Proposal presented by VivaVoce & McWeeney.
Table of Contents:
CKI is not capitalizing on recent media attention for articles written by Charles Koch, and not converting that traffic into meaningful interactions.
We'll create a digital platform designed to host articles written by Charles Koch and any constituents, centered around (5-6) important issues that affect us as a nation. CKI can now effectively realize the media attention these articles generate and participate in the influence the Koch name offers, in a way they haven't before.
Readers will find articles containing a range of relevant media to tell a more complete story and involve them through smart, social integration. The platform will essentially, offer readers a unique point of view, and perspective on issues that might seem distant or until now, not fully understood.
Crafting interaction with clarity and coherence.
We're here to move fast. We estimate (4-6) weeks to plan, design, and build the new platform for CKI. Beginning with brief discussions to quickly identify our readers, and our strategy, ending with a round of thorough testing, then launch.
Kickoff (Week 1)
We'll work closely with CKI to first, understand more about the needs of our reader groups, starting with who they are, what they need to see, to which type of collaboration options to offer them at launch and in the future. Doing so will ensure they'll favor the experience, return, share and talk about the experience elsewhere.
Strategy (Week 1) With a clear picture of our readers, we'll contine to work closely with the CKI team to develop a strategy that enables us to present each issue with clarity and coherence, so every reader fully understands our position.
Copy/Brand Voice (Week 1/2) We'll develop the voice for this new brand/platform, alongside the CKI team, influencing how our mission statement and the overall tone of the experience. This core terminology and attitude will also influence interface elements to produce a truly cohesive experience.
Experience Design (Week 1/2/3) We'll take what we've learned and how we should describe this new platform to craft the simplest, most efficient path to issues and guide readers toward participation and sharing. The subject of each article will the focus, seamlessly integtating related content as part of the story, giving the reader a comprehensive picture of our point of view, and invite him to debate it, reinforcing the idea our platform is open, and worth sharing. The outcome will be a series of hi-quality wireframes we'll use to develop and design the experience.
Visual Design (Week 3/4/5) Using the wireframes as our guide, we'll design a beautifully simple, uncluttered space where issues are bold, well organized, and easy to consume on any device. Keeping the focus on what readers came for is our design strategy. As a result, we'll give them ways to quickly consume more, and share what they find.
Development (Week 2/3/4/5) Using the wireframes and early strategy discussions as a guide, we'll setup the basic WordPress functionality as soon as possible, using it as a foundation to build upon. Starting early enables CKI to enter content into WordPress from nearly the beginning, and it gives us real content to work with, reducing assumptions and expediting the workflow.
Launch (Week 5/6) We'll send rought a week BETA testing to ensure nothing was overlooled. Once everyone's happy, we'll move the website will from the secure development environment to the new domain.
We've created several award winning, highly-trafficked digital platforms, focused on helping grow communinites, introduce new resources, or raise attention for important civic and non-profit organizations.
Visit Kings Markets
NFL Players Association.
Visit Your PAF
Launched in May 2014, to critcal acclaim within the NFL community, this unique publishing platform gives NFL players a new way to manage their lives after football. Each player can tailor the experience to suit his needs, connect with a resource, and easily share something important with other players.
Working in close collaboration with the CKI team, we can offer years of award winning, consumer marketing experience, and connections with top media companies, to help spread the word about this new platform in meaningful ways. From unique media placements and social experiences, to interactive retail and event installations, and new uses of technology, to building partnerships and identifying interesting campaign opportunities.
Some of our successful, award winning consumer work.
We found women were using make to cover up or common colors to blend in. Revlon has been a leader in color and glamour for over 50 years, and felt it was time to remind the world. We created a global social experience that challenged women to try new Revlon colors and products in a way that focused on their features and accentuated their personality. With Revlon Brand Ambassadors and their celebrities friends involved, we introduced women to a new way of motivating and supporting each other using Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. As a result, Revlon experienced a rebirth as the original color pioneers, and inspired a new generation of women. At it's peak, more than 20,000 women a month participated and/or shared this unique experience.
United States Air Force.
Reality Show & Social Experience
The Air Force was after a new class of mechanice and engineers, the breed of engineers interested in making innovative new products and aircraft. Leveraging the reputation of World renowned Galpin Auto Sports, and the very best active-duty Air Force mechanics and engineers, Project Supercar was a unique build off to create two one-of-a-kind supercars. Fans flocked to Facebook and Twitter to follow and participate in the discussion, something the Air Force never experienced at this level. Recruitment numbers were 3-4x about average.
To publicize TD's unique paperless initiative in NYC, we brought the forest to the city. A life size, 0virtual habitat was created inside a TD Bank window and vintage NYC viewfinders were outfitted with audio and video. Busy New Yorkers were given the chance to interact with the animals, and virtually walk through the same environment TD is preserving everyday. In under 30 days, over 75,000 people spent more than 2 minutes with these experiences.
We'd love to schedule a follow up meeting to discuss consumer marketing opportunities for CKI, designed to draw significant attention to this new platform. Recent efforts have ranged from $25,000 - $50,000 for concepting through a broad range of creative execution. We're currently working closely with a number of brands leading social efforts in terms of editorial calendars, content development and commerical photography. We're confident, together, we can create some groundbreaking consumer focused work in short order.
We welcome your thoughts and feedback.
