November/December events are planned for entrepreneurship, BPO and offshore wind.• Metrics are set out in each campaign template document but the parts of the campaign MC provides (e.g. brochures, events) would also be evaluated 16

  20. 20. Inward investment videos• Short videos are state-of-the-art marketing that appeal to the new generation of entrepreneurs but are stronger in some sectors than others, especially creative industries and software, so longer videos also planned• Plan to make a series of some ten longer videos in-house and edit BBE testimonial footage• Evaluation is rapid from client feedback and cost of investment in a single video is relatively low 20
  21. 21. Multi-sector brochure and quality of life kit• The creation of a multi-purpose brochure will cover a variety of business needs.

  23. 23. Evaluation Issues, out-takes and outcomes 23
  24. 24. Evaluation and risk• FDI success is linked [retrospectively] to economic performance but by marketing in one segment and not another comparable segment, overall marketing effectiveness could be gauged• Evaluation should be both summative (during projects) and formative (at the end to apply learnings to future projects) 24
