  • 12. WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THIS INFORMATION? • Data is irrelevant if there isn’t content with context. • You need to identify core finding that are the result of your research. • What is the audience? • How do we reach them? • What are barriers we haven’t thought of? • SWOT analysis can help here.
  • 13. WHAT DO YOU DO WITH THIS INFORMATION? • Those finding are at the core of your big idea, objectives and programming. • If this isn’t aligned, you don’t do well.
  • 15. OBJECTIVES • Goals are often provided to you. • You create a big idea that unifies the campaign. • Objectives make the abstract big idea more concrete. • We do a bad job creative objectives. • It muddies the campaign.
  • 16. LET’S TALK THE BIG IDEA • You want a connected protagonist. • You want a brand archetype the audience can believe in. • This influences tone, color and imaging.

  • 18. WHAT DOES A GOOD OBJECTIVE HAVE? • Singular infinitive phrase. • It must be quantified. • It must be difficult to reach but attainable. • It must be aligned with the research and audience.
  • 20. PROGRAMMING • This is a media kit. • This is social media. • This is an advertising plan. • You choose what you think will work for the client. • You also create the content.
  • 21. PROGRAMMING You will need to do two things related to programming. 1. You need to explain how this programming aligns with the research, goals, big idea and objectives. 2. When you create the programming, the content needs to do what you say it’s going to do. 3. It needs to meet the criteria I talked about in 3700. Same grading rules apply.
  • 23. EVALUATION SHOULD BE EASY • Did you meet the targets listed in the objectives? • If your objectives are bad, this goes haywire.
