Redesigned a Targeted B2C Audience Program
Situation: An organization had been communicating electronically with a hodgepodge mix of customers, caregivers, subject interested individuals and company staff for two years. The organization focused on critical behavioral health issues like Autism, Substance Abuse and similar subjects. There was little to no growth in the audience size and there were no metrics regarding engagement. There were business questions about the value of the communications, what if any engagement with the topics was being generated and it was unclear if people were even participating in monthly webinars.
Actions: The organization's program moved its operations from an agency to my team initially for deployment and tracking services. After building trust in the digital leadership and marketing expertise we worked with the organization's creative teams, subject matter experts and management hierarchy to begin marketing campaign redesigns. In parallel programs we addressed se
gmented target audience growth and engagement objectives, creative changes to deliver on the true value proposition of the various categories and began testing, building expectations and adding tools for calendaring and webinar tracking.
Results: Over the course of three years the organization’s communication campaigns experienced significant changes the design of the e-mail communications that demonstrated improved unique open and forward rates.
