Digital Marketing Campaign help

23 replies
Hi

I have previously worked as a Marketing Exec in a broad marketing role and am looking to move into a digital marketing role - I need to prepare a presentation of a campaign outline for how I would plan and run a campaign for a charity to increase event participation. I am going to discuss targeting correct audience, PPC - ad grants, display, social media (youtube, facebook, twitter), SEO - keywords. Am I missing something huge? Im finding it difficult as I dont have experience with these channels so any help would be massively appreciated!!

Thank you

    I think you have pretty much everything covered. I'd say Facebook is your biggest asset when advertising a local charity event. Creating an event page and sharing it with your friends is a great way to start. Offline marketing (distributing flyers, etc) could also work great.

    I don't know the exact date of your event, but SEO takes time. You won't rank for your desired keywords overnight, more like a few months.

    Hope you are doing good. Before switching to Digital marketing field you already know much about it. You can learn SEO techniques and SMM campaigns & community management from different sources. Lastly, I would like to say, you get real experience only after practically dig into that field under the guidance of your seniors.

    Targetting local public, your best bet would be social media and make your event go viral by putting in an extra dime on Facebook.

    Try it out a couple days and analyze the results.

    Facebook is 800 lb guerilla. Uncle sam, aunt suzy; next door neighbour joe; cousin pam everybody is on it. To reach your target audience ; you need to know demographic profile: Age, gender, geo, income , jobs and pair them with interest cluster. For e.g. tatoo interest cluster could be tatoo, body art, body piercing, tatoo magazines.

    It is good that you are targeting the local market. It saves you from using advanced marketing tools like SEO. Facebook and Instagram will do it for you. Also, consider using traditional media like newspapers, radio, and TV.

  • The above mention by you looks great, before anything else, think about your audience. Who are they? then you can prepare your plan to target them. For example if the event is local then no point advertising it nationally as people may not be able to attend.

    Depending budget, in terms of channels use both online and offline. Online including PPC, Social Media and for offline include flyers, magazine inserts.

    Good luck

      I agree, so the first thing is to identify your audience. Once it is done, find out where they hang most. Then market yourself on the social media and websites.
