google Ad Spend in a Year

New Delhi: The BJP strategically utilized YouTube to gain political influence, allocating Rs 19 crore for Google Ads within a year. Specifically, the party directed Rs 7.2 crore towards Google advertisements for the Karnataka elections, and an additional Rs 7.71 crore for campaigns in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh. As the ruling party at the center, the Bharatiya Janata Party showcased a forward-thinking approach, investing significantly in Google Ads to reach a wider audience in the technological era. In 2023, during assembly elections in nine states, the BJP emerged as a prominent player, utilizing Google Ads for widespread promotion. Notably, the party outpaced other political entities, with Congress trailing in digital spending. Google Ad Transparency data reveals that the BJP's expenditure on Google Ads in 2023 amounted to approximately Rs 19 crore.

 

Furthermore, these advertisements prominently featured during the assembly elections showcased both the party's agenda and the accomplishments of the Modi government in that particular year. The strategic dissemination of these ads took place primarily through the YouTube platform, capitalizing on its extensive reach.

 

With the impending Lok Sabha elections this year, there is an anticipation that the BJP's investment in Google Ads will scale proportionally. In the previous Lok Sabha elections of 2019, the BJP had allocated Rs 17 crore for Google Ads, indicating a historical commitment to digital campaigning.

 

A significant portion of the Google ads released in the past year was dedicated to the assembly elections. Despite the considerable expenditure, particularly in the Karnataka assembly elections where Rs 7.2 crore was invested, the party did not regain power in that region.

 

In other states like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh, the BJP allocated Rs 7.71 crore for Google Ads, showcasing a comprehensive digital strategy across multiple regions. Conversely, in the Telangana Assembly elections, KCR-led BRS took the lead by issuing advertisements worth Rs 12.1 crore, surpassing the BJP's entire annual expenditure on Google Ads. The party, despite being the second-largest spender, demonstrated its commitment to digital outreach in the electoral landscape.
