  • Hi,
    Thanks for your insights and creating a new focus in planning. This is THE contemporary planning we all planners do - consciously or otherwise. I was trying to download this file - but seems it has been uploaded as a keynote file, not PDF or PPT. Most of the users like me are not using Mac. So is it possible to reload the file in PDF?
    Thanks in advance!
    SSG

    • THE PRACTICE OF PROPAGATION PLANNING Griffin Farley Boulder Digital Works NYC 2010
    • MY BACKGROUND YEAR 1-5 YEAR 6-8 YEAR 9-11 YEAR 12+ 2
    • WHY PROPAGATION PLANNING? Because Connection Planning has been around since 1999. We were due for a new theory. I wanted to find out what comes next? That’s when I discovered the work that Naked had done around Propagation Planning. 3
    • PLANNERS ARE INSPIRING NEW TALENT click to view video 4
    • WTF IS PROPAGATION PLANNING?
    • STRING OF PLANNING THEORIES If Account Planning inspires better creative thinking -and- Connection Planning inspires better media thinking -then- Propagation Planning inspires better word of mouth (or social) thinking 6
    • THE LEGEND In 1999, The Blair Witch Project changed the way we look at marketing success. Digital and Word of Mouth now had a powerful case study. http://www.forbes.com/2010/08/17/facebook-old-spice-farmville-pepsi-forbes-viral-marketing-cmo-network-social-media.html?boxes=Homepagemostemailed Ivan Pollard from Naked presented the theory of propagation planning at the APG Battle of Big Thinking in October of 2006. http://theapg.typepad.com/battleofbigthinking/2006/10/thoughts_from_i.html Faris Yakob wrote an award winning IPA essay that included the subject in 2007, which was featured in Campaign Magazine. http://www.campaignlive.co.uk/news/features/769167/IPA-Diploma-Presidents-Prize-Essay-Faris-Yakob/ In 2008, Nikki Stammers, one of the first planners to have the title Propagation Planner wrote an article titled a Controlled Explosion for the Australian B&T. http://www.bandt.com.au/blog/blogposts.asp?postid=629 In December of 2008 Griffin Farley created a Blog called Propagation Planning. http://www.propagationplanning.com In 2010, Anjali Ramachandran created a Wiki for Propagation Planning and was the first to truly organize the 5 or 6 planners worldwide who concentrated on this. http://propagationplanning.pbworks.com/ 7
    • THE HOPE “When the phase ‘Word of Mouth’ is bandied around, more often than not, what is being referred to is an immeasurable yet highly desirable campaign ‘side effect’. But things have moved on: the muddy and mystical times that once defined attempts at harnessing it are changing. Propagation planning - a technique capable of kick-starting, controlling and exploiting the WOM affect - is moving the area forward.” - Nikki Stammers for B&T 8
    • THE THEORY PROPAGATION PLANNING Plan not for the people you reach, but the people that they reach 9

    • PROPAGATION PLANNING BRIEFWhat is remarkable about the Brand, Product or Service?This area helps us ground the propagation campaign back in the product. Think about the Johnnie Walker, the Man who Walked around the World video whenanswering this question.Who is the target audience?Is there an audience that the client needs to reach to meet their business objectives? What is the action that this audience needs to act on to reach theseobjectives? Think of this audience as your aspirational audience.Is there another group of people that has more persuasion over the target audience?This group of people might be more likely to engage with the creative assets or act on the creative to influence the real target audience. Think about Great Schlep,Coraline or Oasis campaigns when answering this. Think of this audience as your inspirational audience.How does the creative foster a social experience?Is the creative designed to entertain, act as a branded utility, to challenge, to spawn user generated content, etc. Think about challenges like Nike Grid,experiences like Doritos Hotel 626 or the seed paper in the Haagen-Dazs Help the Honey Bees campaigns when answering this question.Why would someone want to pass something like this to others?This is an area to talk about social theories (i.e. custom or personalized, gift economy, peer production, random acts of kindness, pay it forward, etc) into why thiscreative might be shared and passed along among friends. Think about campaigns like Elf Yourself, Radio Head, NIN or Earth Hour when answering this.What are the existing creative assets (if any)?List the creative assets that already exist. This gives the creative a chance to use these assets in new ways? Ask yourself if new things need to be created to helpextend the narrative. Think about the True Blood campaign when the agencies created a pre-story to existing assets when answering this.How long do we have before the paid media begins?This is a timing question that reminds us how to use Owned, Earned and Paid media appropriately.What are the benchmarks and metrics will we be following? 56This helps the creative team know if there are platforms that the client feels are most important to measure success (Acquisitions, Facebook or Twitter followers,video views, etc.). If the client doesn’t have specific metrics list the ones that you will follow including impressions, reach, interaction and most importantlysentiment.
