The organization takes hundreds of local cafes and bounds them together into a network that lets Cafes and eateries to provide water to people who carry a reusable bottle.

It is not quite widely acknowledged by people about benefits of drinking tap water instead of buying bottled water and what the organization provides with them specifically. 3.

  7. 7. Strategy - General Audience: Main objective in orienting to general audience is to explain them why to use tap water and the current conditions of TapIt projects. Also, it is important to reflect that they can easily find the nearest place of tapIt. For that we suggest animation script, which will explain 10 facts why to drink Tap water and not buy bottled water. Another option is a fictional scripts which will tell about the project in easy-style gag 10’ and 30’ seconds spots.
  8. 8. Strategy - Business: The main idea of the video is that TapIt would allow businessmen to make more friendly connections with the customers and bring new customers to their business.
  9. 9. Medium: TV/Web Videos might be distributed online, as well as broadcasted on local TVstations. If video would be distributed online, they could include links on Google Play, Apple Store and web-site of TapIt using youtube interactive annotations.
