Proposal to: Pete Paquette, Paquette Productions ELVIS: The Moments Marketing Also Paquette Productions Re-Branding

Proposal by: Michael Tsirakis, D&D Creative December 2, 2013 michael.tsirakis@mail.utoronto.ca


PREAMBLE Pete Paquette is one of Canada’s top ranked Elvis Tribute Artists. He has also claimed numerous titles across Canada and the United States including 2-time Collingwood Elvis Festival Grand Champion, Toronto Elvis Festival Grand Champion, Best Performer at the Las Vegas Elvis Festival, and ranked one of top 10 Tribute Artists in the world. In 2010, Pete retired from the competition world and started his own company, Paquette Productions. Under this company, Pete brought his portrayal of Elvis to a new level, self-producing his show, “Elvis – The Moments.”

P

This must see show covers the musical career of one of the most celebrated entertainers, from early Rock n’ Roll to the Vegas Years. An authentic and energetic show, showcasing the King's early years of the 1950’s, to the army, movies, ’68 comeback and the memorable Vegas years. While the primary audience is the baby boomer generation, Paquette Productions is shifting towards attracting a younger audience. Thus, Elvis – The Moments is a show for all ages and fuses old with new by including a variety of sounds and visuals that will excite young children and elderly individuals. A yearly revenue goal for Paquette Productions is approximately $100,000 and the company is looking to market 2014 shows to the masses, both in Ontario and in British Columbia. This includes generating excitement around Pete’s upcoming performances and highlighting the show itself through posters, newspaper and web advertisements, commercials and radio spots. In addition, Paquette Productions wants to become a production company and expand with a variety of shows. Thus, the company will benefit from a branding package including a logo, business card, letterhead and envelop design, assisting the company in its business side. To match Pete’s charisma, energy, moves and voice, an innovative and just as exciting marketing campaign and branding package is essential.

P R O D U C T I O N S

The last few pages have shown the new direction I am proposing for Paquette Productions. While it is a modern update for the company, old elements still remain, and the materials are attractive to both younger and older individuals. I wanted to ensure that this was achieved because of the new direction the company is progressing towards.

Furthermore, Paquette Productions wants to expand outside of simply ELVIS: The Moments, and would like to become a full production company. With this in mind, it was important to develop a branding strategy that was separate from ELVIS: The Moment promotional materials.

Paquette Productions now has a true identity and a logo that people can easily identify. Now that you have seen the three concepts for promoting ELVIS: The Moments and a new branding strategy, there is only one question left...

APPENDIX The following pages display my research for this proposal

Discussion with Pete Paquette Line of business: entertainment company: Conclude that this prototype can be remodeled to fit other kinds of events, based on one thing (an Elvis show) Target Audience: The baby boomer generation is the primary audience, but they are trying to attract a younger audience, so the target audience is shifting…fusing old with new…a show for all ages (a mixture of old and new)…an old idea and identity with today’s modern design and aesthetics, and modern marketing designs Revenue: it could hit $250,000 (depends how you do it…through the number of shows and a variety of different shows). Breakdown of Revenue: ELVIS: The Moments: $262,000 (300 tickets x $35 x 25 shows) $35 x 300 = $10, 500 (per show) What they keep - $4,000 per show $4,000 x $25 = $100,000 (WHAT THEY TAKE IN A YEAR) Direction: to become a production company versus just a show ( just one show)…to expand with a variety of shows, not just elvis…to appeal to a wider variety of people
