Strategies

Connect

Eric Rigaud

Utilize existing social networking sites (i.e., Facebook, Twitter, LiveJournal, YouTube, etc.) to provide multiple touch-points for community connection around The Success Roadmap, with usergenerated content being pushed and aggregated into one central hub.

Create a portable and viral means for members to share The Success Roadmap with colleagues and friends and encourage them to join, pulling them into the Roadmap.

Recommendation (Mashup: a web page or application that combines data or functionality from two or more external sources to create a new service.) Create a social media mashup that highlights The Success Roadmap (powered by Strive) and provides clear and tangible ways for all citizens of Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky to participate in The Success Roadmap, ensuring the success of children. Create a mentoring campaign to spur deep engagement and provide participants with a familiar way to support children at critical intervention points along The Success Roadmap. Celebrate our successes by creating a mentor awards ceremony that highlights those that have gone beyond the call of duty to support children. Create a Success Roadmap “Badge” that highlights a participant’s support for The Success Roadmap, making it easy for members to promote their support on their social network profiles, blogs, websites, etc., and encourages friends to join their efforts to support children via mentoring, technical assistance or donating money. Create a viral video campaign as a “call to action” to drive local residents to be a mentor and to spread the word. The Success Roadmap mashup will complement the existing Strive web site and not replace it. Eric Rigaud

Why “powered by Strive?” By highlighting The Success Roadmap exclusively, the focus of a potential supporters’ efforts is focused on one thing: helping children to achieve and prosper using a data-driven model that works. This reduces the barrier for potential participants who are more prone to support a good idea than they are to support a brand. This becomes particularly important in social networking environments where members largely eschew branding and embrace authentic connection and altruism. By repositioning the brand as the driving force behind The Success Roadmap (vs. attached to the name), we can uniquely tie Strive branding to only the most optimal, celebratory moments and successes of the Roadmap, while managing risk to the brand by putting distance between it and the Roadmap should there ever be any negative issues that arise with the Roadmap. In addition, this approach allows for the creation of a pipeline of products and services that are “powered by Strive”, allowing the brand to take on a life of its own beyond The Success Roadmap.

What is ideal timing to launch The Success Roadmap?

Key Questions

Who are the key decision makers that can green light a plan? What information do they need? Who develops communications strategy? Who implements? Is there a design style guide for Strive? How much flexibility do we have from a design perspective? How will The Success Roadmap be administered over time? How will the social media “spokes� be refreshed over time? Who develops the mentoring campaign? Who implements? Who else do we need at the table to guarantee success? How do we enroll local media to support The Success Roadmap and the mentoring campaign? Is there funding currently allocated to this work? Where can we seek additional funding?

Previous Work Examples

YouthNOISE

With YouthNOISE, we created a platform for teenagers just weeks after 9/11 that provided a voice for 13-18 year-olds to discuss their most pressing issues and concerns, connect to others with similar interests and find ways to act, supported by partnerships with MTV, Seventeen magazine, Teen Vogue, AOL Teens, Nike, and many others. I utilized database driven marketing to identify the most hotly discussed topics and then elevate them to the homepage. I would then identify partners in real time and create customized campaigns to catalyze member action. Eric Rigaud

Previous Work Examples

TouchDC

We built TouchDC based on the premise that local residents would “give where they live� if there was a convenient and reliable resource that facilitated the process of searching and learning about local charities working in their neighborhoods. TouchDC was a regionally licensed mashup of 3 national databases: 1) Guidestar for 990 information on every charity in the DC metro region; 2) VolunteerMatch for local volunteer opportunities; and 3) Network for Good for online charitable donations functionality. TouchDC raised over $8 million in 3 years from microdonations by local residents. Eric Rigaud
