CREATIVE SUMMARY & RISK ASSESMENT WHAT IS ALL IN FOR WASHINGTON?

The goal of our brand is to invite and entice our target audience into a conversation that educates and convinces them and the broader public about the value of taxes. The logo must compliment this brand and work well in print and digital materials.

COMMUNITARIANS

(16% OF THE POPULATION): If there is a pro-tax group in America, it would be this segment of the population. Communitarians are driven by community and by collective thinking. They see the value of pooling resources to invest in shared needs. They believe government revenues are too low, and would rather invest in communities than see the middle class get a tax cut. They are populist, knowledgeable about government budgets, and are politically engaged. Demographically, they tend to be liberal Democrats, female, the mosteducated segment, well-off, and white. Since this group is already on board, they can be influential with their peers with more confidence about how to express their opinion effectively.

INATTENTIVE STRIVERS

(29% OF THE POPULATION): Inattentive Strivers don’t pay much attention to tax and budget issues, and don’t really want to. They are middle-of-the-road in many opinions; however, the ideas that drive them tend to revolve around striving for the future, including a desire to invest in accomplishing great things, that taxes pay for things that support a good economy for everyone, and that taxes are a contribution to society. Demographically, they are the youngest of the groups, people of color, and high school educated, but their in-comes are average, so they may see themselves as being able to join the ranks of the middle class. In addition to the basic communications strategy outlined above, investing for shared goals and the future is particularly motivating for this group.

DUTIFUL DISCONTENTED

(33% OF THE POPULATION): This group is fairly average on many indicators, but they express a sense of duty when it comes to this issue; they want more citizen involvement in budgets and believe it is unpatriotic to dodge taxes. At the same time, they are discontented with taxes; they are more likely than some segments to believe state and federal government has too much revenue, that their taxes are too high, and want a middle-class tax cut over increased investments. When they hear about problems, they believe their tax dollars are wasted. Demographically, they tend to be older, working- and lower-class, of mixed race (but mostly white), and are more likely to have received Social Security and Medicare benefits in recent years. In addition to the basic strategy, this group will be motivated by shared responsibility, a call to patriotism, and to the idea that some at the top are avoiding their responsibilities.

RESENTFUL RICH,

10% OF THE POPULATION: The Resentful Rich resent taxes and think their taxes are too high and the poor don’t pay enough. They believe they are knowledgeable about government budgets, and are politically engaged. Demographically, they tend to be conservative Republicans, older, well-off (the highest-income group) white men. To the extent that communicators seek to influence this group, one goal would be to emphasize the idea of cleaning up the tax code for the purpose of good government, and not additional resources.

STRUGGLING POPULISTS

(12% OF THE POPULATION): This group holds many views that are similar to Communitarians—they think government has too little revenue, they want investments, and they voice populist views. On the other hand, they are struggling economically and are displeased with government, which leads to extreme tax sensitivity. They feel less knowledgeable about budgets and are less politically engaged than other segments. Demographically, they are more likely to have achieved a high school diploma or less educational attainment, to be younger, a person of color, Democratic, to have utilized government services (personally or someone in their household), and are the lowest-income segment. This is a group that wants more resources for their communities and more government action on their behalf, but they are economically stressed, so are sensitive to any hint that their taxes could go up.
