statistics prove that video works. In fact, Forrester Research found that videos were 50 times more likely to receive an organic first page ranking than traditional text pages.” A video series will detail how people changed others lives through Wish Upon A Hero on YouTube and Vimeo. It’s because of video marketing strength; I decided to use it to get my target audience’s attention. Video marketing meets Wish Upon A Hero’s need to increase website hits and site usage. Transit advertising is one of the most cost effective ways to reach consumers. Olenski (2011) states, “71% of us “often look at the messages on roadside billboards (traditional and digital combined) and more than one-third (37%) report looking at an outdoor ad each or most of the time they pass one.” With those stats in mind, a billboard and taxi ad will definitely reach the campaign’s consumers. Transit ads will encourage people to visit Wish Upon A Hero’s site. Ads will also be placed on train and bus passes. Print still an effective medium despite online ad surpassing it in revenue. Baekdal (2012) notes, “Print carries a longer shelf life than online content, which increases the number of viewing opportunities by targeted enraged readers. The “Quality of Reading Survey” – recently published by PPA Marketing – has shown that in just three days, a single copy of a magazine is picked up by readers an average of five or six times. As a result, the average ad is viewed 2.4 times a day.” Wish Upon A Hero’s ads will inspire people to take action and visit the website.

She invites all her friends on Facebook to attend the fund-raiser and tweets about it. The event will be first one she attended that was sponsored by the Wish Upon A Hero Foundation. She wasn’t familiar with the organization but looked them up on her iPad. Lauren was in awe of the social helping network. She spent an hour looking for wishes she could grant. A mother in Kansas needed coats for her three kids. Lauren went out and brought 3 coats. She felt a big sense of pride after granting the mother’s wish and couldn’t hold back a big smile as she sent it. Lauren tossed her gym bag in the car and turned the music up as she headed to work.

3.4 Typography

Typography Typography helps set the tone of the message you want to convey. It’s important for the typography to complement the images that will inspire people. Most charities use a serif typeface. The chosen type will set it apart from other helping organizations. Serifs are a little more decorative than sans serif. BBC (2010) notes the difference between serifs and sans serifs, “One of the crucial dilemmas is whether to opt for serif or sans serif. In a serif typeface the letters have extra curls and bobbles, reminiscent of calligraphy, whereas in sans serif (literally without serif ) the letter forms have clean lines without any protruding bits.” Wish Upon A Hero uses Lucinda Grande from the Lucinda typeface family. It’s easy to read and matches the ever changing social media lanscape. Facebook, another social network also uses a font from the Lucinda family.
