  2. 2. Copyright © 2015 by IQ Agency The digital age has made it possible for a brand to create a self- perpetuating marketing system built on Owned and Earned media, and only triggered by Paid. This doesn’t happen by accident and requires rigorous planning. Our approach incorporates a number of deliverables and sub- deliverables which ladder up to the Playbook: • Brand Activation • Discovery • Journey Mapping • Content Strategy • Measurement & analytics • Playbook 2 THEOBJECTIVE Copyright © 2015 by IQ Agency
  3. 3. Copyright © 2015 by IQ Agency 1.DISCOVERY First we need to define and segment the target audience, map their behavior and understand their psychology. So we begin with what research is available and add Social Listening and Search Analysis to see what they have been saying and doing. We also examine the competition, the category and internal capabilities to identify opportunities and barriers. Together we then decide what gaps in our knowledge need to be filled.

With the complexity of influences and touch-points today, it is vital that we understand exactly how consumer segments typically behave. Journey Mapping reveals the critical interaction and influence points where we can focus our resources for maximum impact. Copyright © 2015 by IQ Agency

Content Strategy tells us what to say, and how to say it, to each segment, at each of the key interaction points on the journey. Knowing the segment, the stage of their journey and the context allow us to deliver exactly the right message at the right time. 5Copyright © 2015 by IQ Agency 3.
