    37. 38. SwineCast : The opportunity to connect to customers Just enough Just in time Just about anywhere Just for me Detailed podcast experience example
    38. 39. SwineCast: Initially, why are we doing this? <ul><li>Situation: The current message delivery channels in Eli Lilly’s Elanco Animal Health, based upon feedback from their customers, is not ineffective, not usable, not conversational, not deep, not remembered. </li></ul><ul><li>Hypothesis : Audio channel delivery of Elanco messages will improve recall over traditional current channels of sales reps, print, or web. Additionally, an audio channel delivered as a podcast will provide a conversational channel with customers. Finally, the target audience for SwineCast have drive time available to listen. </li></ul><ul><li>This concept and prototype development is to learn about the audio channel and discover if it is a better channel for message recall. </li></ul><ul><li>Additionally, this prototype will help identify other opportunities in which to use portable audio (i.e.; podcasting). </li></ul>
    39. 40. SwineCast: Why are we doing this? (cont) <ul><li>Hypothesis measurement tool: The message recall survey will run twice on about 200 Elanco customers who have agreed to participate in the survey. The first survey will ask questions to measure message recall from the sources 1) sales force, 2) print, 3) web site. </li></ul><ul><li>The second survey will ask questions to measure message recall from the sources 1) sales force, 2) print, 3) web site, 4) SwineCast. </li></ul>
    40. 41. SwineCast expanded to connect in multiple ways <ul><li>We engage the audience via </li></ul><ul><li>Audio </li></ul><ul><li>Video (Blip.TV, YouTube) </li></ul><ul><li>Blogs </li></ul><ul><li>Email </li></ul><ul><li>In person </li></ul><ul><li>On the phone </li></ul>
    41. 42. The audience is very narrow <ul><li>How many people in the USA would be interested in the swine industry? </li></ul>
