Campaign and Style Guides
When one thinks of “Public Education,” what do they really think of? The teacher that helped you in High School, your best friend acting foolish in Math class or the place where you would “hang out.” Your “Public Education years bring back all types of memories. But, one never remembers or thinks of the people that cleaned the school rooms, or cooked you lunch, or drove the bus to get you to and from school. These selfless people in their dedication are unkown heros. These benevolent individuals are seldom heard. 3

MEMBERSHIP RECRUITMENT CAMPAIGN
Presently the membership cannot identify with the ESEA. Over 85% do not know the benefits of membership. Many say, “Why should I join,” or “Pay the money for what?” To turn this trend around with the ESEA membership, there has to be a connection between the membership and ESEA. This can be achieved by making the members feel like they belong to strong organization that is working in their best interest. They want to belong! 29
Making Membership Growth Happen 1. Make a color ID card with the membersâ€˜ picture and member number. This will instill a strong image what they are joining is a worthwhile organization. 2.When the ID cards are being made a questionnaire filled out by the member with Name, contact information, email, text numbers and member number 30
on the form. This will be used for the database and for immediate action steps during election and legislative activity. 3. An identifying button will be given to each member. “I’M IN”. 4. If a new member wants to join maybe give him some “swag” hat or mug along with a button. These steps ad a positive position or feeling about the ESEA. This is immediate. 5. Prizes can be offered from 31
the community sponsors for the ESEA member that recruitâ€™s the most new member. The first school has 100% ESEA membership wins some worthwhile prize. 6. The membership id numbers will be used to authenticate a real member from non-members. This is important for prizes that are offered on Facebook. 7. Benefits should be discussed at every opportunity. 32
Media and the ESEA
Social media uses, Facebook, Twitter and all the others will integrate the media from the web page. The second goal of the campaignâ€™s tried to create a community. Social media shall be the sounding board and the meeting room for all this to happen. The ESEA will use this for information and feed back of the membership. Target social media users with exclusive content and ask for them to share it. Create the tribe of the ESEA. 35
RADIO AND TELEVISION
Radio and Television will not be use in this campaign because of cost. Electronic media that is going to use here will be for the iPhone, tablet, and email. All these medias will be used to delivery of a message. The message reflects the print campaignâ€™s standardization. Video and music played as a banner content delivery parameter. The ESEAâ€™s web page presented as news, information medium, Union news, social activities, discounts, and contests with prizes. All electronic and socially will be 38
linked to each other. Examples when contemplating the web site you see the membership contest. The prize is worth the effort so you click the button, and this goes to the page that explains the contest. Each member will be emailed the contest procedures and how to enter and win. Remember that 58% of people start their online day by reading emails. (Exact Target’s X Factor Study 2010) “The dominance of email activity on mobile devices increased from 37.4% to 41.6% of US mobile Internet time” –The Nielsen Company 39
Video and music media will draw in the membership as an interest and a content media. Music will create an interest to draw you into the video. The video will give you content which is also needed. You can also think of the video as an advertisement you can play many roles. The video and the music will be used with the social media as content and interest grabber.
Print media will standardize the logo brand. The use of clothing (swag) continues the recognition flow. Poster and select print ads used with the proper placement and cost. Buttons help the membership achieve an identity and starts the tribal process. Bestowing on the membership a visual identification with the ESEA, starting the recognition process. The logo is major identifying element. When polled only 20% could identify the old logo with the ESEA, and less than 10% knew what the ESEA stood for. 43
